The counselor consultants are mental health professionals who are employed by the Counseling & Psychological Services Center and work in that setting as well as working at Let's Talk locations. Check out the bios of the Spring 2021 semester Let's Talk counselor consultants:
Audrey Stone, M.A.
Staff Counselor, Groups Coordinator
(Pronouns: she, her, hers)
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina, Registered Expressive Arts Therapist
Graduate Program: Master in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Graduate Certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy, Appalachian State University
Masters Internship: Counseling & Psychological Services Center, Appalachian State University
Audrey is a generalist by training, and as such enjoys working with students with a broad variety of presenting concerns. These commonly include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, grief, and eating concerns. Special areas of interest include group therapy, campus outreach, connecting with traditionally under-served student populations, and the therapeutic use of art for healing and self-expression.
Audrey uses an integrative, person-centered approach to therapy that draws on mindfulness, interpersonal processing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and expressive arts therapy. She strives to incorporate a multicultural perspective into her work, acknowledging and valuing the many identities that shape her clients' unique experiences in the world. She places great importance on authenticity, support, challenge, and even humor in her sessions.
Matthew C. Morgan, Psy.D.
(Pronouns: he, him, his)
Doctorate Program: La Salle University
Doctoral Internship: Immaculata Consortium: Belmont Behavioral Hospital Outpatient Program
Matt has experience working in inpatient psychiatric hospitals, community mental health clinics, and college counseling centers and has worked with most varieties of psychological distress and illness. He has particular interests in mindfulness-based interventions and psychosis, but believes that all varieties of psychological distress inform aspects of the human experience.
Initially, Matt focuses on building understanding and appreciation of others’ experience, and drawing out the processes which contribute to distress. After mutually acceptable consensus is reached, he will likely encourage informed and relevant experimentations in self-awareness practices, daily habits, and styles of interaction. Matt’s primary training is in cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-oriented treatment approaches, and is informed by a variety of perspectives, including evolutionary, psychodynamic, existential and transpersonal.
