I'm Morgan Pommells, and I am here to help you reclaim the sense of self that you never knew you lost.

Welcome 

"Growing up with an emotionally immature parent is akin to growing up inside of a cult."

You likely had to squash your own desires just for the chance to be acknowledged. You found yourself taking on your parents' interests or maybe even joining in on their judgments or other mean behavior—not out of true alignment, but from a desperate need for closeness with them. In doing so, you've learned to become a performer for others, trying so hard to just be lovable and worthy in hopes that someone finally sees you.












The result is a life where you've been so focused on becoming who others want you to be that you've lost sight of who you actually are.

My life's work is to help you get yourself back.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent years working in humanitarian assistance. As someone who feels deeply passionate about alleviating injustices in the world, I expected to work in front-line social activism for the rest of my life.

But it was in my early career that I realized so much of the pain experienced by others was a result of the shame-based and hypercritical parenting techniques that were bestowed upon them. And yet, to my surprise (and mild rage), no one seemed to bat an eye at these problematic approaches.

This type of parenting has devastating consequences. It causes you to distrust yourself and to discard your inner world, leaving you with a pervasive feeling of never being good enough. It causes you to turn to perfectionism as a way to cover up the constant wondering of 'why don't they actually like me?' And because of the insidious and sneaky nature of this abuse, you likely continue to blame yourself for the way you were treated.

In a world where emotional abuse often goes unrecognized, my mission: to help survivors of emotionally abusive parents rebuild their trust in themselves and reclaim their inner world after experiencing such deeply invisible trauma.

I am not a jack-of-all-trades therapist. Instead, my writing and my clinical work exist to help survivors everywhere recognize their worth and heal the wounds inflicted by those who were supposed to protect and nurture them the most.
