Welcome to Morning Light Counseling!
Morning Light Counseling is the private practice of Carrie M. Wrigley, LCSW, located in Sandy, Utah - treating depression, anxiety, marriage and family problems, grief, addiction, & other emotional challenges.
Carrie seeks to empower her clients with hope, healing, and happiness. She uses cognitive therapy, positive psychology, behavioral intervention, lifestyle training, and other approaches, teaching clients powerful skills they can use both in the short term, and in the long term, to bring relief, increase productivity, and expand joy.
Carrie's twenty-five-plus years as a counselor have equipped her to serve a wide variety of clients. She counsels adults, teens, and children, male and female - offering faith-based (LDS & Christian) counseling for those desiring that approach; and mainstream therapy for those preferring a more secular approach. Counseling is available for men and women, teens and children, in individual, couple, or family sessions.
Carrie also provides couples counseling, assisting with communication issues, personality conflicts, infidelity and sexual addiction issues, parenting concerns, and other challenges. She offers family counseling designed to increase mutual understanding, cooperation, and unity within the family.
Online counseling is available (by phone or Zoom) for those preferring it for health, distance, or time reasons.
Carrie is committed to providing therapy in a way that empowers clients with powerful information, practical tools, and caring support to improve their lives and their relationships.
History of Morning Light Counseling
Morning Light Counseling opened its doors on July 31, 2009. Carrie had previously worked as a counselor for 17 years at LDS Family Services, providing spiritually-based counseling for a wide range of LDS clients. She then worked for nearly a year as Program Development Director for Beacon Family Mental Health, developing programs, establishing contacts, creating materials, developing Beacon’s website, etc. Meanwhile, she had also taught for 10 years (now 20+ years) at BYU Education Week and elsewhere, creating presentations and teaching classes on emotional healing and relationship enhancement.
With the counseling and administrative experience gained from these various experiences, Carrie decided to open this private practice, committed to helping individuals, couples, and families develop new skills to heal and thrive, even in the midst of significant challenges.
The Morning Light logo expresses the confidence that the sun always rises, even after the very darkest, most difficult night. No matter how difficult things have been, no matter how challenging or heartbreaking a situation might have felt, there is always hope - there is always the promise of a radiant new day.
