Morag Webb

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

(#MFC32877)

 

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Morag Webb has developed a busy private practice working with individual adults, children, and adolescents. With over 20 years of experience in the field, she has a thorough understanding of psychology across the life span and a love for working with people of all ages.

Adults and children find it easy to talk with her about their problems. Often the concerns that people bring to Morag are related to worries and fears. Morag treats adults and children with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, grief, divorce, low self-esteem and children struggling with peer relations, ADHD, behavioral problems, medical conditions, and adoption issues.

Morag Webb began her work with children at the UCI Child Development Center. She was successful in connecting with and facilitating behavioral change in children with neurological challenges such as Attention Deficit Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Following this, she provided therapy for children with trauma through Olive Crest Treatment Centers, which serves abused, neglected and abandoned children. She went on to work for the Irvine Unified School District providing group counseling to at risk teens in middle school and high school. Alongside her work in the public schools, she completed credentials in School Counseling and School Psychology.

In her extensive work with adults, Morag Webb brings a passion for facilitating emotional healing, deepening her clients’ self-knowledge, and helping resolve personal problems. Morag’s love of working with adults was sparked at her first training site, La Vie Counseling Center in Pasadena. There she was introduced to “psychodynamic therapy” which is a deeper treatment approach. Throughout her career she has  continued to get training in this area through seminars and ongoing case consultation. In addition, she attended Newport Psychoanalytic Institute, a post-graduate institute where she received a certificate in “Psychodynamic Psychotherapy”

Morag Webb attributes much of her success as a therapist to her personal experience as a wife and mother. She has been married to her husband, Michael Webb, since 1989 and they have two daughters. She understands the challenges of parenting and balancing career and family. In her spare time she enjoys running, reading, and time with friends and family.
