"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." (Psalms 30:5)
Morning Light Counseling, the private practice of Carrie M. Wrigley, LCSW, is located at 9055 South 1300 East, Sandy, Utah. Carrie's twenty-five-plus years as a counselor have equipped her to serve a wide variety of clients with a large range of challenges, including depression, anxiety, and addiction. She counsels adults, teens, and children, male and female; and offers family counseling designed to increase mutual understanding and unity within the family.
Carrie also provides marriage counseling, counseling couples through communication issues, personality conflicts, infidelity and sexual addiction issues, parenting concerns, and other challenges.
Appointments can be set by phone or email contact, or directly through Morning Light Counseling's Online Appointment Scheduler. This resource allows clients to create, review, reschedule, or cancel their own appointments – day and night, wherever they have internet access. Skype or phone sessions are available to clients living outside the area.
Carrie also operates Counseling Library, an online resource library featuring articles, books, handouts, and other resources on a wide range of topics. This sister site contains much more information about the kinds of approaches Carrie takes in therapy, and provides resources for Carrie's clients to help themselves between sessions. The Library is also open to the public.
Carrie's core specialty is in helping people clients heal from depression and other emotional challenges. This is facilitated by her use of an integrative wellness model of counseling she calls "The Diamond." This approach blends the benefits of cognitive therapy, behavior modification, relationship counseling, and spiritual interventions designed to help the client regain wholeness and wellbeing – not simply to manage or focus on external symptoms.
To learn more about the Diamond, a good introduction is a talk Carrie recorded for BYU Education Week in 2005, which has aired many times on television and radio, and is now part of Education's Week's official channel on You-Tube. The transcript and other resources related to the talk can be found here.
While the talk primarily addresses depression, the principles and processes it discusses can be also applied to the healing process for anxiety, abuse, and many other challenges. Clients wishing to meet with Carrie can be well-prepared by watching this talk and applying its insights to their own experience. It can also be a useful resource for others seeking to help themselves and others understand and work through various emotional challenges.
Morning Light Counseling is a resource designed to extend light and hope in the midst of stormy, perilous times. While much is amiss in the world, there is much to celebrate, much to rejoice in. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." (Psalms 30:5)
