Meet the Team

Barrón Morse Counseling, PLLC (BMC) was founded by Scott and Cece and are joined by clinicians, Stacy and Michael, both master level clinicians.  The Barrón Morse team is unique in that they have made the thoughtful decision to join forces in working together in their commitment to clients, the social work profession, and the on-going development of BMC as a strong mental health agency.


While each team member has a unique counseling style and may use a variety of modalities, we all hold to the same vision and philosophy of therapy and treatment and share a strong sense of compassion, creativity, and humor.  All team members specialize in the treatment of complex trauma and our work is guided by current developments in neuroscience and research .
