Licensed Therapist, MSW, LCSW


My approach to treating OCD is to build the therapeutic alliance, which means getting to know you first before jumping into the actual work. It's important to understand each member's lived experience, because OCD is subjective to each individual. Treatment will be collaborative every step of the way. I may be the expert in the therapy, but you're the expert in your OCD. Outside of work, I'm a collector of experiences. I'm down for a sporting event, opera, or Renaissance festival. I love doing things outdoors. I'm also part of three book clubs. A fun fact about me: I'm related to a U.S. president and a British queen.

Living with OCD is more challenging than the therapy itself.

Get to know Morgan Byler

Becoming a therapist was not a straight path. In college, I had several different majors and found it hard to settle on one. I knew I wanted a profession in which I would help individuals. While taking psychology classes, I was introduced to the concept of post-traumatic growth that I completely embraced. Post-traumatic growth involves taking your traumatic experiences and using them in a positive manner. My personal path has supported me tremendously in being able to connect and truly empathize with people. I've thoroughly enjoyed supporting individuals on their journeys toward becoming healthy.

OCD is a misunderstood diagnosis, and society diminishes the lived experiences of individuals living with OCD. The condition is not simply liking things to be orderly; it's a thought and behavior cycle that disrupts people's lives. I wanted to support misunderstood individuals and bring more awareness about OCD.

Therapy will be challenging, because I'll be asking you to face your fears. But living with OCD is more challenging than the actual therapy itself. I will never ask you to do anything that is illegal or against your morals. I will never ask you to do anything that I myself would not be willing to do. In order to get to the other side, you will have to go through it first. Something that you will hear a lot here at NOCD is that 'you have to behave your way through OCD.'

Sharing intrusive thoughts can be intimidating, which is completely normal. Everyone has internal dialogues and thoughts that can feel intense to share. Through building our relationship, I hope I'm able to show you that the therapeutic space is a judgment-free zone. Your thoughts don't define you as a person. Thoughts are simply thoughts, not actions. Talking about the thoughts you're having, especially those that are emotionally challenging, is how you can make the most progress on your healing journey.
