We are truly blessed to have a successful business that we have built from the ground up. As a testament to the value we bring to the many lives we touch, we have received testimonials from many of our wonderful clients and colleagues.
We thank you all!
As a former client of Self Expressions, my experience working with Renee Morgan was one of sincere caring and professionalism. Her feedback and sensitivity, during our sessions, allowed me the freedom to discuss issues regardless of its content. Her input and guidance enabled a smooth transition from once a week meetings up to the time of discharge. I would highly recommend "Self Expressions" for anyone seeking a truly supportive, compassionate, counseling experience. A Happy Client
Working with Renee Morgan has absolutely changed my life! Her coaching, guidance and support helped me to develop and to grow and my life is better than it's ever been. Not a day passes where I don't reflect on something she said or that we discussed. Additionally, Renee is very personable, responsible and kind. I highly recommend her! Karen
Several years ago I was faced with severe depression and anxiety. After quite a few sessions with some not so nice or professional therapists, I happened upon Self Expressions. I found myself in the basement of someone’s house, sitting on a love seat and staring into the eyes of a not so nice cat and thought, ‘Oh my goodness my insurance company must be kidding’. Shortly, a very perky woman with the biggest smile and the most sympathetic eyes came out and said, “Hi there”. Little did I know she was about to become my rock and my hero.
Dawn Marple-Gise has been my therapist for several years now. She has saved my life many times in many ways. It never ceases to amaze me that every week she remembers everything we talked about. There are times that she remembers things I don’t. From the very beginning, she helped me find the right doctor for medication, good support group help and made other connections to move me along the path to recovery. She is a truly amazing and comforting woman. Thanks to her I am a much healthier and more secure person than I was the day that I wandered into the practice.
The women at Self Expressions are second to none. The practice is now in Frazier in a lovely office with big comfy furniture. There is no hissing cat, but every week, the perky woman with the big smile and the sympathetic eyes comes and says, “Hi there” and it’s just like a warm fuzzy hug. A Happy Client
My experience with Self Expressions is one that I am so deeply grateful for. About 10 years ago, after grieving the loss of my parents and best friend who passed within 8 months of one another I was deeply entrenched in grief. I called the office and spoke with Dawn and it was the best phone call I ever made. She gently guided me through the process. There were sexual abuse issues as well, and we worked through them. My goal has been to work through both journeys, abuse and grief and love the woman I became on the other side. As Dawn held my hand, I achieved that goal. Having been to many therapists in my life, Self Expressions has been the one practice that I refer everyone who comes to me asking for a good therapist. I don’t hesitate to recommend Self Expressions – a practice that gently supports you on the road of emotional relief and then back onto the highway of life. D.W.
During a trying time in my life, it was a blessing to me that I was referred to Self Expressions for help. With a caring approach, Dawn Marple-Gise helped me find my inner strength once again. Today, I feel “good as new” and am so pleased with the help and support I received. Thank you! Dave
Self Expressions helped make me the person I am today through their encouragement and motivation. I went through 2 major life events with Renee and Dawn. What could be worse than being diagnosed with breast cancer and then having your husband of 27 years leave you? I was down and out, but Renee and Dawn wouldn’t allow me to give up. Through their excellent guidance and support, I am a much stronger person today. Fortunately I survived the breast cancer and have been able to move on and engage in a new relationship and another life and am a very happy, healthy person today.
I cannot thank Renee and Dawn enough. They are both warm and understanding people who are able to pull out the best in you. I highly recommend either one of them…they were my counselors, but now are my friends! A great big Thank You! M.L.
I’ve been coming to Self Expressions for 4 years! I’ve recommended Dawn to friends and family. My husband and I have come together and separately. In fact, he started coming first! Coming to Self Expressions, specifically to Dawn, has been both cathartic and life changing for me. My sessions are the most important things I do for myself. I can only give the highest praise and gratitude for the new lease on life! B.S.
The first time that I met Renee Morgan, I was 21, very depressed and in need of help. At that time, it was hard to imagine that I would actually ever feel better. Fourteen years later, I cannot envision what my life would be like today without her. She has helped me accept and deal with chronic depression and anxiety, shown me ways to cope with and face challenging life events, and encouraged me to be confident. Our sessions have always been productive and enlightening, and because of this, I have chosen to continue my visits as a means of staying well. Renee and her colleagues at Self Expressions are warm and caring, and they create an atmosphere that is relaxing to the patient. I wish that I could articulate the level of gratitude that I feel towards Renee because I truly believe that she is the reason why I am as strong as I am today. AR
As a colleague of Renee and Dawn for the past 10+ years, and a member with them in Peer Supervision, I can sincerely attest to their professionalism, integrity and warm care they provide for other clients. Great Therapists and wonderful human beings.

It is our pleasure to speak about Renee and Dawn. These remarkable therapists have, for many years, served as senior coaches-therapists at The Getting The Love You Want Workshops for Couples. In that capacity, they consistently help couples achieve breakthroughs in their lives, helping them shift out of hurt, frustration, grief and uncertainty to a clearer, more connected way of relating. It often feels as if we have found in them the Kobe Bryant and Michael Phelps of psychotherapy.

It has been my pleasure to be associated with Renee Morgan and Dawn Marple-Gise of Self Expressions from the inception of their practice in the 1990’s. As an oncologist with patients in crisis, Self Expressions has always been available to help me and to help my patients. Whenever I refer a patient to Self Expressions, the patient always returns with positive reports about the quality of their visits and efficiency of the practice. Throughout the years, my patients have given the practice rave reviews and thank me for referring them for care. I feel I can recommend the practice without reservations for anyone with counseling needs. Ms. Morgan and Ms. Marple-Gise are always my first choice of referral for my patients in need.

In Family Practice, one is faced with many mental, as well as physical patient problems. My colleagues and I strongly believe that anxiety and depression need to be addressed, not only by a primary care provider (visits and sometimes medications), but also by a therapist or psychiatrist. For nearly 10 years, I have referred numerous patients to Self Expressions - Renee Morgan and Dawn Marple-Gise. These two highly professional and approachable women have delivered superb psychological treatment for my patients. Their approach has succeeded in improving the quality of patients’ lives and has taught them skills to make for happier and more stable lives. When my patients follow up with me after sessions with Renee or Dawn, I see differences in their affect, mannerism and mood. There has never been a problem that I thought that this practice could not handle. They are diligent in following up with me (if the patient permits) and are very familiar with the area’s psychiatrists and institutions, if a referral is necessary. I so very much admire and believe in these capable therapists – it’s a pleasure to throw praise their way
