Morgan Widerman, LCSW-C
Hi, I'm Morgan! I'm a queer, neurodivergent therapist with nearly ten years of experience providing mental health services to the Baltimore area. My primary specialties are trauma, complex trauma, Autism, and ADHD. I know first-hand how challenging and exhausting it can be to find a therapist who understands your unique brain and the way you perceive, process, and experience the world around you. I created Quirky Brain to be an inclusive practice specifically oriented towards neurodivergent individuals and the people who love them.
