Meet Morgen Villegas (she/her)

I believe everyone is capable of healing-- especially YOU!


I am an EMDR Certified therapist specializing in helping adults in AZ, CA, CO and FL to find ways to heal from anxiety or trauma stemming from parenting, family of origin and work burnout/stress.  

Reasons to start therapy with me:    

You have a strained relationship with your parents. 

You are a parent and want to break the cycle of trauma.

You grapple with perfectionism and question "am I good enough?" 

You are worried about burnout or a toxic work culture. 

I bring insight and understanding to these challenges because of own healing journey. I have also worked for more than a decade as a mental health professional.

The way I do therapy might be different than what you have experienced before. EMDR is a holistic/somatic therapy that supports the integration of mind and body, focuses less on verbal processing and emphasizes how trauma is stored in the body.

I also work to incorporate "parts work" and use an IFS (Internal Family Systems) informed lens.  IFS is like becoming friends with the various versions of yourself. It's about understanding your own cast of characters and helping them get along.  Here is a funny intro to what "parts" might look like. 

In person appointments available at my Boulder and Lakewood office locations.

Telehealth appointments available if you reside in Arizona, California, Colorado and Florida.

Who Do I Work With?

I specialize in working with anxious/stressed out adults (mostly Gen Xers/Millennials) who have strained or distant relationships with their parents, as well as high-achieving professionals who struggle with perfectionism/shame and are impacted by a toxic work culture.

My approach to therapy is grounded in integrity and compassion, and I utilize treatment tools (such as EMDR and an IFS informed lens) to support trauma release and reconnection to joy. I believe that everyone is capable of healing.

Vida Idílica

I landed on my business name, Vida Idílica (in Spanish it means Idyllic Life), because it honors and embodies why I decided to become a therapist. I love to support people in reaching their goals and finding what it means to trust their wisdom and intuition.  Everyone has the innate capability of finding and creating their own Vida Idílica.
