Work and Consulting Experience

For more than twenty years, Dr. Morgan has mentored and coached people in transition; from relationships to jobs to completely reinventing themselves. He has worked with everyone from student-athletes, entertainers, persons recently released from prison, academic peers, and those who are transgender and non-binary. He is an expert at creating a space where you can show up and do your work.  

Dr. Morgan’s coaching/consulting expertise grew from his own life experience. Between earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a master’s degree in Sociology, and a Doctorate Degree in Education, he worked in the fitness industry and as a tour guide, eventually moving into the entertainment industry where he began writing and performing stand-up comedy, parlaying that into working with comedians, agents, and producers. 

Dr. Dan Morgan specializes in helping people find their voices, especially during times of transition. Whether you are starting a career or changing career paths, starting over after ending a relationship, going through a profound change in your health, or moving on after losing a loved one – whatever the transition may be, he will create a space for you to show up and do your work.
