Candice Moran, Psy.D.
I earned my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Chicago, IL. I completed my Doctoral Internship at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill working in the counseling center and the LGBTQ+ Center. For the past 9 years, I have been working for the past 9 years at the University of Central Missouri providing individual, couples, and group therapy to UCM students, and providing campus and community-wide consultation and training on LGBTQIA+ individuals, allyship, and creating inclusive environments as the coordinator of the Safe Zone program.
As a queer, nonbinary therapist, my areas of clinical interest include sexuality, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, intersecting identities, social justice, neurodivergence, LGBTQIA+ identities, identity development and transitions (e.g. transition to parenthood), relationship concerns, as well as consultation and outreach. My clinical practice is grounded in an integrative theoretical framework informed by intersectional feminist therapy, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), relational-cultural theory (RCT), and systems theories. I work from trauma-informed, strengths-based, neuroaffirmative perspectives, and am committed to anti-racist, anti-oppresive, and decolonizing practices.
In my free time you’ll often find me doing an art/craft project, a puzzle, watching a moving, making Lego creations, or going on an adventure with my twin kiddos and my partner. I also enjoy audiobooks and true crime podcasts. I have a chiweenie named Columbo and 2 reclusive cats.
