UOG Alumna Passes National Counseling Exam


University of Guam


University of Guam Alumna Morgan Angel is the first University of Guam graduate to take and pass the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination.

Angel, who received her undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of California Riverside in 2009, graduated three years later with a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from UOG. Her thesis—Juvenile Females and Conduct Problems on Guam—compared the rates of conduct problems in juvenile females to findings from studies completed outside of Guam and the Micronesian region.

Angel moved with her husband to Florida in 2013 and has since completed 1,700 post-graduate clinical hours. In February 2016, she became a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida, and not long after moved to San Diego, California. Currently Angel is working to become a licensed professional clinical counselor and licensed advanced alcohol and drug counselor in the state of California.

Angel credits the UOG and its M.S. Clinical Psychology degree program faculty for her success in completing her degree and in the field.

Angel credits UOG and her professors in the M.S. Clinical Psychology program for supporting her as she completed her degree and preparing her for success in the field.
