Ronald D. Morgan, Ed.D.


At an age when most have retired to a life of leisure, Dr. Ronald Morgan continues his life-long effort to help those with personal and behavior problems. After more than 25 years as a psychologist in correctional facilities and 27 years in private practice, Dr. Morgan established the Wildomar Counseling Center in 2015 and continues to see patients five days a week and often far into the night.

Dr. Morgan feels this dedication and desire to help those with problems was triggered by his father, who was a minister. After growing up in Kansas, Dr. Morgan earned his B.S. Degree from Sterling College, followed by a Master’s Degree from the University of Missouri at Kansas City.

After working as a correctional counselor at a Community Treatment Center in Kansas City, and a nineteen-month stint in the U.S. Army, he became a caseworker at the U.S. Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. This experience inspired him to work with inmates in the criminal justice system and he decided to become a psychologist. He returned to school and earned an Ed.S. Degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder, followed by an Ed.D. degree.

His work in the corrections system continued in 1971 at the Federal Youth Center in Englewood, Colorado, where he provided case work for about 80 incarcerated youths.

Dr. Morgan’s career brought him to California in 1974 where he became Unit Manager and assisted in opening the Federal Correctional Institution in Pleasanton. He later helped provide mental health services for Community Mental Health in South Lake Tahoe.  He completed his fellowship by working at Orange County Juvenile Court Evaluation and Guidance Unit and Orangewood Children’s Home. He was a Psychologist at Heman G. Stark Youth Training Center in Chino where he conducted a study on “Child Abuse and Subsequent Involvement in Violent vs. Nonviolent Offenses”. He has also served as a criminal justice consultant for defense attorneys and provided alternate sentencing reports for consideration by state and federal courts.

He opened a private practice in Corona in 1991, providing psychotherapy. Dr. Morgan has also served as Mental Health Program Supervisor for the California Department of Corrections and served as Senior Psychologist, Supervisor, supervising a staff of Psychologists and Psychiatric Social Workers providing direct services to individuals on parole.

At age 72, Dr. Morgan has no intention of slowing down. “My main mission is to help people feel better,” he explains. “Most of the people I see are in some sort of distress and I try to help them be happier.” He works with patients who have problems with anxiety, anger management, depression and other problems, including sex offenders and victims of sexual abuse.
