Kate Murphy, LMSW

Is worry, insecurity, impulsivity, or fatigue keeping you from what you are capable of in your personal life or career? Do you have the desire to connect with others on a deeper level yet feel like something is holding you back? The idea of change may be appealing one moment and then overwhelming the next. I get it…change is hard! Asking for help can be even harder.

By visiting this website you have made a strong 1st step. Therapy is a place for you to explore your history, make plans for change, learn techniques to deal with issues, and celebrate incremental successes with a non-judgmental, supportive person.

The most important thing you can do to get positive results from therapy is to find a therapist that you feel comfortable with. Call or email me to set up a phone conversation. I can answer your questions and discuss your reasons for seeking support so that you can decide if working together makes sense for you.

This is a second career for me. Having held leadership roles in the past, I intimately understand the pressures of the 24/7 work world and the stress it places on self and relationships. Together we will explore ways for you to live a more productive, balanced, and meaningful life.
