I am licensed in Idaho with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and have completed my certification training for Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR).
One of the most important things to me when I work with my clients is to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.
Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Gabrielle McMurphy. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
She's helped me more than any other therapist/counselor with coming to terms with and reframing my bad habits. She recognized the shame I was internalizing that I didn't even realize I had and recognized that learning self-compassion would help me. She's able to see root causes of my struggles that I couldn't see by myself, and she pointed out how my need for instant gratification/a quick and easy fix was causing me to constantly give up an strategy as soon as it wasn't working as well as I wanted and how I'd never get to where I want to be that way. Overall, she's very insightful, and she's good at explaining things. With other therapists, when I expressed my feelings of discouragement, how I didn't see how it made sense to think I even could succeed given how many times I'd already failed, they'd try to be encouraging, but didn't give any useful insights into WHY I kept failing or what to do differently. Gabby did, and that's given me real hope again.

Easy to trust, provided useful prompts to look for solutions customized to you, and shared a lot of information that helped me with my relationship with ADHD.

In only a short amount of time in having her as a therapist, Gabrielle has already shown a willingness to shift and move as I need her to in order to feel personally affirmed and encouraged. It feels like she listens and responds in a way that pays respect to the individual and doesn’t have a list of pre-loaded responses regardless of who she’s speaking to. She’s been a big help so far.

I can only share my immediate impressions of Gabrielle as she and I have only met once, so far. She struck me as young, engaged, interested, approachable, non judgmental, modern in her thinking, and someone who is genuinely interested in engaging with me on my journey towards better mental health. She exceeded my expectations and has used the journal in a really helpful way too. This is a new approach to me, but I'm interested and want to continue : )

Gabrielle McMurphy has been astoundingly helpful to me and helped me improve my mindset and situation in a short period of time. She brings relevant concepts and topics to the table to discuss and considers your concerns and situation seriously and carefully. Could not be happier with my therapist.
