About Me

Hello,
My name is Jennifer Murphy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Pennsylvania. I have worked in the mental health and substance abuse field for over 20 years, and my expertise is related to working with individuals that experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, relational conflict, etc. I am trauma-informed and DBT certified. I have a particular love for working with first responders and the military as I was a former U.S. soldier.

I lean on cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy as my strong points. I love helping clients challenge their thought distortions and make behavioral changes that are needed to boost their overall chance for success. Additionally, the use of DBT allows me to teach clients distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills that greatly enhance their ability to recover.

In terms of my work with couples, I offer a 10-week program that goes over a specific set of skills in each session. I teach clients about the common pitfalls in relationships and how they can improve their communication style.

One of my clients recently referred to me as her Happiness Facilitator. My goal as a therapist is to teach you the skills you will need to begin living the life you truly want.

I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone. She is extremely professional and understanding. I’ve never felt so heard and understood. Jennifer really provides real time response and analysis all while being so personable and professional. Hands down the best therapy sessions I have ever had.

Written by E.L. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Jennifer for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and grief

I had my first counseling session with Jennifer recently and I think she is great. I had a counselor through here, who wasn't so good and not punctual. In contrast, Jennifer was on time and very thoughtful and professional.
