About Me

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my profile!

My name is Marie Murphy, and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Tennessee. Many of my clients have struggled with depression, anxiety, family and parenting difficulties, self-esteem issues, sexual problems, anger management, PTSD, trauma, and abuse recovery. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling.

I am a compassionate person who uses a person-centered, solution-focused approach to helping others. I strive to help people learn to help themselves through empowerment, increased awareness of their strengths, and confidence/skill-building to face the often difficult changes they want to make in order to lead a more contented life. Using a direct, client-focused style in counseling, I utilize components of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), interpersonal, and solution-focused brief therapies quite often, but tailor each approach to the specific needs of each client.

It takes courage to make changes. If you are ready to take that first step in leading a happier life, please consider me as your helper in sorting out the emotional difficulties, developing positive strategies to cope, and overcome the obstacles you've been facing. I am here to support you on your journey.

I look forward to working with you.

She has been all I could ask for! I was a little nervous about using this website for a counseling service, but she has made it so delightful, and I genuinely enjoy talking to her and getting her helpful feedback. 5 out of 5

Marie is a wonderful and caring counselor. She gives knowledge based advice on how to handle situations. It is far more beneficial than just talking to a friend.

Marie is a wonderful counselor. Her replies are always very thought out, and she asked insightful questions to really get me to think about what I'm going though. She replies in a timely manner, and really is very good at communicating with you. I am very thankful that I got her as my counselor.

Marie was an excellent counselor who provided what felt like non-judgmental and very open space to express and work through my issues. She approached me at my level and didn't just dictate. Just a few days of speaking to her was so helpful. She seemed so genuinely interested in me and helping me.

In life battles sometimes you become weak and you need a shoulder to help you escape and regroup, and Marie was my shoulder.

She provided the route to escape a battle that I was struggling with and the guidance to develop a plan of attack. She helped me recognize new approaches and courage to validate what I had already done.
