About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Florida and I have worked in the field providing client focused therapy to clients of all ages and stages in life. I am a graduate of Nova Southeastern University and I came to the field because I enjoy hearing stories, and the opportunity to help others create new life stories. My goal is always to offer a safe space to process and work through the various challenges that life presents. In that safe space, it is my sincere honor to listen to your needs and concerns and partner with you to create a plan to help you meet those challenges as they come, judgement free. I also work with couples and families, helping to positively change relational and communication patterns. I also enjoy working with families with members living with Alzheimer's disease, or other Dementias, Cancer and other chronic illnesses, to help them navigate the anxiety and to prepare for the journey these illness' can take them on. Whatever side of this experience you find yourself on, I would like to be there to help.

Thus far my experience with BetterHelp has been amazing. I tried the traditional methods and encountered numerous issues. Not only is BetterHelp easy to use, but Dr.Murray is amazing and listens to my needs.

Therapy with Dr. Murray has changed my life. In my darkest hours she was able to help my find my way out of the debilitating anxiety I had been experiencing for a long while. I know I will likely always struggle with anxiety, but with the help of Dr. Murray I have found ways to better understand my triggers, my anxiety as a whole, and ways to cope with negative thoughts that may come into my head. I can’t say enough good things, and I don’t have the right words to best explain how thankful I am for Dr. Murray’s calming presence and beautiful words of encouragement and praise. She truly makes me feel heard.

Dr. Murray is a great therapist and person. She genuinely care and means well. I appreciate having her as my therapist and would recommend her services to anyone who's in need of personal therapy. When I met her I was in a total mental fog as to how to proceed forward after a traumatic assault and she held my hand so to speak leading me through. In just two sessions I am seeing the trees in a dark forest.. for that I Thank God and her for her insight and professionalism.
