About me

Hello and Welcome!

Congratulations on taking action! My name is Tammy Murphy. I am a Licensed Psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience! I currently have the pleasure of working with motivated clients ALL OVER California through my teletherapy practice. Since I transitioned to online therapy several years ago, I have been amazed at how effective this new platform can be! I am pleased to conclude that my clients love it too! People enjoy the convenience of having their sessions in the comfort of their own homes (with their beloved pets, a good cup of coffee, and their favorite cozy chair)! Clients also appreciate sessions on the go through the use of their mobile phones! It’s like taking time out in the middle of a busy day to reflect and reset. Dealing with anxiety, depression, and stress can be overwhelming. Therapy provides the support necessary for people to get on with the business of life so they can re-focus on what really matters!

Throughout my career, I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, county agencies, nonprofits, school districts, and even wilderness/adventure-based therapies. I have loved them all! My therapeutic approach is compassionate, non-judgmental, and engaging! I utilize an array of evidence-based practices along with humor! I believe it is the brightest and bravest among us who know when it's time to reach out. I also believe that most of us have a sense of what we need to do differently to improve our lives. The real question is what gets in the way of doing it? Together we can explore barriers, learn new skills, and take small but necessary steps toward reaching your life goals. After all, the most important investment you will ever make is in YOU!

I look forward to working with you!

I think I have changed as a person and know myself better thanks to the awesome support I get from Tammy. With her guidance, I have created new habits that are helping me overcome my anxiety and depression. She listens to my problems and shows genuine care to help me overcome them. She is awesome at remembering conversations we have and it means a lot to know that she is giving me her undivided attention. She is very professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. I really needed someone to make me accountable and I feel she is the right person for that. Every week, I look forward to working with her to keep improving. I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have her as my counselor.

Thanks for everything Tammy!

Tammy is amazing! She’s so patient, kind, and a great listener. The kind of person you feel you could share everything with and know she won’t judge you. So thankful I’m able to work with her!
