About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 40 years’ experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. I have experience treating: marital issues, depression, mood swings, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, LGBTQ+ issues, substance abuse, and addiction problems.
Treatment Philosophy: I promise to meet you where you are at and to provide a safe space for you to be yourself. I want you to know that you will never be judged by me. My ultimate goal is to help you to become the best version of you possible. After all, this life isn’t a dress rehearsal; this is your one and only chance to live your life as you want it to be. Please don’t waste this opportunity. Oh, by the way… did I mention that I spent the last 3 years living as a Nomad exploring our great country in a Van?
I look forward to joining you on your journey of personal growth and enlightenment; I sincerely believe we can all live in peace and joy today.
How may I help you?

I have been very impressed with Tim. He has such a nice manner, is relatable, and has years of experience under his belt. I have learned so much from him which I can apply in my life on a daily basis. I am very happy I reached out to Betterhelp and extremely grateful to have been paired with Time.

After five weeks of working with Tim I think I'm a lot calmer, and I can focus on myself better. He's very nice, and reassuring, and makes me feel safe all the time, even when I'm struggling with words, or when I'm saying nonsensical things. He is extremely patient and kind, and waits for me to open up.

Tim McMurphy is extremely experienced, compassionate, and helpful. I've been to multiple therapists and I'd have to say that I can see and feel the improvements after each session in a meaningful way with him. I feel grateful to have come across such an insightful and caring person that matches me, it really makes all the difference.
