Sara Murphy, MC, (RP) Registered Psychotherapist

Personal Statement

In her book The Gifts of Imperfection, Bréné Brown says that “owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do”. It is my privilege as a Psychotherapist to provide space and support as individuals dive into the stories of their lives and do the hard work of healing. Trained in EMDR, I’m grateful to be able to provide an opportunity for individuals to release the emotional, mental, and physical blocks caused by trauma and other difficult life circumstances using this dynamic and evidence-based therapy.

I am committed to creating a safe environment and therapeutic relationship for my clients and strive to meet you where you are at with an approach that best suits your needs. My therapeutic technique draws not only on EMDR but also incorporates mindfulness-based, internal-family systems, DBT, neurobiological, and attachment-based therapies.
