Dr. Murphy specializes in Counseling, Psychological Evaluations & Biofeedback. See below for common conditions treated.

Dr. Murphy provides a warm and empathic space to help you cope with what you’re going through.

Dr. Murphy works with clients (or their parents) directly who wish to be evaluated for learning issues and emotional conditions in children (ages 6+) and adults. This testing is often helpful for the development of accommodations (504/IEPs) used by your child’s school. It is also helpful for people who need evaluations to diagnose symptoms in order to accurately identify diagnoses and develop appropriate treatment plans. Dr Murphy works with clients (or their parents) directly who wish to evaluate them and also takes referrals directly from pediatricians or therapists who feel their clients would benefit from a formal psychological evaluation to help inform their treatment plan.

Used as a self regulation tool, Dr. Murphy teaches kids (ages 6+) and adults how to use biofeedback to cope with daily stresses and improved focus / attention.  Learn more about biofeedback below.

Common Conditions Treated

EF coaching often focuses on helping students prepare for success in high school & college.

The Body & Mind Are Connected

Many of Dr. Murphy’s treatments involve using Biofeedback.  Essentially, Biofeedback is listening to the patients vitals and reactions when presented with certain stimuli.  By using Biofeedback, the treatment plan can evolve and be customized based on what the body is communicating.
