My Approach to Helping

I am a psychoanalyst, graduate of the Training and Research Institute of Self Psychology, an EMDR practitioner, and a sandplay therapist trained through the Sandplay Therapists of America, which has a Jungian foundation.

My experience with children and families as a consultant for high schools, elementary schools, preschools and clinics has shaped my ability to work intuitively and spontaneously in a wide variety of circumstances. My experience as a professional artist and my meditation practice also greatly inform my work.

My partner, William Murray, PhD, and I have formed Keene Murray Therapy and have an office across from Prospect Park in Brooklyn. We also work long distance on the phone and Skype. Besides our individual work, we offer workshops, CDs and dual-therapist couples therapy.

Our work at Keene Murray Therapy is:

shaped both by an immersion in a variety of psychological approaches and an extensive background in creative arts.

We recognize that our clients are the only ones who can truly tell their story.
Our function is to help clients identify and achieve their goals.

We believe that most problems are simply former solutions that no longer work.
We help clients discover more adaptive means to meet life's challenges.

We value the interpersonal quality of a therapeutic relationship that acknowledges the effects and influences that both client and therapist contribute.

Experience has shown us that significant change has its roots in the multi-layered interconnectedness of a person's inner life. We accompany clients as they explore and learn to navigate this strange and exciting territory.
