My Approach to Helping

As a working woman, mother, and wife, I understand the difficulty in balancing work, life responsibilities, and stress while still valuing your personal interests and goals.

Sara Murphy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with more than 6 years of experience in the mental health field. She is passionate and driven about helping adults address their unique challenges, reach therapeutic personal goals, and live healthier and happier lives. Sara has a strong background in depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, stress management, ADHD, anger management, and major life transitions. Sara completed her Master's degree in Social Work at North Carolina State University and received her Bachelor's degree in Social Work at Appalachian State University. Sara utilizes multiple treatment approaches including mindfulness, wellness approach, strength-based (SBT) perspectives, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), solutions-focused therapy (SFT), stress management, and somatic-based interventions. We all go through hard times in life that challenge us. Sometimes we need a little guidance and support along the way. Sara is confident that she can help you on your journey to gain new perspectives, learn techniques, and utilize coping strategies to overcome personal obstacles. If you are ready to do the work, schedule an appointment with her today.
