Thomas L Murray Jr., PhD
I get to the point so that you can get on with your life. You’ll get a straight-forward approach that accesses your HSP strengths. I combine those strengths with mindfulness-based principles, the Work of Byron Katie, and Eastern psychology to help you craft a life worth living. My primary niches are sex and couples therapy; two areas that affect many HSPs. My secondary niche includes artists and other creative types. This niche was developed after 10 years directing a counseling center at a major performing arts conservatory in the South. You can access my services in-office or through a HIPAA compliant video platform, which is available to anyone in NC and FL, only. Visit my website for additional details.
Jessica Spence, MC, LPCS
My clients are the experts on themselves– I just guide, teach, and support along the way. I work hard to make sure my office is a safe place of non-judgment where people can take risks, be vulnerable, and learn about themselves. I am calm, grounded, attentive, open-minded, caring, and knowledgeable. I know when to give my clients a supportive nudge toward change and when to listen with empathy. Clients appreciate that I am gentle, yet firm, with challenging them.
I work well with people who are interested in exploring their depression, anxiety, ADHD, high sensitivity, body positivity, trauma, relationship stress, and life adjustments/transitions. I’m affirming of people who traditionally may feel like outsiders: i.e., LGBTQI community, gay/lesbian families, atheists, and those with strong political values.
I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, secular substance abuse treatment, and transgender health. I am also trained in creative therapy modalities. I am a HSP and parent to a highly sensitive child.
