Dr. Agatha Murray

Registered Psychologist

Edmonton, Alberta

Current pandemic considerations and appointment availability:

Telepsychology services (video sessions) are encouraged and give you the greatest choice of appointment times. In-person appointments are available with masks and health screening. For personal health reasons, my preference is to meet in-person only with clients who have followed AHS Covid vaccination guidelines.

My available appointments are typically between 9 am and 3 pm on weekdays. Later afternoon (4 or 5 pm) and Saturday appointments are sometimes available or may have a waitlist. Please contact me for details.

Are you looking for a caring and experienced therapist in Edmonton? 

My therapeutic style is rooted in empathy, compassion, and trauma-informed, evidence-based practice. I use a person-centred approach enhanced by CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy), ART (accelerated resolution therapy), EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, and other techniques as appropriate.

I welcome individuals aged 25+ (of all races, religions, genders, and sexual orientations) who are looking for help with:

  • anxiety, chronic worry, panic attacks, or phobias
  • chronic stress
  • insomnia
  • difficult or toxic relationships with family members
  • depression, including post-partum depression as well as other perinatal mood and anxiety disorders
  • difficulties following traumatic events such as PTSD/post-traumatic stress disorder
  • a history of childhood emotional neglect
  • binge eating, including bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder (not accepting clients with anorexia at this time)
  • OCD/obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • body-focused repetitive behaviours such as skin picking and hair pulling
  • grief following a loved one's death or being diagnosed with a serious illness
  • breakups, separation, divorce, blended family adjustment
  • mid-life and "sandwich generation" issues 
  • life stage transitions such as new parenthood or retirement
  • various other concerns - please feel free to contact me with any questions

Please note that I do not provide: couples' or family counselling, formal psychological assessments (such as return-to-work or ADHD testing), or services for work-related psychological injuries (WCB) or cases with legal/court involvement.

Psychologists' standards of practice recommend avoiding potential dual relationships and conflicts of interest with clients. Because of my family's connection with Strathcona and Avalon schools, I'm not able to see teachers, staff, or students from those schools. I also cannot see the partner/spouse or an immediate family member of a current or recent client. I'd be happy to provide referrals to trusted colleagues in any of the above circumstances.

Please note that for any video or phone services, as per guidelines from the College of Alberta Psychologists, the client must be physically located in the province of Alberta at the time of the appointment.
