Dr. Agatha Murray

Registered Psychologist

Edmonton, Alberta

Offering counselling by secure video, phone, or in-person (health screening and masking are required). During the pandemic, online appointments are the default. In-person appointments are offered upon request, for specific reasons only.

In general, most of my available appointments are between 9 am and 3 pm on weekdays, and other times may be available with a longer wait time. Following the initial phone consultation, new clients are typically scheduled an appointment within 2 weeks but may occasionally be placed on a wait list of 1 to 2 months.

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

My therapeutic style is based in empathy, respect for diversity, and evidence-based practice. I use CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy), EMDR, solution-focused therapy, emotional regulation, mindfulness, and other techniques.

I welcome individuals aged 18+ (of all races, religions, genders, and sexual orientations) who are experiencing:

  • difficulties coping with any aspect of the pandemic - including needle phobia for the COVID vaccine
  • anxiety, chronic worry, panic attacks
  • stress, insomnia
  • difficult or toxic relationships with family members
  • depression (including post-partum mood and anxiety disorders)
  • difficulties following traumatic events such as PTSD/post-traumatic stress disorder
  • eating disorders (may require coordination with your physician)
  • OCD/obsessive-compulsive disorder (including post-partum OCD)
  • 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 
  • difficulties with life stage transitions such as new parenthood or retirement
  • and various other concerns - please feel free to contact me with questions

Please note that currently, I do not provide: couples' counselling, formal psychological assessments (such as ADHD testing), or counselling for work-related injury (WCB) cases or those with any legal (court) involvement.

Psychologists' professional guidelines require avoiding potential dual relationships and conflicts of interest, therefore I'm unable to see teachers, staff, or students from Strathcona or Avalon schools because my children go to those schools. I also cannot see the partner/spouse or an immediate family member of a current or recent client.

Please be aware that as per guidelines from the College of Alberta Psychologists, for any virtual/online services, the client must be physically located in the province of Alberta at the time of the appointment (not simply be a resident).

My appointment availability is generally during the daytime on weekdays (Mon-Fri), along with a few late afternoon and Saturday spots - however, the demand for these spots is higher so they fill up fast and usually have a wait list. Please contact me below if you have questions about my current availability.

If you're ready to take the next step:

Please click here to book a free 15-minute initial phone consultation. I book these consultations only 2 weeks ahead, to ensure that people aren't kept waiting for a long time. If no time options appear in the booking calendar, it means that my schedule is currently full or I may not be accepting new clients at this time. Please check back again soon, as new time slots become available for 2 weeks ahead, cancellations sometimes come up, or I may add additional time.
