Dr. Agatha Murray

Registered Psychologist

Edmonton, Alberta

Hello and welcome! I'm Agatha Murray (pronouns: she, her) and I'm a clinical/counselling psychologist, registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists since 2002. I have a Master's degree in counselling psychology from the University of Calgary and a PhD in counselling psychology from the University of Alberta. In addition to my private practice which I started in 2016, I have worked in a university counselling centre and various medical/psychiatric departments within Alberta Health Services. I am on staff with the Psychosocial Oncology department of the Cross Cancer Institute (if you're a patient of mine there, or are eligible for services in the department, please call 780-643-4304).

I have extensive training and experience in helping people with a variety of mental health concerns and personal difficulties. I use evidence-based treatment - for example, CBT for depression and anxiety disorders, and EMDR or prolonged exposure for post-traumatic stress disorder. Evidence-based practice provides confidence that the therapeutic approach is based on research, rather than fads or untested ideas. 

Psychotherapy research has shown that a good connection or "fit" with the therapist is extremely important. To this end, I approach all clients with openness, integrity, respect, and compassion, and I strive for a collaborative style of therapy. I collect client feedback on a regular basis and use this feedback to help guide my practice.

I'm excited to meet with people to help them manage problems and overcome challenges. New clients are offered a free 15-m‚Äčinute initial phone consultation to learn more about how I work, see if we would be a good fit, and ask any questions.
