About Kyle

Kyle Murray, MSW, LICSW, Psychotherapist

Hello and welcome. My name is Kyle Murray (she/her/hers) and I am a Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist at the Center for Counseling and Wellness.

I believe you are the expert on your life, and I know it takes courage and time to tell your story. I believe change, healing, and growth are possible through an authentic relationship with a supportive therapist. My goal is to create a warm, welcoming, non-judgmental and compassionate environment. I aim to bring an integrative, relational, collaborative, narrative and whole-person-care approach to clinical work. I also strive to bring an anti-oppressive, trauma-responsive, strengths-based, and ecological (person-in-environment) approach to my clinical work. My years of clinical experience have primarily focused on work with adults, providing individual and group therapy. I have special interest in: grief, loss, and life transitions, end of life care, poetry therapy, spirituality, mindfulness, and the connections between the body and emotions.
