I am a counselor who is passionate about people. I have known I wanted to be counselor since about the age of 13. I have been a counselor for over 25 years, with much experience with couples, individuals, and teens. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, loss, with victims of abuse and violence as well as many other issues. My desire is to help you successfully walk through life’s difficulties and clarify your goals. My job is to work myself out of a job.  I want to give you the patience, support, and tools, so you will no longer need me. The counseling is yours, not mine to give you the ability to work toward YOUR goals, not mine. I strive to be non-judgmental, as you are the expert on your life. I provide a place for you to talk and just be yourself. William Murphy

At times, every person has difficulty adjusting to those changes. This often can result in anxiety, anger, and sadness. Whether someone is grieving the loss of a loved one, celebrating a new child, adjusting to a new career or school, or struggling with relationships; everyone may need just a little help working through life’s challenges.

Meredith is not accepting new clients at this time, but is still offering supervision.

Do you want to speak with someone without fear of judgment? Do you need to process thoughts or events in a safe place? If you are experiencing struggles in relationships, parenting, or even with yourself, I’m here to help. If you don’t feel like the best version of yourself, or your life isn’t going the way you would like, I’d love to work with you! More than likely, I want you to erase whatever negative idea you have about counseling from your mind. My job isn’t to give you advice, to be your friend or to have you lay on a couch and talk about your mom 😉

Have you ever wondered why you repeatedly exhibit the same unhealthy behavior? Why you find yourself in the same situation or feeling the same way? I have. These are good questions to explore in counseling. I think you must address the beliefs behind the behavior, the desires that fuel the behavior and emotions. It is my goal in counseling to help you examine the thoughts and attitudes that drive your actions and to help provide insight into the issues you are addressing in light of God’s Word.
