About me…

Who is Tom Murray? I’ll Try to keep it short.

Selecting and hiring a professional with whom you can open up and share intimate parts of your life–sex and relationships–is a big deal. I get it! So, if you’ve not already, take that deep breath. That’s it. Here, you can learn more about me and decide whether my style, approach and philosophy is right for you.

 “I get to the point so that you can get on with your life!”

— Dr. Tom Murray

Approach & Philosophy

Clients tell me that I bring a zen quality to much of my work and that I have an uncanny sense of understanding people, their emotions and motives. I balance this with a straight-forward, no beating-around-the-bush approach.

People, like you, come to me because they desire something different in their lives; they need things to change. Perhaps you’ve seen other therapists and have decided to shake things up a little so that you can achieve progress.

I support you to make that difference happen. More, I’m like a coach for elite athletes who pushes clients towards their potential and get results. If I’m hired for your relationship, then I don’t hold back. I aim to make your minutes with me be impactful. I’m TEAM-YOU all the way!

My life experiences and extensive training have culminated into an approach influenced by Buddhist psychology, the Work of Byron Katie; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Gottman Method Couples Therapy. The latter of which is an empirically informed approach to heal relationships. Ultimately, I seek to personalize an approach that fits with your idea of how change could happen in your life.
