About Heather Murphy, LPC-S

Psychotherapist, Board-Approved Supervisor, Owner of The Feelings Healers

Not accepting new clients at this time

Available for speaking engagements.

Each person has their own vital, meaningful life, and I join clients on this journey.

Using a warm, empathic approach coupled with a healthy and gentle dose of directness, I guide clients in working through the areas of their lives that keep them stuck in their suffering. I work with individuals, families, and groups to identify strengths and address issues in relationships so that they may be more fulfilling. I have experience treating a variety of issues and have helped people from all walks of life in a practical, life-changing manner.

What I do:

I specialize in treating eating disorders, body image, and self-esteem. I often incorporate creative exercises to help clients express themselves in healthy, appropriate ways. My work is influenced by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cogntive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy and Positive Psychology.

I’m also a board-approved supervisor for Licensed Professional Counselor Associates. I offer individual and group supervision. Learn more here.

Education & Training

I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Houston at Clear Lake and completed a graduate internship at the Houston Eating Disorders Center. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of St. Thomas, completing internships at Crisis Intervention of Houston and MD Anderson. I also studied many religions and spiritual practices. I started in the mental health field at The Menninger Clinic on the Eating Disorders Program.

I worked at the Houston Eating Disorders Center as a Primary Therapist, where I gained experience leading groups and being a part of an integrated treatment team. I was a part of Southwest Psychotherapy Associates for several years before branching out into private practice. I opened Murphy Counseling Group in 2016, which has transformed into The Feelings Healers.
