What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

Clients who choose me for their relationship consultation choose me to be an advocate for their relationship. Therefore, I'm neither partner's individual advocate. I must be free to provide direct feedback that's straight to the point, no beating around the bush, and, yes, even the occasional karate-chop-to-the-throat. In other words, think of me as a coach to elite athletes. My success depends on your success. You're here to make the most out of our time together. You want to achieve greatness, and I want to help you get there. Consequently, I provide you direct feedback, in real time, for you to correct course and employ new, more effective strategies.

For 20+ years, Murray has worked with everyday folks to embrace their weirdness, shed labels and shame, lean into anxiety, and build better and stronger relationships. Murray’s doctorate is in marriage and family counseling from the University of Florida. Clinically, he combines a pull-no-punches, no-beating-around-the-bush style.
