I’m Kelly Murray and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I specialize in treating adults and have been a therapist in the Portland community for over 17 years. I am licensed in both Oregon and Washington.

My expertise and interest include helping those struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, eating disorders, perinatal/postnatal issues, parenting, addictions and life transitions.  I utilize Psychodynamic psychotherapy, Depth Psychology, Sensorimotor (somatic) Psychotherapy and EMDR in my practice.
