Sharon Murphy, LMFT

With more than 20 years experience in the profession of psychotherapy, I have focused almost exclusively on sexual issues. I have seen individuals and couples struggling with various aspects of their lives related to sexual values, beliefs and behaviors. Oftentimes it is much easier to open up about these issues with a non-judgmental licensed clinician.

Whether you are an individual seeking more fulfillment in your life or a couple wanting to strengthen or repair your relationship, I am here to listen and offer guidance. Many underlying factors can lead to marital issues. Where there has been pornography addiction or affairs I can help you rebuild the trust that was lost. Many couples’ relationships grow and deepen with therapy. I hope that I can help you move forward with your relationship and with your life.

In addition, I have had extensive training and experiences working with individuals whose sexual behaviors have resulted in their coming into contact with the criminal justice system. The Center for Change is a certified program with the CASOMB.
