About Natalie Murry
Natalie Murry, M.S. is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT #115949) with more than a decade of clinical experience. Natalie has received training in the use of EMDR therapy from the Institute for Creative Mindfulness and she uses this powerful treatment modality to help clients achieve their mental health goals. Natalie holds a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mount Saint Mary’s University and a bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal/Organization Communication Studies from California State University—Long Beach.
Over the past ten years, Natalie has gained extensive clinical experience working in various public mental health settings. She has worked with diverse populations and gained experience in treating depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, substance use/abuse disorders, as well as other chronic mental health conditions. As a clinician, Natalie takes pride in her ability to connect with others, in providing superior trauma-informed care, and in listening to and validating her clients without judgment.
Natalie is a firm believer that trauma is stored in the body, even though at times the mind may not consciously recall such wounds. Using the tools and techniques of EMDR therapy, Natalie aims to create a safe space in counseling to help her clients explore these stored body sensations with compassion and warmth. Next, she helps her clients to reprocess and heal the wounds of the past so that they can cultivate new, healthier ways to thrive in the world.
Natalie is an advocate for BIPOC and a LGBTQ+ ally. She is culturally sensitive to the various intersectionalities one faces when navigating society and she welcomes clients to share their experiences in therapy.
Natalie receives clinical supervision from Julia Tucker, LCSW and EMDR consultation from Heidi Roselle, LPCC, PMH-C.
