Dr. Agatha Murray

Registered Psychologist

Edmonton, Alberta

Current pandemic considerations and appointment availability:

Telepsychology services (secure video and phone sessions) continue to be available and give you the greatest choice of appointment times. In-person appointments are also available and still require masks and health screening. These measures are being maintained to help protect the vulnerable among us.

My available appointments are typically between 9 am and 4 pm on weekdays. Later afternoon (4 or 5 pm) and Saturday appointments are available on a limited basis. Please feel free to contact me for details.

Are you looking for a caring and experienced therapist in Edmonton? 

My therapeutic style is rooted in empathy, compassion, and trauma-informed, evidence-based practice. I use a person-centred approach enhanced by various techniques such as CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy), EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy.

I welcome individuals aged 25+ (of all races, religions, genders, and sexual orientations) who are looking for help with:

  • chronic stress, challenging life situations
  • anxiety, chronic worry, panic attacks, and phobias
  • insomnia (trouble falling or staying asleep)
  • difficult or toxic relationships with family members
  • depression, including post-partum depression as well as other perinatal mood and anxiety disorders
  • difficulties following traumatic events such as PTSD/post-traumatic stress disorder
  • a history of childhood emotional neglect
  • binge eating, including bulimia and binge eating disorder (currently not accepting clients with anorexia)
  • OCD/obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • body-focused repetitive behaviours (BFRBs) such as skin picking and hair pulling
  • grief following a loved one's death or being diagnosed with a serious illness
  • breakups, separation, divorce, blended family adjustment
  • mid-life and "sandwich generation" issues 
  • life stage transitions such as new parenthood, "empty nest" or retirement
  • various other concerns - please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Please note that I do not provide: couples' or family counselling, formal psychological assessments (such as fitness-to-work or ADHD testing), or services for work-related psychological injuries (WCB) or cases with legal/court involvement.

Psychologists' practice guidelines recommend avoiding potential dual relationships and conflicts of interest with clients. Because of my family's connection with Strathcona high school, I'm not able to see teachers or staff from that school. Similarly, I cannot see the partner/family member of a current or recent client. I'd be happy to provide referrals to trusted colleagues in any of the above circumstances.

Please note that for video or phone services, as per the College of Alberta Psychologists, the client must be physically located in the province of Alberta at the time of the appointment.
