Malinda Castle/Murphy

 Licensed Mental Health Counselor

            I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with sixteen years of experience working in the Mental Health/Behavioral Health field. While being credentialed and specializing in mental health, I also hold an expertise in Family/Marriage Counseling, Criminal Thinking, and in Addictions Therapy. I am also a certified provider through OASAS to perform Impaired Driver Evaluations and treatment.

 

            The relationship between therapist and client is unique, collaborative, compassionate, and individualized. My hope for every individual, family, or couple is for them to gain empowerment through therapy to overcome any of life’s challenges and improve communication in relationships with self and/or others. This empowerment is evolved through the implementation of evidence based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy. Other therapeutic techniques such as Mindfulness may be implemented as ones individual treatment plan requires. I firmly believe one’s therapeutic experience should be as unique and individualized as one’s own thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Together we can improve overall quality of life. From crisis to mental health stabilization and/or maintenance, together we can improve overall quality of life.
