Looking for a professional psychologist you can trust?
My name is Michael Murrell, Psy. D. and I am a clinical psychologist who has been the Director of Murrell Psychological Service since 1987.
I personally struggled with panic attacks and P.T.S.D. (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder). I sought professional mental health and have been symptom free since that time. I can teach you what I have learned personally so that you or your loved one can stop suffering from an anxiety disorder. Whether it is in the form of individual psychotherapy, family counseling or a need for a psychological evaluation, either myself, or one of the other psychologists in our office, can be of help to you.
I am a member of the American Psychological Association, the Missouri Psychological Association, the Society for Christian Psychologists and the American Legion. I am a Level III Certified E.M.D.R. (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapist who is also a psychologist in Southwest Missouri. I am a member of Schweitzer United Methodist Church where I have been a member since 1988. I was led to practice the profession of clinical psychologist because I felt that I could help those people, who were like myself, highly sensitive individuals, who felt overwhelmed by the demands of their environment. Many of my clients are not mentally ill but are in fact very sensitive people who feel they must adapt to a social environment that was not friendly or understanding of who them. For more information about my work with highly sensitive people, who make up most of my practice, I recommend a couple of excellent books. The first is "The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You" by Elaine N. Aron, Ph. D.
Our clinic offers professionals whose services include public speaking services, biofeedback, clinical hypnosis, Christian counseling, bariactric evaluations, individual and family counseling, psychological testing and evaluation, panic and anxiety attacks, E.M.D.R. treatment for panic attacks as well as Post traumatic Stress Disorder, and treatment specifically for stress management issues.
I have been an adjunct faculty staff at Drury University in their Behavioral Science Department since 1992. I have presented regional workshops on treating trauma and worked with returning U.S. military veterans since 2006. Our counseling service is proud to support The Wounded Warrior Project with monthly contributions to provide additional support for our service members both those still on Active Duty and those Retired.
A great deal of the work that we do involves psychological testing of individuals and families.
One of the newer features we now offer is Telehealth Remote Testing and Counseling. This means that one of our staff can go into rural areas and do testing via the internet. This saves the client or patient a great deal of driving while giving them the comfort of individual psychotherapy or testing in the privacy of their home or a local office. Timothy Blanton MA. LPC. is in charge of setting up remote testing and he travels all of the small towns in Southwest Missouri offering this service to many non-profits as well as Medicaid sponsored agencies. Psychotherapy and counseling services are also offered through Telehealth. Please note that you may now do Telemental Health from the comfort of your home using "Go To Meeting" for your session.
