I'm Renee D. Murphy-Hughes, M.A., LPC. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Wisconsin. I have over 26 years of experience in the combined fields of mental health counseling and education.
My counseling approach is a careful blend of the Evidence-Based Cognitive Behavioral Approach, Family Systems, Solution Focused, Humanistic (Rogerian), and Existential Methods & Theories of Counseling.
I am very interactive with my clients and let them lead the sessions. We form goals and objectives so clients can have a precise focus on what that they want to work on. We direct our efforts to reaching them.
Objectives are the small incremental steps we work on in order to reach the overall goal. Flexibility is very important, and as time goes on, new important or refined goals may come up.
Whatever concerns or issues a client has, I am there to support them, guide them, and be an objective listener so that they may come to some insights about their own life situation and effect and implement change as needed.
**I offer free 15 - 20 minute phone
consultations so you may ask me any questions you have or to see if you think you would like to work with me.**
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Symptoms may be short-term, or persistent. Sometimes the basis may be circumstantial or situation. It may be learned behavior, and other times it may have to do with a neurological or hormonal epidemiology. A thorough evaluation of all your health should always be done to rule-out any organic or physical causation. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, gain a new perspective, make behavioral changes, and help you to allow in the positive and joyful aspects of life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances or events. Anxiety, fear, depression, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger past the traumatic events or situations. We can help you understand your triggers and overcome or manage these symptoms. We will guide you through the process of grief and healing. The goal here is to help you process the pain. "You need to process the pain to get to the other side".
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions may be held with each person as necessary and as a couple. It is a supportive and non-judgmental place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship. Effective communication skills is major to a couple's success.
