Krista Murphy

south minneapolis therapist

I will work to make our sessions a safe place that you can bring the hardest challenges to and feel truly seen and heard. Together, we’ll develop a path forward rooted in your own personal strengths and values. We’ll also discover some practical tools you can use to care for yourself, connect with others, and overcome barriers you’re facing. I look forward to supporting you in times of challenge and distress, while also celebrating your resiliency and strength.

Most of my career has been spent working with adults and families who have experienced challenging circumstances, such as abuse, homelessness, chemical dependency, and involvement with large systems (e.g. probation, child protection). I also have worked with adolescents who are experiencing emotional and behavioral concerns. Because life can be chaotic and filled with stressful demands, I will work to make our meetings a safe space where you and your family can feel comfortable and respected.

As a graduate student currently completing my master’s degree and pursuing clinical licensure, I work under the supervision of a licensed clinical social worker (LICSW).
