As a male therapist, I am open to talking about the challenges that men face.
Life can be difficult and overwhelming. Negative thoughts, feelings, and conflicts can make life hard to cope with. It can be tough to find someone to connect with and work on life’s challenges. I look forward to hearing your story and collaborating with you to create a plan to improve your life. Mind Heart Life is about transforming lives. Transformation begins in the mind because our thoughts impact how we feel and act. Feelings also shape how we relate to others and I believe that healthy relationships are key to a fulfilling and meaningful life. Steve Murphy MA, MS LCPC

In mental health, that includes men and boys.
If you are new to therapy, reaching out for help is an act of courage and a demonstration of your inner strength and hope for a better tomorrow. If you are experienced with therapy, you have developed your lists of likes and dislikes based on your experiences in therapy. I know that therapy works from my own life's journey, and I have confidence therapy will work for you. Now the task is finding the right fit. I want to meet with you for a "no cost," 15 minute chat to see if I am a good fit for the situations in your life that are motivating you to seek help.

I have extensive experience working with recovering individuals, adult children of alcoholics, and with men who struggle with depression and articulating their feelings.
As a psychotherapist, I have more than 30 years experience providing clients a safe, non-judgmental environment where issues can be explored and difficult feelings can be identified and expressed. I specialize in working with individuals and couples whose difficulties in early relationships have created corresponding difficulties in the present, including feeling locked into negative patterns of relating, depression, anxiety, and loneliness. I provide my clients the opportunity to learn new more effective ways of communicating and relating that in turn can lead to positive changes in their lives.

Are you a Black male who is struggling with society's expectations and standards of being strong and withhold your thoughts and feelings from others? Has this led to anger, rage, sadness, hopelessness, and dedicating an extra effort to everything that you do? You may have been inundated with images in film, television, and social media that depict Black males as overly masculine, and in some cases, aggressive, violent, and hyper-sexual. Being vulnerable as a young Black man is socially unacceptable. It sends a message that to be accepted as a Black man , you must fit this specific role in which strength and stoicism are mandatory.

Are you feeling frustrated, lonely, overwhelmed, or depressed? Does it seem like there must be more to life than what you are getting? Sometimes we just feel stuck in our lives. Old emotional wounds or patterns keep nagging at us, keeping us from feeling free to live authentically. Relationships can be one the most rewarding or distressing parts of our lives. Changing the way we relate to ourselves and to others is key. Therapy is a transformative process that can help us address our concerns about ourselves and others.

Mark believes that individuals are uniquely gifted with a purpose to seek self-actualization and contentment to optimize intrapersonal wellness. He attributes the complexities of humanity to have enabled him to implement or utilize an eclectic approach to counseling. A therapeutic process is a safe place for individuals to learn more about themselves, mental health awareness, and spiritual connection. As noted within the inner-person, counseling requires a commitment to address cognitive and emotional deficits to seek wellness to promote a healthy balanced lifestyle.

It's hard to know how to choose a counselor. I'm happy to meet for an hour or two at no charge to make sure it is a good match. Be aware that I accept Maryland and Federal Workers' Compensation. It starts with feeling at ease with someone, and feeling understood. I'm willing to be helpful for people who struggle with addiction, but I may need people to see an additional counselor for more focused help on this. One's thinking and beliefs are important, and certainly there is an emotional component. I find that people feel a lot better when they feel their lives are moving forward.

A myriad of reasons can lead someone to therapy. What if you aren't necessarily struggling, but you just want to know yourself better? Maybe you're an intellectually curious person who's tried to make sense of things for a while, but you aren't necessarily ill. Therapists can be unsure how to work with this as they're often pathology-based. Philosophy, which ponders the deeper "whys" of things, can help--but it can be overwhelming without a guide. We, as a team, can examine where you are and where you want to go to better refine your personal goals.

I work with children and teens and their families. I address issues including problematical attachment with parents and/or caregivers, negative self-image, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, oppositionality, poor communication and social skills, acting out behaviors, sibling problems, and difficulties in school. As a therapist, I establish a safe "container" in which to work with children and parents together in order to strengthen a child's positive sense of self, reinforce the family system and bonds of attachment, and promote behavioral and emotional regulation. I work with teachers and school administrators to help children learn and thrive in school

I CAN HELP YOU HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP. PREMARITAL AND COUPLES COUNSELING. "Why does my partner overreact?" "Why do I get so triggered?" "How come the punishment doesn't fit the crime?" “Why can’t he be more supportive?” “Is anything I do ever enough for her?” While you are feeling hurt, you have an added layer of confusion. You simultaneously love your partner and even hope to stay in this relationship to keep your love, family, and dreams intact. You are torn in a tug-of-war of emotions and desire to feel understood, accepted, and embraced by your partner.

I have been in private practice for thirty years. I work well with families and adolescents. I tend to be more directive and confrontational in my counseling methodology. Having been in the U.S. Marine Corps and combat tested, I work well with those suffering from PTSD. I use cognitive behavioral therapy as I believe it gets to the point and allows one to make signifiant changes quickly. There are two things we do - think and behave. Change the way you think and behave to more positive and we have a positive outcome.

In my practice, I work with a diverse clientele: children, adolescents and adults from all backgrounds. My approach is practical and conversational as we explore together the stressors of daily living, relationship concerns, parenting issues, and in some instances, severe psychiatric disorders. Often, clients seek short-term interventions, though for some difficulties therapy continues for an extended period. I allow my clients to set the agenda for our work together and decide what sort of help is needed.
