About

Hello! My name is Scott Murray, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in private practice as a psychotherapist. I am a graduate of Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL, where I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Social Work and soon after attained my Illinois clinical social work licensure. I have 20+ years experience working in outpatient clinics, in-patient psychiatric treatment facilities, academic institutions, and forensic facilities where I provided assessment and therapy to individuals, groups, couples, and families.
I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), along with eclectic approaches, for evaluation & treatment of: depression, anxiety, severe mental illness, & personality disorders. I provide individual, couple, & family therapy, in addition to mindfulness & stress-reduction groups.
My goal is to help people learn new and adaptive ways of coping and communicating to resolve emotional or relationship problems and return to living happy and healthy, balanced and productive, lives. My ideal client is one that is self-determined to feel better and improve the quality of their life and that of their family.
