Practice Information
At Keene Murray Therapy, our approach to helping people is:

Creative. Our work is shaped both by our immersion in creative arts and by our extensive background in a variety of psychological approaches.

Respectful. We recognize that our clients are the only ones who can truly tell their story. Our function is to help clients identify and achieve their goals.

Non-pathologizing. We believe that most problems are simply former solutions that no longer work. We help clients discover more adaptive means to meet life's challenges.

Collaborative. We value the interpersonal quality of a therapeutic relationship that acknowledges the effects and influences that both client and therapist contribute.

Depth-oriented. Experience has shown us that significant change has its roots in the multi-layered interconnectedness of a person's inner life. We accompany clients as they explore and learn to navigate this strange and exciting territory.

Groups I work with include: Elders facing adjustment or end-of-life issues, couples (including gays/lesbians) with relationship difficulties, families experiencing inter-generational problems, victims of trauma (e.g., car accidents, violent attacks, natural disasters), children and teens needing psychological assessment of intellectual and/or emotional functioning.

We offer phone and video-conference therapy sessions. Home/site visits are available in our neighborhood.

We operate on a fee-for-service basis, accepting payments by cash or check. We provide receipts for insurance reimbursement purposes. Check with your insurance company about their out-of-network policy.

Education
I earned a B.A. in Greek and English from Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Rosemead School of Psychology in La Mirada, California.

My clinical intership was at Boston University's Danielsen Institute.
Bio:
I am a clinical psychologist specializing in marriage and relationship counseling. I have also developed therapeutic programs for elders in nursing facilities and individuals with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, chronic anxiety and/or obsessive habits. I administer standardized tests for intellectual performance, psychological functioning, academic achievement and other specialized assessments.

In addition to conducting my private practice as a clinical psychologist, I have served as an associate professor and the head of a graduate counseling program. I have also provided supervision as the clinical director of an outpatient therapy clinic. I have been a consulting psychologist in nursing homes, hospitals and assisted living facilities.

My partner, Gretta Keene, LCSW, and I teach workshops and seminars and are training supervisors. Our work is shaped both by our extensive background in a variety of psychological approaches and our immersion in creative and dramatic arts.
