Empowering students, athletes, and teachers to gain confidence, balance, and peace of mind

Online therapy for academic communities

IL, FL & SC

Welcome!

If you're a student, athlete, teacher, or coach, I understand how overwhelmed you might feel. Chances are you're exhausted, anxious, stressed, and maybe completely burnt out.

It might feel impossible to find time for rest and to stop worrying about your grades, athletic performance, relationships, or work. To the outside observer, you might appear to have it all together, but internally, the pressure, criticism, and demands you face on a regular basis could be taking a serious toll on your health. 

My experiences working and competing within the words of education and athletics have provided me with first hand insight into what it's like enduring these intense environments; to feel mentally, emotionally, and physically drained and to become overwhelmed with endless to-do lists, feeling like you're never doing enough. I've come to realize that with the right strategies and support in place, IT IS POSSIBLE to build your confidence and to achieve the balance, peace of mind, and fulfillment you deserve.

Online mental health counseling for students, athletes, and teachers can help.

I offer a personalized and holistic approach that will support you with developing the self-awareness, habits, and skills necessary for managing your stressors, improving your mindset, and realizing your full potential. With a committed effort and a willingness to think and behave in new ways, I've seen hundreds of clients gain clarity, improve their academic and athletic performance, and strengthen their overall well-being.

Hi! I'm Megan Murray

I'm a licensed clinical social worker and mental health therapist with a decade of experience. As a former high school social worker, women's basketball coach, and student-athlete, I understand how difficult and time consuming it can be to manage the various responsibilities and challenges you face. 

By using a collaborative, holistic, and strengths-based approach, I will tailor your online therapy sessions to fit your unique values, needs, and goals. I provide sports psychology tools for athletes, and I offer telehealth so you can conveniently access support amidst your busy schedule. 

If you’re new to therapy, skeptical, intimidated, or nervous to begin, that’s completely understandable. We can schedule a 15-minute consultation call to talk through any questions or concerns you have. I look forward to speaking with you!
