Therapist in Tacoma, Washington, Graham Murtaugh, LMHC

Graham Murtaugh, LMHC

Graham holds a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. He has completed coursework in, among other things, counseling theories and modalities, psychopathology, assessing and diagnosing mental health disorders, neurobiology, professional ethics, and group dynamics. Since 2017, Graham has served a diverse array of adult clients in various settings, including community mental health (Sea Mar Tacoma Behavioral Health) and private practice settings. He has special clinical interest in the areas of healthy masculinity, life transitions, spirituality, creative expression, and pregnancy loss and IVF, particularly as it relates to male and male-identifying partners.
Theoretical Orientation:
While Graham employs a variety of modalities to tailor treatment to each individual (including somatic, narrative, mindfulness and psychodynamic approaches), his primary focus is utilizing the relationship between therapist and client to foster change. Graham believes we all experience pain, sadness, fear, anger, trauma and uncertainty; these feelings and experiences are often pushed away and can result in distressing or unwanted behaviors. Therapy is a place to explore and learn to welcome the hurt and ignored parts of your story, evaluate your patterns of response and begin to make different choices. This allows you experience different ways of thinking, feeling and being, and build deeper and more robust relationships with yourself and the world around you.
