My name is Dr. Patrick S. Murphy. I am excited to be a member of the Great Lakes Psychology Group here in the Livonia office. I am currently taking new clients. I have been working with children/adolescents and their families for over 20 years. I started out working in community mental health. I have worked in the schools as a School Psychologist for over 20 years. Additionally, I have always maintained a part-time private practice. I have significant experience working with children as young as aged three thru adolescence and into young adulthood. I employ a genuine and authentic approach in establishing trusting relationships. I mainly utilize a solution-focused brief therapy model. I am experienced in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well Behavior Modification Techniques.
