Care Philosophy

I have been treating clients since 1987 in our Springfield office. In my personal life I was diagnosed and treated for panic disorder, anxiety attacks, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Since recoverring from these disorders I have found that I can teach what I have learned to my clients now from my own personal experience. Since I related well to their feelings my clients with anxiety tend to get well faster as a result.Read more

Dr. Michael D. Murrell, PSY.D says

I am very pleased that so many clients have actually taken the time to write up a review of their experiences.  The fact that all of them gave our clinic a five star rating is very flattering and an encouragement to continue to give our very best to help our clients.

Dr. Murrell is a great psychologist. I came in with severe anxiety issues that were making my school life and personal life completely dysfunctional. He helped me tremendously with various strategies to control my anxiety. He also helped me to understand my own self-degrading cognition and behavior, and how I can and should think more positively of myself. I highly recommend Dr. Murrell for anxiety and depression issues. He is a kind, honest, and laid back person who truly cared about me.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Murrell says..

I have been both a client and a psychologist treating anxiety disorders.  As an adolescent I was very anxious and suffered from test anxiety as well as panic attacks.  High school was challenging for me and I decided my senior year that I would become a psychologist in order to help others as well as my self.  I have treated veterans with combat related PTSD for the past 15 years.  As a person who served as a Medic/ Public Heath Specialist (91S) in the Army from 1968-1974 I have an understanding that Vets seem to appreciate.  Although I have not been in combat I do understand the comraderie and bonding that goes on in the military.  I have been evaluating service members for Lockeed Martin since 2011.  It is very gratifying work and the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing has dramatically improved the treatment of PTSD.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Murrell says...

I was always an anxious child who was very shy and reserved in school.  I rarely got involved in after school activities until my parents enlisted me in the Boy Scouts of America.  That experience, along with some excellent counseling, changed by life. I thrived as a Boy Scout and found that with some encouragement that I could overcome many physical and social challenges that I have long feared to the point of immobility.  I had a few excellent counselors along the way and yet in my mid 30s started suffering from panic or anxiety attacks.  I again went back into counseling and was baptized in 1987 as an adult.  I then quit fearing death and realized that I had a purpose in life.  I was meant to be a counselor and later a psychologist so I could teach people the principles and techniques that helped me overcome the anxiety in my life that was robbing me of the joy of living that I later discovered.  My success as a psychologist in private practice has been the result, in part, of the challenges that I experienced from my early childhood and later as an adult with panic disorder.  I believe, as the Bible states, that all things work for good for those who believe.  God has taken the horrible emotional pain of panic disorder and led me to use that experience to teach others how to overcome this terrifying experience.  Panic disorder and PTSD are very treatable given the right conditions and treatments.
