Dr. Murrell's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Murrell "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Murrell "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."
