I am a licensed professional counselor - supervisor (LPC-S) and certified school counselor (C.S.C.) in the State of Texas. I have a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree in psychology, a master of science (M.S.) degree in psychology, and a doctor of education (Ed.D.) degree in educational leadership where my major course of study involved investigating methods used by colleges and universities to meet the needs of college student-athletes. I have approximately 25 years of counseling experience, but my work in the mental health field reaches back to 1986 when I began my career with adolescent students who were experiencing emotional and/or disruptive behavior concerns. Since then, I have worked with many adolescents in schools, community clinics, colleges, and private practice settings. My work with adolescents has involved addressing difficulties with focus and attention, conduct issues, suicide, relationship problems, and many other concerns frequently encountered by adolescents. Although my counseling approach with adolescents basically involves customizing the sessions to meet the needs of the client, I find that I draw from cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, behavioral, and client-centered approaches the most. I also like to talk with parents, as part of the counseling process, in order to get a full picture of the primary issues we need to address as well as to provide an opportunity to offer any input that might be helpful to you. My ultimate goal is for you to no longer need me. This would mean that either our treatment goals have been achieved or at least the necessary tools are in place. Nevertheless, however long we need to work together as a team, I will be here for you. Let's get started!

Dr Murdock has been great!
Very good listener and quick to have an idea or solution to help. Enjoy the conversation. Sometimes just having someone to vent to really helps me a lot.
Dr. Murdock is great. I would highly recommend if you have any sort of depression and dealing with relationship issues. Very understanding and kind. I will go to him again if needed.
He is really kind, he doesn't judge. He is very helpful and gives a lot of hope and spiritual advice.
Dr. Murdock is great! Helpful in pointing out things I hadnt thought of previously and helps me map through thoughts and emotions I'm having.
