Sara Murdoch, AMFT, provides compassionate, insightful therapy in Santa Barbara

About Sara

I am a relational psychotherapist that feels called to facilitate a connection for my clients between healing and a life that feels authentic and inspired. I don’t believe that you are a diagnosis but a whole person who may be struggling with some overwhelming challenges.  Connecting with you as an individual and listening deeply to your story helps me to see your unique potential. Together we will create a path to healing using an organic and holistic approach to therapy.

I received a Master’s in Counseling Psychology with a depth psychology orientation from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara with additional training in somatic therapy, meditation, mindfulness and breathwork. I hold certifications in EMDR, Ecotherapy, Reiki Level I, and am a RYT 200 hr yoga teacher. My work with diverse populations from a variety of backgrounds, includes work with individuals, couples, and groups.

My professional experience includes working with trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, relational issues, and navigating challenging life experiences like empty nesting, divorce, aging, break ups, career transitions, and chronic illness. In my personal life, I am a Mom (to an adult human child, two dogs and a horse), a surfer, a hiker, a nature lover, and an adventurer.

Sara will be available in late June 2023 for counseling with teens, adults and couples. To inquire about therapy with Sara, submit a request on the Contact page.

A life that is truly lived is constantly burning away the veils of illusion, gradually revealing the essence of the individual.
