Teri MurphyICEEFT Certified Trainer
Teri Murphy, PhD is a licensed marriage and family therapist and an ICEEFT Certified Trainer, Supervisor, and Therapist in Emotionally Focused Therapy. A former bona fide rocket scientist, Teri transferred her systems engineering skills and strong scientific foundation to therapy, and has owned a private practice in Franklin TN since 2012. Building on her previous career experience as well as her time as a graduate level counseling professor, Teri has curated a fresh, systemic perspective on creating connection, deep healing, and smoothly functioning relationships.
In addition to her clinical work, Teri is a sought-after speaker and loves sharing her knowledge on attachment, compassion, self-of-the-therapist, and relationships. Teri has written articles on love, self, relationships, and the science of connection for multiple national and local publications [Simple Practice, the Tennessean, Bedlam Magazine, and Venn Magazine], and enjoys facilitating workshops on relationships, authenticity, and personal development.
Above all else, Teri is a spitfire academic who believes in developing compassion for human beings through therapy, continuous self-assessment, listening to and learning from leaders in multiple disciplines across fields of work, and challenging herself constantly to be radically honest, question everything, and ultimately, when in doubt, to follow where love leads. She loves spending time with her husband and two teenage children, and has a special love for coffee. Lots of coffee.
