About Me

Hi, I'm Libby Murdoch, a licensed professional counselor, certified clinical trauma professional, published author, and EMDRIA certified clinician and trainer for EMDR. I'm dually licensed in OH and NC. I am the owner of Brain Based Counseling and Consulting, LLC where I offer individual therapy and EMDR intensives. I am also the owner of Brain Based EMDR Training, LLC and the developed of Resilience Focused Basic EMDR.

Education & Experience

I have a passion for learning and enjoy taking trainings on a regular basis to hone my therapeutic skills. I am an integrative therapist, mainly focusing on bottom-up techniques. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional-II, HeartMath Certified Practitioner, I have a Certificate in Traumatic Stress Studies from the Trauma Research Foundation, and I am also Certified in Choice Theory and Reality therapy. My undergraduate studies were completed at the University of Cincinnati, and my graduate studies were conducted at Xavier University, where I was the co-president of the honors organization, Chi Sigma Iota. I started my practice as most therapists do in community mental health working with dual diagnoses. I transitioned to group practice in 2018. And have been working in my own solo private practice since 2021 offering virtual weekly therapy and in-person EMDR intensives.
