Phone counseling is an excellent method of getting the help you want. According to a study published by the Journal of Counseling Psychology, 68% of the respondents reported feeling very or completely satisfied with their phone counseling and 53% reported feeling better, after as few as one phone session!
Phone counseling is convenient and confidential. You don’t have to allow for travel time, leave the office, or hire a babysitter. Phone counseling occurs behind the closed doors of your office or the comfort of your home – you decide. And it is completely confidential (within the limits allowed by applicable laws). Since there are no reports filed with your employer or insurance company, what transpires is not in any ‘official’ insurance record or on record with human resources. There is no concern of who might see your car parked outside the counselor’s office or who you might run into in the waiting room. No one will know you’ve had a counseling session unless you tell them.
It also allows you to address issues that you may have been too embarrassed or ashamed to address with another person on a face-to-face basis.
Who will I be talking to?
Phone counseling is provided by Jeff Murrah, a Licensed Professional Counselor, who adheres to the strictest professionalism. Jeff is also a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor.

What’s the next step?
If you believe phone counseling is right for you, email email@example.com. A time for you (approximately 50-55 minutes) will be reserved and we will request your credit card information for payment. You will also be asked to fill out a brief, confidential intake form to be emailed or faxed back to Jeff before your first appointment. That’s all there is to it! Then at your scheduled time, simply call the office for your counseling session. If you have further questions, please call or email. We’re here to help.
About Your Counselor
As a teenager, I experienced firsthand how infidelity devastates families. When my own family fragmented in the wake of an affair, it triggered a series of bitter fighting, secrets, and inner turmoil that rippled through the extended family, community and church.
The joy of each holiday, birthday, and accomplishment was quickly poisoned by the ‘hurt that never stops hurting’ in the form of the affair, subsequent divorce and remarriages of my parents.
My journey took me through episodes involving children’s protective services, domestic abuse, spying, legal fights and secret-keeping. The ugly episode continued getting uglier over the years, with threats of murder, and attempted suicides within the family. I wrestled with the inner and outer struggles that each of these issues brought with them.
For the past three decades, I’ve specialized in helping couples overcome the devastating effects of extramarital affairs at my family and couples counseling practice. I bring personal experience and research together in helping families navigate through their crises.
I feel truly blessed to have been able to help thousands of couples go from absolute hopelessness and the brink of divorce to healing, trust, and renewed intimacy.
