Meet Our Staff

Sharon Murphy, LMFT 


With more than 20 years in the profession of psychotherapy, I have focused almost exclusively on sexual issues.  I have seen individuals and couples struggling with various aspects of their relationship such as sexuality, intimacy, infidelity and how to have a more satisfying relationship.

Many underlying factors can lead to marital issues. Where there has been pornography addiction or affairs we can help to rebuild the trust that was lost. Many couples relationships grow and deepen with therapy. We hope that we can help you move forward with your relationship and with your life.

In addition, I have had extensive training and practice working with individuals whose sexual issues have resulted in their coming into contact with the criminal justice system.

John Brumme, M. A., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

My passion involves working with couples and individuals who are looking for more satisfaction and fulfillment in their relationships. Often a crisis will bring a couple or individual to my office such as infidelity or addictions. Sometimes a couple will simply have a nagging feeling that their relationship has lost the passion that it once had. Whatever your situation I encourage you to give me a call to see if I am a good fit to help you address your situation.

About My Background
Before becoming licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist I worked in public and private schools as both a teacher and administrator. In that role I have over 20 years experience working with children, adolescents, and their families. Being married for more than 25 years with two grown children, I have the practical knowledge of the challenges facing today's family. My education has given me the theoretical knowledge to work with individuals, couples, and families in a therapeutic relationship covering a wide range of issues.

I have worked with veterans struggling with alcohol and substance abuse, trauma and PTSD. I have experience dealing with loss and grief through working with a local hospice. And I have counseled at-risk youth as well as children in local elementary and middle schools.

In my work with The Center for Change the focus is on relationships, intimacy and sexual issues, including issues of infidelity, sexual addiction and pornography addiction.

I look forward to assisting you address issues in your life that are preventing you from moving forward in a meaningful and productive manner.

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” Brene Brown
It takes tremendous courage and strength to reach out for guidance. Each of us has developed a set of beliefs which shape our world. These beliefs influence our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I am empathic, down-to-earth, and easy to talk to. I am skilled at helping individuals and couples understand themselves in a new light increasing personal growth, self-discovery, and self-empowerment.
 
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” Norman Vincent Peale
 
In addition to my education and counseling experience, I have 30 years of business experience. This unique combination of life, business, and counseling experience expands my ability to provide career counseling and life coaching, as well as traditional therapy.
I am an intuitive therapist who looks at each client’s unique needs through therapy. This means that I can pick up on specific issues and adjust my approach to best suit your particular issues.   Because of this, I utilize an eclectic theoretical approach drawing from different theories and theorists – whatever works to improve self-efficacy and increase personal growth in the client I am with. 
 
“Only when we are brave enough to explore our darkness, will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brene Brown
 
I am a person – just like you – who has real problems, makes mistakes, and is not perfect. My own growth and development comes not only from my education, business, and life experience, but from learning from my mistakes, as well as learning from others. I won’t judge you for doing the same. My goal is to create a comfortable and safe environment for sharing. I also provide a transparent counseling experience, I will answer any questions and explain every step along our journey!
