Inspring Hope, Health & Wellness
Greetings! My name is Khavah Murray and I am the owner of Hope Deals Counseling & Consulting, a private virtual mental health practice. Your Hope Deal is your personal commitment to a healthier, happier lifestyle and optimal mental wellness.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and clinically certified as a trauma and grief professional. I earned my Master of Social Work (MSW) from The University of Pittsburgh where I also earned a Child Welfare Certificate. I received a Bachelor of Science from The Pennsylvania State University in Human Development & Family Studies with a concentration in Child, Adolescent and Family Services and Counseling.
I have over 15 years of experience providing both social and clinical mental health services in communities, schools, and homes. I have worked on projects and teams addressing affordable housing, offering community-based crisis response and treatment, and consultation on behavioral interventions in schools. In my practice I provide culturally informed psychotherapy utilizing components of cognitive behavioral theory to children, adolescents, families, and individuals. Other clinical approaches utilized are person centered, trauma informed and solution focused therapies. I value the process of self-actualization and provides a safe space for clients to explore and grow in reaching their goals or “hope deals”.
Therapy is available for children teens, families and couples. We will create a “Hope Deal” and help you heal through grief, anxiety, depression and trauma as well as other emotional struggles limiting you from achieving you full potential.
Training & Consultation
Individual Therapy is the perfect way to focus on your specific needs and regain control of your life. With our help, you can define and clarify your goals, and work towards happiness in spite of life’s messes.
We are skilled in healing relationships (family, friendships, romantic partners, etc.) that may have been damaged by miscommunication, anger, violence, divorce, death, or substance abuse.

you can, should, or need to do it alone.”
