Keynote speaker

The College of Health Solutions Spring 2024 keynote speaker is Dr. Sophia Murphy, DBH, LPC, CPT, SXI. 

With over a decade of direct service in behavioral health, Dr. Murphy has been fortunate to work with adults, adolescents, and children. Predominantly featured throughout her experiences has been an emphasis on the value of multicultural competency and a deep exploration of the relationship between the mind and body, specifically the processes of decolonization for BIPOC folx.  

As an undergraduate student, Dr. Murphy earned a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology from the University of North Florida. She completed a master's degree from the Department of Counseling at San Francisco State University, specializing in marriage and family therapy with an emphasis in rehabilitation. In earning her Doctor of Behavioral Health degree from Arizona State University, Dr. Murphy received advanced training in collaborative care and population-based health management. Her primary focus includes the relationship between physical health, intergenerational trauma, and emotional health. 

She has supervised doctoral and master's-level clinicians in clinical practice and currently owns and operates a private practice in Tempe, AZ.
