About Me

Prescribes Medication: Yes

Age Range: 5+

Caroline Murphy is a board certified family psychiatric nurse practitioner offering services to child and adult residents in New York who are older than 5 years. She specializes in working with people who have mood disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (child and adolescent). Caroline takes a holistic approach to caring for clients. She tries to establish a bond with them to better understand all the aspects of their lives that are contributing to their mental health. Caroline also takes the time to collaborate with her clients’ therapist, primary care provider and any other regularly-seen specialists in order to ensure optimal care is being provided across all domains of her client's health.

Caroline first became interested in in mental and behavioral health care when she was in school to become a nurse. When she graduated, Caroline worked on an inpatient psychiatry unit and in in-home care where she observed a lot of geriatric mental health issues. She became certified as a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) and worked in the emergency room to physically examine and emotionally support the victims of sexual assault. These experiences as a nurse pushed Caroline to take the next step in her career and become a psychiatric nurse practitioner and work full time in mental health care.

Aside from her career, Caroline enjoys being a mom and wife, helping others and traveling. She also enjoys cooking and being creative with crafts and décor when she personalizes her spaces. Caroline’s favorite quote is an inspirational statement from Theodore Roosevelt, “Believe that you can and you are halfway there."


Caroline Murphy requires no less than twenty-four (24) hours advance notice of a canceled appointment. Clients canceling appointments with less than 24 hours’ notice, will be billed the full charge for the visit as a No Show Fee. This fee will be billed automatically to the client’s credit card at the time of the cancellation.

Credits for No Show Fee: After having been billed a No Show Fee, all first time clients have the option to reschedule and receive full credit. Upon rescheduling and participating in an initial session within 21 days of the canceled session, the client’s account will be credited with the full No Show fee, and this credit can be applied to future sessions.
