Tonya Murray

Although I’ve lived in the Carolinas now for over half of my life, I’m still a proud upstate-NYer. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Psychology and Human Services-Early Childhood Concentration from the State University of New York at Buffalo.  After graduation, I worked as a residential counselor in a community residence for mentally ill adults. I then pursued graduate studies at Winthrop University where I received my Master of Science and Specialist degrees in School Psychology, completing internships in traditional K-12 school settings and in a psychiatric inpatient setting for adolescents and adults. Upon graduation, I was employed by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, The School at Thompson Children’s Home, and Cabarrus County Schools before opening Murray Child Psychological Services, Inc. where I continued to provide contractual psychological assessment and consultation services to local school districts, charter schools, and private schools in addition to providing psychological evaluations for private clients.

On a personal note, I have been married to my husband, Chris, for 26 years. We have two adult children: Madeline and Alex, and I’m a new grandma to Huxtyn. In my time away from school and work, I enjoy quiet time at home, traveling, supporting our family’s motorsports racing endeavors, and my role as a mom of a University of Tennessee student. Go Vols!
