Each of us needs some help at some point in our lives and it takes great courage to reach out for help. I believe that finding the right counselor is like finding a trusted friend that offers a safe and non-judgmental environment. I strive to provide this for my clients so that they know their thoughts and feelings are valid and heard.
I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Houston – Victoria (2002). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (2004) in the State of Texas and have been practicing since that time. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.
I have worked in different areas social services specifically with foster children previously removed by Child Protective Services for all types of abuse and with the biological parents to promote healing and reunification. During this time, I gained experience with Trauma Informed Therapy and working to help children overcome the pain of the abuse they have suffered.
I have also worked with Addictions Counseling serving clients within the Criminal Justice department, whether on probation, parole or in a rehab setting. During this time, this counseling also extended to the families of these clients, to help heal and overcome these issues in their lives.
My counseling style is warm and client centered by empowering you, with guidance, to make positive choices for your life and making the changes that will make your life successful. After all the years of counseling experience, my greatest joy is seeing my clients recognize their own strengths and benefit from our time together.
I look forward to working with you.

I have been in therapy off and on for many years throughout my life. Alyce Martin is by far the BEST therapist I have ever had. She really takes the time to listen to whatever you may be going through and provides great tools that you can incorporate into your daily life to help with the situation(s). She is extremely knowledgeable, understanding, completely non-judgmental, has great compassion, and is an all-around great therapist. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for someone to assist them along their healing journey.
