Amaranta Penate-Marty

LPC

About Me

Hi! I am a bilingual and bicultural psychotherapist that sees this profession more as a calling than a job. I love helping people understand that they can have healthier and happier lives if they invest a little bit of time in understanding their way of thinking and how this impact their emotions and behaviors.

I have extensive training in trauma, depression, anxiety and other mood and personality diagnosis as well as grief and substance abuse. Being able to reach both cultures: North American and Hispanic, has also opened my understanding of other relationship problems in couples and families when language and culture are barriers in their interactions.

I see every person as individual and I adapt my training to their individual needs. Counseling is not for the sick, but for the ones that believe in change. What you will receive in therapy is unconditional acceptance since that is the main point of my life's philosophy.

I look forward to start helping you! Should we start?

I've been working with Marty for awhile and she is great! She always has very practical advice and a great memory for details so we can pick up where we left off the week before easily. Highly recommend her to anyone needing strategies for depression or anxiety.

Marty is fantastic. I feel so seen and validated with her. I trust her expertise & knowledge in all the areas she speaks with me about. She links things to really relevant parts of my life & is helping me to understand myself better and better as the weeks go on. Thank you. This therapy is invaluable to me.

I have just recently started therapy with Marty, but she completely banished any fears I had over starting. I immediately felt relaxed and as though I could discuss the things I'm struggling with. It's so relieving to have someone validate your thoughts and experiences without judgment, and I would definitely recommend Marty to anyone I know considering therapy. I only wish I had signed up sooner :)

Written by H.E. on Jul 15, 2021 after therapy with Amaranta for 10 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, and compassion fatigue

Just the best! So very grateful for Marty's ongoing support, expertise, experience, counseling, knowledge, and life saving advice. I have grown so much, and am so happy that I found her and that I have her in my life. This has been life changing for me.

Marty is very accommodating and helpful. She's made me feel very at ease during our sessions and is able to meet you where you're at. She has a refreshingly positive outlook on the objective of therapy and focuses on helping you help yourself.

Thanks for helping me I would highly recommend you

Written by S.T. on Aug 20, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Amaranta was my first and the only therapist I have ever seen in my 50+ years of life. She helped me in so many ways. I spent so many years thinking that I was set as the person who I became that I thought therapy wouldn't be able to overcome the personal blocks and obstacles that I put in my mind for myself but hearing her explanations and advice proved to me that I had the power to change. She empowered me to see my personal situations differently and my life is better because of it. She allowed me to peer into my past and see it in context without feeling despair. I can't express how relieved I am to be looking forward to the future rather than dreading tomorrow. She has my eternal gratitude.

Written by A.L. on Aug 20, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 3 months on issues concerning compassion fatigue

I am so grateful for Marty and her support. She is a wonderful therapist and I feel very safe and open working with her.

Written by E.V. on Aug 10, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Marty has been a breath of fresh air for me. I’ve seen a whole lot of positive changes in my life since I’ve started talking to her.

Written by V.Y. on Aug 08, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, anger management, and compassion fatigue

Marty is such a beautiful person to talk to! She always listens and gives me the answers I need! She’s not only a therapist but also a friend ❤️

Written by M.A. on Aug 06, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

After being in and out of therapy my entire life, I am finally making progress in learning how to manage my depression. She recommends books that I read in between sessions that are helpful and keep me on track. I journal and she responds.
She's supportive, knowledgeable, and empathetic. She is the best ever.

Written by N.I. on Jun 18, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

She was absolutely amazing. When I thought my problems stemmed from one thing she realized immediately it was from another and jumped in quickly to start helping me with them. I honestly do not know what I would have done without her this past month and regret to say that I have to give up this experience with her due to financial reasons. I hope that when my situation changes, I will be able to get back on this app and use her again because it breaks my heart having to lose her. I would highly recommend this woman to anybody and everybody who's going through anything, because she is non-judgmental, and listens and understands everything you will have to say. By far the best counselor I've ever had in my life.

Written by C.H. on Jun 07, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

It took two sessions for me to completely trust her, and I don't trust anyone. She makes me feel safe, seen, and heard. She is kind and not judgemental. I feel comfortable telling her about my life because I know she genuinely wants to help me live better.

Written by A.M. on Jun 04, 2020 after therapy with Amaranta for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Amaranta has given me the confidence to speak about my troubles and I am so thankful for that.

Work with me!
