About Me

Hello, My name is Barbara Martin and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina. I have been a therapist for about 15 years and have worked with a wide variety of individuals with presenting troubles in a variety of settings. I started out working in outpatient community mental health services then over time also gained experience in higher levels of care outpatient, schools, and inpatient struggling with both mental health and substance related issues. I work with populations from late elementary school years until geriatric using eclectic therapeutic interventions, such as person centered, CBT, mindfulness, DBT, etc. I am experienced in working with individuals who have experienced trauma grief/loss, relationship stress, life transitions, fertility issues, depression, and anxiety related disorders to name some.

As a counselor/therapist I strive to provide an environment for you to share that is warm and free of judgement. Everyone goes through hard times and we have all made plenty of mistakes and regrets alone the way. My philosophy is to work on accepting them so we can move forward as judging ourselves is just going to hinder us from our best self.

I thank you so much for trusting me to help be your guide on your counseling journey. It takes courage to seek counseling and you have taken the first step to make some wonderful changes within your life,

Look forward to working with you soon!
Barbara
