About me

Hi! My name is Elena Martin.

As a licensed mental health therapist with many years of experience in inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, I see every person as unique and, so is their story.

I am passionate about helping individuals, couples, and families to experience healing and connection. In my opinion, everyone throughout a lifetime will experience some form of trauma, such as personal or relational conflicts, abuse, childhood trauma, crisis, neglect, etc. My essential belief is that when we have support and help, each individual has the power to create positive changes toward personal transformation to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

I was born and grew up in Ukraine and I take into consideration cultural, economic, and religious aspects that play a critical role in shaping self-identity. I have lived in Alaska since 1995. I speak English and Russian.

I am enthusiastic and caring about working with people. I value warmth, genuineness, non-judgmental, and a safe atmosphere where you can share your story and feel understood. By working together, we will process your current challenges, set clear goals, gain new insights into the nature of your problems while attaining personal growth along your journey.

My qualifications include Licensed Professional Counselor (State of Alaska), Chemical Dependency Counselor II (State of Alaska), and a Master Degree in Psychology (I graduated from the University of Phoenix in 2011).

Elena has been very helpful in my healing journey. She is helping me process the chaos of my life today as well as trying to understand where my problems stem from. She has been helpful with giving me worksheets and bible scriptures to help guide me and reflect on throughout the week.

Only had 3 sessions but so far so good. She's been a great sounding board for me to bounce my own thoughts and concerns off of and always has relevant, helpful suggestions for me.
