Heidi Martin

(MS, LMHC, NCC)

About Me

Hi my name is Heidi and I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida and Washington State, as well as a board certified coach. I have over 8 years of experience, primarily working in private practice

People come to therapy because they want to feel better. It may be relationship problems, anxiety/depression, work related concerns, etc., but whatever the reason, they want to feel better and do better.
In my experience, most people want a greater understanding of themselves and their situation. Making life work and feeling more comfortable with themselves is the goal.

I focus on altering self-defeating behaviors and beliefs, helping my clients to gain perspective with a focus on improving the quality of their lives.
Among the many tools that promote growth and well being, I utilize insight and mindfulness to help achieve client goals.

The people I work with tend to be bright and high functioning yet they sense something is missing. My job includes, among other things. noticing hidden themes and repetitive patterns. Many people treat others better than they treat themselves and usually are much harder on themselves than others, which causes untold pain.

I have a lot of admiration for people who embark on a therapeutic journey, it takes courage to seek a more fulfilling life but as serious as I take my work, I also conduct therapy in a relaxed manner where laughter and collaboration is encouraged.

I look forward to working with you!

I've had several counselors over my life and Heidi is by far the best. She helped me overcome some truly difficulty times in my life. She's such a good listener, amazing at noticing patterns and making suggestions, and just a super compassionate, brilliant, and helpful person. I think anyone who crosses paths with her is super lucky -- I know I feel that way.

Heidi is very selfless, warm and welcoming, I have never once felt uncomfortable or judged. I have anxiety and depression and Heidi has brought a lot of my unconscious thoughts to my attention making me a lot more self aware. She is very understanding and listens intently, digging deep on issues to get to the very core of them to provide the best possible solution or insight. You can tell she is very passionate and has had a lot of experience, as she's always been accurate in her response. I couldn't flaw her at all, I would recommend her to anyone and wish I found her years ago!!!
