Dr. Martin is great! She was very good at helping me understand myself and where I was prior to starting therapy. During our time, she helped me with tools to help me overcome the struggles that I was facing. She was great at being graceful when she knew that I needed it and yet still helped me get to where I am today. I would recommend Dr. Martin 10 out of 10 times!

Dr Martin is very empathetic and understanding. I have never once felt judged by her, and have felt free to be my authentic self. I feel like I can trust her with what's going on inside my mind.
