About me

Life can hurt. Therapy can help!

My name is Jessie Martinez. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Saint Paul, MN. I have 5 years of experience providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families.

With a caring, open, and non-judgmental approach, I work to create strong therapeutic relationships with clients. Together we can explore past issues, current struggles, and your goals for a healthier and more meaningful future.

My specialties include stress, anxiety, depression, family issues, grief, loss, transition, gender, identity, sex and sexuality, life purpose, and relationships. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches including Relational, Strengths-Based, Client-Centered, Trauma-Informed, Psychodynamic, and Internal Family Systems. I also incorporate the use of creative expression, holistic health and healing, mindful movement, ritual, and spirituality in my practice.

It is important to find the right therapist. We will spend time exploring your needs and situation to best assess whether I am a good fit for you.

We all need support and connection. Congratulations on taking the first step toward a healthier, more meaningful life. I look forward to connecting with you!

Warm Regards,
Jessie Martinez

I love her timeliness, her respect, yet encouragement and suggestions, and validation. She gives me the space I need to talk about whatever. And when I say whatever, I mean WHATEVER! I love where our conversations go sometimes!

I've had a few sessions with Jessie so far, and she's a wonderful therapist. Very easy to talk to, knowledgeable, insightful, and non-judgemental. I've been hesitant to pursue therapy in the past, but she's made me feel more comfortable discussing my problems than I ever thought I would.

Jessie is thee best therapist I’ve ever had and trust me, I’ve tried a few (10 +) - none of which connected to last more than a session or two. I’ve been with Jessie for over 6 months I believe and look forward to every session; it’s hard work she pushes me to do but she understands my threshold and supports me as needed. Couldn’t recommend enough. Great listener. Prompt responses. Highly skilled.

I have had only one appointment so far, but Jessie has been so supportive, and incredibly easy to talk to and open up to. I look forward to our future sessions.

My first time doing therapy and I had to change my therapist after the first session but ever since I got connected with Jessie, my therapy experience has changed so much and now a therapy session with Jessie is something I look forward to every Monday. She's attentive and what I like most is how she's able to steer my direction of thinking by asking introspective questions that through thinking about them opens a new thought process for me instead of telling me what I need to do. Highly recommend her 110%

Jessie has a been a wonderful person for me to talk to over the past few months. I was very skeptical about therapy beforehand thinking it wouldn't work for me and also my struggles with asking for help but she made it so easy to go into discussing my problems and patterns and what I wanted to do. Whenever we have our video sessions I feel like I can discuss things openly and work towards solutions or just get a better understanding of the things going on around me. Over messages Jessie has also been a massive help by walking me through my doubts and talking about what certain things can mean. I always feel like I can rely on her, as her wide array of knowledge in the field is always relevant and useful. Jessie has helped me massively and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.

I had a great time with Jessie as my therapist. She was thoughtful, kind, and a great listener. Even when I rambled for 15 minute about podcasts.
