About me

Hi! Thank you for taking time to read my profile. I am a licensed clinical social worker with 14+ years of clinical experience. I am a certified Interpersonal Psychotherapist (IPT), trained in Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I believe my reason in life is to serve, empower, and help people on their journey towards becoming their best selves. I followed my passion to assist people in thriving by obtaining a BA in Psychology and Social Behavior at UC Irvine and a MSW in 2007 from CSULB. I have worked in several clinical settings including nonprofits, hospitals, and schools. I have experience in counseling couples, individuals (adults and children) and facilitating groups. I also have experience working with mothers with high risk pregnancies and postpartum issues, as well as pregnancy loss and pregnancy termination. I have received specialized training in maternal and infant health, as well as women's health and reproductive issues. Congratulations on taking the first step towards improving your well-being. My goal is to help you on your journey by providing a safe, authentic, non-biased and compassionate healing space with an individualized therapy experience. Please let me know how I may assist. Best wishes to you. Marta

Marta is one of the most calm and caring individuals I have met. Her energy is always very positive and she is the embodiment of unconditional positive regard for her clients. She made me feel very safe and was able to create space for me to be vulnerable and talk about my problems. She is a wonderful listener and I am very thankful to have been matched with her - we did amazing work together. I highly recommend her. Thank you Marta!
