About me

I am a thoughtful, understanding, supportive, warm, and focused licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) located in Schaumburg, Illinois. I have 5 years experience in the field in a variety of settings, and am currently working in private practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, self-esteem, anger management, relationship issues, and struggles with parenting. I have a very eclectic counseling style and I draw on a lot of techniques from different treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Gestalt, Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, depending on what works for you! My approach will always be molded to fit your needs.

You are not alone in your experiences. The important choice and first step to recovery is to seek help. Together we will identify and build on your strengths, and create a solid foundation to work towards your goals and to live the full, abundant, authentic life that you deserve.

Talking to Marta has been really helpful for me. She's been helping me work through so much in my life. And as someone who travels a lot for work with a crazy schedule, being able to do things online has been really helpful.

Martha is great. Giving me active help when I need it and letting me talk through things when I need someone to listen.

Marta has been my therapist for a year now and she has been wonderful especially not knowing anything about therapy and how it works she is understanding and really makes sure I am understanding of what therapy is all about. She listens to my problems and things I need and helps me constantly through anything I am going through every week. She is great!

Marta is a fantastic therapist! She listens, offers feedback, and works with you to work on the areas of concern you have. She’s very kind, calming, and non judgmental. She is very knowledgeable and uses all kinds of resources to aid in your treatment. Highly recommend her!
