I am both a Mental Health counselor and a Chemical Dependenccy Counselor licensed in Ohio with 35 years of experience. I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist. I specialized in helping people with intense anxiety issues who have sometimes chosen unhelpful coping skills.. I have worked with all kinds of people from all types of backgrounds, families and situations. I believe in starting where the person wants to start and listening to what they need. I have worked in jails, hospitals, treatment centers, shelters
and in colleges.
I was asked why I am still working as a counselor and I replied " I am amazed by us humans. I learn every day about courage and resiliency when I listen to the stories of the
people who are trusting me to join them on their journey. " I believe counseling does work when we work as a team. If this sounds like a good fit to you, let's get started.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Martha Laska. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Martha is an absolutely wonderful therapist and is absolutely helpful
Always a pleasure to speak with. Martha is attentive and authoritative when needed.
I have a truly unique and incredibly difficult situation. As soon as I realized the events happening around me were real, I signed up for BetterHelp, knowing I would need help navigating. Marty was understanding, while also having the research and knowledge to help me wrap my brain around the complexities of what I was experiencing.
She's literally the best. I worried I wouldn't be able to talk about everything to a therapist, but she can handle it all. She feels like I'm just talking to one of my aunts, without judgement. She helps me process and see things from a different perspective. 10/10 would highly recommend.
Martha has been great to work with
Marty is great, she's very good at listening and giving that perspective or making a point that we haven't thought of ourselves because we're too close to it. Her advice has actively helped me improve my life and relationships with others. Marty is kind and open minded but will be real with you, too. I recommend her 100%
I enjoy my sessions with Marty. She is someone I feel comfortable talking to. She listens, gives feedback and doesn't judge. I highly recommend Marty.
Marty is a fantastic therapist. I feel heard and I feel there is a connection. I trust her completely and I know she is there to help me.
Martha is incredible, I feel so much more confident and am in a much better state than when we began. Martha is very patient, empathetic and professional. Thank you again!
One of the absolute best therapists I’ve had. Very easy to talk to, incredibly understanding and nice, and gives relatable and applicable advice. Highly recommend.
Martha is the perfect therapist for recovering from abuse. She listens, she empathize, and she provides tools for recovery.
She has been the best therapist I have ever worked with and had given me real true steps to bettering myself and assisting with my self-confidence
Marty has made a huge difference in my everyday life by giving me tons of strategies to work with as well as providing support in my transition and discussing issues in my day to day.
I can't recommend her enough. Just the right mix of spunk and seriousness.
Martha is absolutely amazing! The fact shes okay with text, phone, or video makes therapy so much easier for me to partake in. She gives great advice, is incredibly validating, and she easily kept up with my sporadic thoughts - without making me feel anything about my jumbled thoughts. Highly highly recommend!
Martha has been a life saver and extremely caring. She checked in on my daughter regularly when she was struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder and severe depression while away at college. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Martha was very responsive to my needs, especially after the 1st video session.
She’s been a really great help the last couple of weeks :) strongly recommend!!
She has been very wonderful to talk to so far.
Martha understands my concerns and has been very helpful in helping me see why I react as I do and how I can work to improve my reactions to conversations and events. She "gets" me better than any other therapist I have worked with.
I love Marty, her schedule is very full and I wish I could meet with her more than about every 20 days.
Martha is incredibly patient and a wonderful listener. I am looking forward to our future sessions.
Shew is very attentive, gets the gist of my problem very quickly and goes beyond her call of duty to help.
I look forward to our continued relationship.
Martha is very responsive
Martha has been extremely helpful in discussing my problems and concerns. She makes you feel heard and vaules listening to what you have to say above all else. I am very thankful for the time spent with her and would highly recommend!
Martha is capable and professional. She has offered me extremely actionable strategies to confront life’s challenges, and she is especially skilled at creating a safe and comfortable environment
Martha will tell you what you need to hear vs what you want to hear. When hearing it you may feel like she is going against your wishes, but you will realize she is truly supporting what is best for you. No matter how uncomfortable and painful the decisions that will have to be made are. I recommend Martha to anyone. Thank you for your support Martha.
Marty is incredibly easy to talk to, and she's open in a way that makes me feel like she understands, and in some instances, can even relate. I love our conversations and don't feel like I'm just listening to myself speak! I recommend her highly.
Marty is very well grounded and does a good job of identifying areas to work on do therapy has a purpose. She listens well and is receptive to what you feel is helpful for you personally. She adds a genuine personal touch with her own experiences which humanizes the experience and makes therapy approachable especially for new comers. I would highly recommend her!
I’ve been matched with Martha for a couple weeks now and am blown away by how caring, and informative Martha is. I’ve never done counseling before and am absolutely lucky I’ve matched with Martha ❤️
