About me

Multiculturally aware, bilingual, independently licensed mental health therapist who understands that compassion and relationship building are at the core of the healing process. I am a trauma-informed, dialectical, and person-centered clinician who believes in both practical and deeply, emotionally based healing processes.

I am a graduate of John Carroll University and have 9 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked with clients in various community mental health settings with problems ranging from situational life stress to severe mental illness. Some special interests include: PTSD and trauma related disorders, anxiety disorders, life transitions, parenting issues, existential issues, couples counseling and personality disorders. I have also completed multiple research projects focusing on anxiety and the efficacy of different treatment modalities. I possess the skills, expertise and compassion to help individuals with a wide range of issues or concerns.

I take a person-centered approach, where I work on building a strong therapeutic relationship with each client in order to help them reach their greatest potential and work towards reaching their goals. I believe that connection and relationship are the two foundations to personal growth. The strength of the relationship is based on my ability to maintain a non-judgmental, trusting and validating environment for the client while encouraging growth. My techniques include an integrative approach, combining multiple techniques, with an emphasis on Mindfulness-based techniques and DBT skills.

Martha has gone the extra mile for me in every way and made a huge difference to my life. She helps me unpack everything and work out how to handle all the various issues I am facing. I feel I am growing and changing every day from this process and her encouragement is very motivating.

Working with Martha has been wonderful! She responds to me quickly and her responses are both thought-provoking and considered. Martha clearly spends time in reading my messages and puts time into her responses. She is also very open to communicating in different methods depending on what works best for me. I'm loving working with her!

Martha has been very helpful with all of my worries, concerns and trauma when I was at a lost of self identity and figuring out how to better communicate with all of my relationships. She really help explain and she'd to light a lot of different parallels with childhood trauma and current life. The worksheets and goals sheets she gave really help to see what I need to work on or see the patterns of behaviors into a different perspective. Very grateful to have worked with her.
