I greatly appreciate her systems-thinking approach regarding grief and trauma as well as her willingness to let sessions go wherever the conversation takes us while still maintaining an overall focus for the meeting. She creates a metaphorical space I feel comfortable moving around freely in and gives validatio , highlights overlooked aspects, and offers guidance as needed while I do.

If you want someone who is comforting, understanding, and is able to empathize with you on your struggles, Martina is a great candidate for you. She is a breathe of fresh air when it comes to being the one you can express your emotions to. She can create a laugh while being serious during a conversation or session . I highly recommend her if one is in the need for a calm and dedicated therapist

I haven't known Martina long, but she listens to me and hears me out. she doesn't make me feel insignificant or stupid and she's helped me try therapy again for real this time. I think her advice is very useful and helpful and I can't wait to talk more through my therapy journey.
