Dr. Mecca Major-Martin

(LMFT, PhD)

About Me

My past experiences have assured me of the benefits of connecting with clients and enabling me to have a deeper understanding of their needs, obstacles, and struggles in their life. My philosophy stems from one of my favorite authors Iyanla Vanzant; “when we do not choose, we live by default”. Allow me to help you through the troubling times as a professional. Giving you the respect and confidentiality needed in building a rapport leading down the healing path to a healthier, happier you with a holistic approach to therapy.

Welcome, my name is Mecca Major Martin, I have seven years of mental health experience. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who holds a Ph.D. with research focused on delinquent behavior and parenting issues. I have a vast amount of experience with personality disorders, anxieties, depressive disorders, addiction, mental illnesses, and other disorders. I have a strong foundation in psychology, I have worked as an Addiction Specialist, Functional Family Therapist Supervisor, and Coordinator for the Federal Probation and Parole Integrated program which afforded the experience of helping individuals assimilate back into society, more importantly, their communities with much success I might add. No problem is too big, no issue too small. Allow me to support you through these difficult times.

She's gotten me to think through my issues and dig deep. As a guide, not as a crutch. And I'm truly grateful for it

Dr. Major-Martin is exactly the therapist you need if you like people being straight up with you yet respectful. She is consistent with her communication, validating in her approach, and holds space the way that is needed when participating in inner work. She is honestly the best therapist I’ve had (and I’ve had quite a few). Highly recommend!

Dr. Martin is the perfect balance between acting the professional she is, and following my cues to talk as if we’re old friends. She’s encouraging and always asks my feelings first, and then suggests ways for me to work through and find a solution without her actually telling me what to do. She plays up the nice and relaxing vibe, and I feel very respected and most of all, I feel like I matter. I would recommend her without a second’s hesitation.

So far I’m pleased with Dr. Major-Martin’s approach to my concerns. I like that she is empathetic but professional. I may be able to dig deeper into some issues and finally overcome some of my emotional hurdles that still haunt me . Dr. Martin and I have had some transparent conversations and she seems committed to helping me reach complete freedom from my emotional trauma and generational cycles of hurt.

Dr. Mecca is patient and understanding. She listens without interrupting and allows you to express yourself without judgment. She seeks to learn her patients, helps you uncover your issues, but makes sure to allow you to make your own decisions. She gives things to help you reach your goals. The therapy is about you and for you. When you’re ready... she’s ready to take you to the next step in your recovery.
