Hello. My name is Nancy L. Martinez, and I am licensed in New Mexico. I have 4 years of clinical work experience in therapy and 15 years in the mental health field. Through different capacities and positions in mental health throughout my career, I developed a well-rounded knowledge of clinical modalities and skill development. My Masters' degree is in Social Work with an emphasis on Bilingual/Bicultural Studies. I was honored to do my thesis within some pueblos in Mexico at the School of Social Work there. I have a diverse background and do my best to render culturally sensitive therapy. Through support, guidance, and the work of therapy, I have seen the restoration of many. My experience includes helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, depression & bipolar disorder, and skills regarding thinking patterns. I also offer therapy within a Christian and biblical context, if requested. I have worked together with many clients to provide a safe and open environment where thoughts and feelings can be expressed with no judgment. This journey may prove to be life-changing, and it begins with one step forward. I am here to support and assist you in the pursuit of self-growth and healing. I will do so with empathy and compassion as I accompany you during this process. I work with 18+ and look forward to working with you.

Ms. Martinez is a highly skilled and experienced therapist. She listens and hears what is said and offers effective solutions that are tailored to my mental and emotional state. Ms. Martinez is empathetic yet is straight forward in her recommendations. Most important is her faith in Jesus and her utilization of His Word in our sessions.
