About Me

Greetings
I have always had a deep affection for the field of Human Services since the day my siblings came to me seeking advice for whatever problems they had. That personal experience led me to peruse my affection for counseling.

My educational credentials consist of a Master’s in Human Services, License Professional Counselor in both New Jersey & Pennsylvania, and a National Certified Counselor. Additionally, I have extensive training and experience in providing holistic personal development through behavior modification to individuals from all walks of life.

For more than 30 years, I have been blessed with opportunities to provide therapeutic counseling in systems such as: Child Welfare, Criminal Justice, Educational, Cooperate sector, and Military Family Life (all branches). This interaction has provided me with impeccable communication and engagement skills. My eclectic treatment approach is distinct, genuine, and personable using Cognitive Behavioral and Client Centered Therapy. My energetic personality coupled with a sense of humor has always allowed me to engage the most resistant client.

I have come to realize in any therapeutic counseling relationship, to effectively correct thinking and behavioral patterns that produce life long change, the client must be empowered how everything starts and ends with the individual. As a Therapist, I am the instrument that provides a genuine safe space for you to be you while welcoming change inch by inch with the belief, “All things work together for an abundance of good”.

Together, Let’s Do This!!!!

Paula has done a fantastic job of giving me more confidence in my life but also providing a safe place to unpack traumas that I’ve been holding in for far too long. Her kind but focused demeanor has helped me a lot in achieving a better relationship with myself and the things I want to accomplish.

It has been an absolute joy having Paula as my therapist. She is kind, warm, and goal oriented. Paula has assisted me with being able to focus my energy on goal at a time and I enjoy meeting with her each week. She holds you accountable, encourages you, and pushes you to go after what you want. I would recommend her to anyone.

My counselor is amazing. She makes me feel comfortable each time we speak and always provides me with solutions to help me. I feel as if we are family.

Paula Martin has taught me so many things during our sessions. She has helped me become stronger in ways I didn’t think I could. What I saw as weaknesses she saw as strengths. When I was a mess and had no direction she helped me through it. Not only did we talk about bad things but also good. I genuinely feel so lucky I got the chance to be paired with Pula Martin. My only hope is others can be as positively impacted as I was. I can not thank her enough for letting me feel like I can breathe again.

Paula is a compassionate, experienced, and amazing listener. She helped me get to a place in my life that I have fought and struggled to get to, for far too long. Sharing strategies, tools, and beautiful words of advice, Paula taught me so much about life, relationships, and most importantly myself. I think of Paula as my guardian angel who guided me to a place of peace that I hope to stay. Anyone who has the privilege of working with this phenomenal lady will come out with a stronger sense of self and a true appreciation of life and all of its possibilities. Sometimes you just have to finally let go of all that has gotten in your way…Paula will guide you in that journey.

I absolutely loved having Paula as my counsellor. She is funny, has such a warm personality and a beautiful smile, so it’s impossible to not feel at ease when talking to her. Paula is a great listener, very empathetic, encouraging and supportive. She really helped me work through my issues and to find coping mechanisms which have left me feeling empowered moving forward. I am very grateful to have met Paula and for the positive impact she has made on my life.
