Susie Martinez - LPC / MA
I am committed to providing compassionate and individualized psychotherapy in a warm, safe and accepting environment. In our work together we will strive to bring about the emotional growth, change and healing you desire. I use a flexible and integrative approach to therapy within an attachment focused framework. I believe how we cope with difficulties in our lives, no matter the severity, is greatly affected by our past and present relationships and experiences. We will focus on your unique strengths and abilities to conquer troubling issues as we dispel difficult messages you have received and internalized in the past. I believe a healthy therapeutic relationship between my clients and myself is one of the keys to a successful therapy experience.
I work with a variety of concerns including trauma and crisis situations, PTSD, loneliness, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, life transitions, or a consistent feeling of being “too sad”. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and couples. Pictured above is Sophie, my white golden retriever therapy dog. She is two years old and is just completing therapy dog training. If you wish, she will attend your therapy session. She loves to meet new people and has a calming effect on clients and the therapy session environment.
If you desire to incorporate your faith into your sessions, I am a person of faith and we will work together to draw upon this strength as one strategy for healing. Unique to my practice is 12 years of work with victims of crime, trauma and PTSD patients.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time gourmet cooking, traveling and take pleasure in time with friends and family. I am married to my husband of over 30 years and have two adult children.
I look forward to meeting you and embarking on your journey of healing together.
