My focus is particularly on women of diverse backgrounds and my therapeutic style includes person-centered, narrative, solution-focused, Gestalt, and multicultural therapy methods.
My name is Carmen Martinez, Bilingual Counselor Intern at Holistically Divine Counseling pursuing a master’s in clinical psychology at Benedictine University. I deeply believe all humans have a purpose, a God-given talent, ability, desire, and light within them to be the best version of themselves and the natural will to live their best lives possible throughout their journey. Sometimes, that light within can become dim and distant due to life’s struggles, challenges, and adversities.

I have a special interest in working with women , those in creative fields, and immigrants.
Forging your own path comes with so many rewards – but finding your footing isn’t always easy. You’re not afraid of putting in the work to create the life you want, but finding the balance between work, school, family, community, spirituality, modern-life demands and self-care takes it toll. At times the journey starts to feel more like an ordeal and you find yourself struggling. Maybe at times you even question if the path you are on is heading where you want to be.

I have extensive experience working with male and female survivors of child sexual abuse as well as sex offender specific treatment.
Do you ever feel like the support of your family and friends is not enough? You don't have to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder to benefit from therapy. Many people turn to therapy for help with everyday life issues: relationship problems, anxiety, and self-doubt. Others seek therapy during difficult times such as sexual abuse and grief. In order to reap the benefits of therapy it's important that you choose the right therapist- someone you can trust, who makes you feel valued with the experience to help you overcome emotional challenges and make changes for the better in your life.

My identities as a queer woman , an artist, and a trauma survivor are reflected in my approach to therapy.
I am a trauma-informed therapist. Trauma comes in many forms: individual, collective, and generational. You are the expert on your own identities and experiences. My job as a therapist is to bear witness to your experiences and empower you to gain the skills you need to make change in your life. My office is a judgment-free zone for us to grow, process, learn, and sometimes even laugh together. Real change can only be facilitated once we build a safe relationship marked by collaboration and mutual respect.

At times it may feel as though our power in our lives has been taken from us. Stress, life transitions, family issues, relationships, and many other factors can play a large role in making us feel anxious, depressed, and not living to our fullest potential. If you relate to this, therapy can help you find your power again. I have experience working with adolescents and adults who have experienced a myriad of mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, and anger. My passion is helping girls and women reach their fullest potential and overcome challenges through empowerment.

My specialty is working women in many capacities.
Focusing on issues ranging from anxiety and depression, to relationship issues and phase of life adjustments, I work with clients to set goals surrounding understanding how past events impact current realities. As a primarily Person Centered therapist, I believe that no two people experience any situation alike. It is my job to take the time to get to know my clients and their realities and sit in the mud with them as a support to get to their desired space. Clients are the experts of their own lives and change only happens when individuals have the dedication and motivation to do things differently.

The bravest thing you can do is begin to understand your own story. As a black woman , a sister, a daughter and a mother; I too have been in your shoes. Throughout life we are told we have to remain strong and we never get the opportunity to not be the strong one for once. This causes built up anxiety, depression and negative emotions which are then taken out on the ones we love the most. Are you ready to face the past trauma and experiences you have not had the opportunity to process? If so, I am the right therapist for you.

This a group practice that employs clinicans of various ethnicities and backgrounds. People come to therapy due to feeling excessive stress at work, at home, or in their relationships. They find the pressures of everyday life have exceeded their abilities, overwhelmed their senses, and left them with an inability to cope. They are often having problems with school, completing tasks, getting along with others at work, and finding activities enjoyable. We believe in the resiliency of the human spirit, and that therapy is a process of exploring and getting to know oneself.
