About

As a therapist, I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and teens that struggle with anxiety issues, anger, attachment repairs and struggles dealing with learning disabilities associated with school, sports and home life. I also work with individuals, couples and families that struggle with marital issues as well as family struggles. I utilize a Client-Centered approach as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy that can help to uncover the disconnect and struggles in relationships and can include anxiety and families feeling stuck, not being able to communicate. We will uncover those issues together .
I have worked as a teacher for 23 years and have been a therapist for 10. I value the emotional and cognitive approach to learning and the needs of each child. It can become overwhelming for a child to develop skills needed to work in a home environment with the pressures of not seeing their teachers or friends.
My focus is to develop a safe, trusting relationship, so that we may uncover areas that need to be addressed, and with much work together and focus on those issues that matter the most. Suppressing significant emotions can cause them to keep resurfacing, so we can address new ways to handle uncomfortable feelings, and reconnect you to your authentic self.

Maria Martin's Groups


How We Love (Couples)

This group is designed to open up communication between couples, and begin a conversation about what connects you and your mate. This group is designed for couples that want to enrich their relationships by looking at communication, defensiveness and sexual intimacy to name a few. We will begin early this fall and can meet online or in my office. The cost is $40.00 weekly per couple. Let's begin to uncover the beauty of our relationships! I am now taking clients that would like to sign up for weekly sessions within a group beginning on November 4, 2021.
