I work with individuals and couples who want to learn more about themselves and grow within their relationships. My couples aim to improve their communication, conflict management, emotional/sexual connection, and trust. They wish to grow together, restore their curiosity, and have deeper conversations about challenging topics. My individual adults and teens often seek support in improving their relationships, processing difficult feelings/events, managing anxiety/stress, and making positive behavioral changes. They typically want to feel heard and understood, to learn skills when facing everyday life.

Therapy is a deeply personal and transformational process that at its core supports the inherent autonomy of the patient. And as humans, it is also true that we are intrinsically relational beings. As a psychoanalytic therapist, I help my patients gain a deeper understanding of themselves within their contexts. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, children, and couples from diverse backgrounds and walks of life. I also work with individuals dealing with personality disorders, emotional disorders, complex ptsd, and addictions. As a therapist (and human) I value my own ongoing personal therapy + consultation.

How do you care for yourself? How do you deal with adversity especially when your struggling? All of us have a tendency to latch on to reasons of why we do what we do, but sometimes these reasons aren’t always true and can actually cause us and those we love more suffering. I look forward to working with you on any issue, in a safe confidential space. I have a collaborative style that focuses on the goals of healthy processing, empowerment, and self-sufficiency.

I consider myself a generalist practitioner. I have worked with clients across the lifespan with issues ranging from decision-making to processing trauma. I specialize in solution-focused therapy and I am trained in EMDR. I work best with those seeking change; change in thought patterns, coping skills, behaviors, or how you react to your emotions. I believe getting past the initial stressors and issues causing you immediate problems can help free up space to dig deeper into what root causes are impacting your life. I love to help clients find solutions that increase coping and be there to support ongoing self-growth.

Hi! I'm so glad you are here. My name is Tanya Martinez-Cardenas. I offer counseling & substance abuse professional (SAP) services to anyone in the U.S. (All my SAP services are done virtually via Zoom. It's easy, quick, & I offer payment plans.) When it comes to counseling, I use exploration very much like a scientist does. Change doesn't just come about. We have to become aware of what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how it "affects" us. If we continually sabotage ourselves, success will always feel out of reach. We will always cut ourselves short. We won't try new things. We will be afraid to fail, so we will settle.

My philosophy begins inside the heart of my clients. As a former elementary teacher, I learned the valuable lesson that my kids will never care what I know or had to teach them until they knew I cared about them. This lesson is applicable in so many instances, and especially when I counsel. I enjoy getting to know every child that I work with. I want to know them as a person, and especially what they enjoy most. That is one reason why I am passionate about play therapy. This technique incorporates what children love most, which is often to play, and in doing so, they are more at ease to have meaningful conversations.

More than anything we want to be loved, accepted and have meaningful relationships. Having people we can rely on, trust and enjoy life with gives us joy, purpose and the support we need to be ourselves and get through life's challenges. Finding and having meaningful relationships, however, can be challenging. Whether you are ending a relationship, starting a new one or have been hurt by someone you are close to, it can be scary to deal with the pain, start over or know how to be yourself. In some cases, we may even feel lost, need help healing, coping or rediscovering what makes us us and what makes us happy.

One of the greatest challenges of life is finding peace within yourself, when one is challenged by depression, anxiety, abuse or trauma that peace can sometimes feel unattainable. This is why finding the "Right" therapist can be a task in itself. As for myself, I believe that "Normal" only exist on a washing machine & finding the "Right" therapist can be just as important as finding the perfect time to pursue that peace.

If you want to learn how to process negative emotional disturbance so that you can feel a sense of relief and heal yourself, I can be there to guide your journey.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
