Maria Martin, LPC


About Me

I work with women who struggle with blended high/low self esteem. To the outside world, we are successful and have our shit together. Except we are masters at hiding pain. Inside, we have a black hole filled with guilt, shame, and feeling unworthy. We feel stress managing family, life, career, relationships, and don't feel good enough. We carry trauma in our bodies and it shows up in our daily life. From a young age, we learned self betrayal was pivotal to be worthy of love and to feel good enough. We didn't have a voice. My focus is repairing the damage due to past experiences and how it’s created a critical view to our own self.

Education & Experience

With 16 years in the field, I've specialized in developing high self esteem, managing stress, exploring emotions, processing trauma and PTSD. My approach is highly tailored and uniquely customized to each client. I utilize talk therapy, EMDR, somatic work and Internal Family Systems (IFS). My goal is to help you step into a life that is self-designed. You can find me on Psychology Today Directory.
