About Me

Hello, my name is Ana Martinez. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 7 years’ experience working within my community. I have worked in substance abuse disorders treatment facilities (in-patient and out-patient), in-home therapy for at-risk youth and families, family therapy and as a school counselor. I’ve worked with individuals and families who struggle with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, coping and addictions, relationship issues, motivation and ADHD, self-esteem and many other things. My goal is to help you identify your needs and strengths while creating goals that will help you become successful.


FAQs

I had a client mandated to substance abuse therapy and struggled with understanding her needs and believing in herself. Guiding my client not only throw recovery and finding a supportive community, but having her learn to identify her trigger, cope in healthy ways and trusting in herself again. She started to believe in the possibility of a healthy and happy life, but understood it took work and commitment.

My counseling style supportive, holistic, integrative and genuine. My therapeutic approach combines a humanistic, existential, spiritual and solution-focused therapy. I want to meet each person where they are and create a client-centered session, you take the lead!

My first session usually consists of us getting to know each other. The main goal is to understand you and what brought you into therapy. I will explore what therapy can look and answer any questions you may have.

I’ve always enjoyed working with people and believe healing takes a community.

Highlights

    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    While every session is unique to the clients needs, my goals is to create a safe space for each person to share and process their needs. I believe in client focuses session where the client takes the lead. As we continue to move throw therapy, we will identify goals together to help each person recognizing their own capabilities and change their life.

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I utilize evidence-based therapies, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    I have a strong multicultural background and worked with individuals and family from many different backgrounds. Seeing a person as an individual but understanding the complexities of cultural and family is important. Many times, our mental health is affected by our surrounding and navigating that with someone who is open and understanding can make the biggest difference.
