About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State with extensive experience counseling many different individuals throughout the various struggles and stages of life.

I pursued my education at Regent University in Virginia. I first started working in hospice and end of life care with geriatric clients. I knew sitting with people through their struggle was something I wanted to do. So I continued to gain experience in hospital, outpatient, residential, non-profit and school settings while pursuing my Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree. I have counseled adolescents, adults and families and couples. I have had extensive experience counseling many living with ADHD, Anxiety, Autism, Depression, Motivation/Self Esteem, Stress, Parenting and Trauma. I have gained enriching experiences connecting with various ethnicities; and counseling several Spanish Speaking Families.

I have recent up to date training and certification in Assessment and Treatment Techniques for Trauma Rooted in Racism. It is important you feel heard and respected, but also feel comfortable with who your opening up to and collaborating with. That way we can make this the best experience for you.

As a therapist, I strive to use evidence based research techniques and skills. I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered, Interpersonal, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused and Strength Based Approaches. I also try to create an environment that is warm, non-judgmental and supportive to helping you tailor your treatment unique to you. I want to help each person feel validated, accepted and supported during their journey to improve their lives.

I look forward to working with you!

"The self-directed modules (reading; worksheets; journal) are all optional but greatly useful, especially between meetings with the therapist. The ability to do this remote is wonderful. I also appreciate that the site is mobile-friendly and does not require a separate app."

"I have been working with my therapist, Martha, for only a few weeks now and am very impressed with the work we are doing together. She is very knowledgeable about the problems I have been experiencing and gives great advice based on her knowledge. She is also very kind and has made it easy for me to be completely honest with her. I am very much an introvert when it comes to my feelings and emotions, but I feel comfortable with her.

Martha was not my first therapist because the previous one and I just didn't "click". I would advise anyone that is feeling as if they are not being supported enough to just change therapists because it is very important to have a trusting relationship for therapy to be effective. There was nothing wrong with my previous therapist, but our personalities were just different. This platform makes it easy to choose who you want to work with and they really care about the progress you make towards your goals.

"I am so glad to have Martha as my anger management therapist. She is an avid listener, offers great suggestions and simple tools to help you improve. She offers hope and inspires you to try different things. She compliments on the successes and helps me analyze the failures. She is quick to respond to my messages and simply a good person. I think I have made tremendous progress over the 4 weeks and have acquired a set of tools to cope with negative emotions in future. Thanks, Martha."

"I am glad that Martha thought of a way to help me facing my fear ... Dogs. It's a good idea that I can start seeing the dog picture on screen and then proceed to see a real one. I firmly believe this help. Her thoughtfulness inspired me. Thank you again!"

"My therapist has been incredibly helpful, empathetic, and enthusiastic about our work together. She handles my concerns without questioning their validity and that makes me feel more heard than I've felt with most of my other therapists. Our work together is going to be life-changing and I'm excited to continue!"

"Online-Therapy has allowed me to look at myself and see what I need to do to improve my quality of life. I have worked on decreasing my anxiety, depression, and panic attacks with the help of my therapist Martha. She has been supportive and helpful. I actually feel that journaling and filling out the worksheets have helped when I was reluctant at first. I highly recommend this form of therapy and Martha to anyone seeking help. Thank you!"
