If you experience challenges with low mood, anxiety, depression, or cultural identity, Martha is ready to kick-start a more confident and resilient version of yourself. What sets Martha apart is she recognizes therapy is not a one-size-fits-all form of care; her approach is about understanding your unique needs and creating personalized therapy plans to overcome your challenges and achieve your goals. She’s also passionate about working with highly active individuals (in sports or other physical activities) who feel weighed down by anxiety and depression. Martha knows first-hand how these challenges can impact your game, goals, and ability to perform and will work collaboratively with you to regain your excitement and ambition.

When heading into sessions with Martha, you can expect her to lean in with curiosity and empathy. She’ll create a safe space for collaborative discussions and work with you to reflect on positive changes for personal growth. She normalizes challenging conversations, fosters deep reflections, and creates affirming self-care skills for daily living. Think of Martha as your personal cheerleader, supporting your mental health journey!

Beyond sessions, you can find Martha practicing martial arts (she has a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!!). Martha enjoys being highly active and athletic; she loves to travel, get creative with art and write in her spare time. She enjoys sitting down at any local cafe, reading a book, and browsing a record shop in the city.
