I deeply respect the personal experiences and life paths of my clients and uses their strengths to assist them in growing greater coping skills to enhance their lives.

Bria Martin, M.A

Registered Mental Health Intern

Bria has the pleasure of working with individuals, children, teenagers, & adults. Some areas of concern involve trauma, grief/loss, depression, anxiety, and micro-aggressions. While I am an eclectic therapist, some of the theories I enjoy using with my clients are Adlerian, Choice/Reality, Psychodynamic, and Attachment theories. I use a combination of directive and non-directive techniques. I believe directive methods benefit clients because hearing discrepancies between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors aloud can foster positive changes, while indirective methods help clients come to conclusions on their own, further fostering autonomy and building confidence.
