Martha Medina, LCSW

NM Board Approved Clinical Supervisor

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in New Mexico and Texas. Listening, empowering & being present with my clients is what I am passionate about. My clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents & adults. Some of the therapeutic modalities I have used with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, traumas or other mental health issues are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Strength Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma Focused therapy. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach. I will help guide you and assist you in coming up with strategies to help conquer your life. 

I can assist in the following specialities: trauma, depression, anxiety, work, family and relationship stressors, LGBTQIA issues, grieving and loss, ADHD and personality disorders, cultural issues, women's issues and spirituality or religious trauma.

Creating a safe space & being non-judgmental is extremely important to me when working with my clients. 

This is a huge  step for you and I would love to be a part of your therapeutic journey.

Marie Velasquez, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have spent my career working in the social services field, until making the decision to provide counseling services. In my experience I have noted that we all go through times in our lives when we are not feeling our best selves. These feelings manifest as depression, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed or discouraged. We all have unique coping mechanisms to help get us through these tough times. Our history, home, work, and community impact how we feel, interact, and deal with life issues. Therapy is a helpful tool to help us identify our true emotions, then guide us in accessing and/or developing coping mechanisms, and how to use them effectively. 

I use several approaches to include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Family Systems, Narrative Therapy and Psychodynamic Approach.   

My goal in therapy is to meet you where you are and provide the support to access the tools you need to deal with your challenges. I use a culturally sensitive, person-in-environment approach as everyone’s experiences are different. We will work as a team to address issues and concerns and identify effective strategies to establish homeostasis in your life. 

It is my honor to serve those who choose to share their lives with me.
