I’m Luz Martinez, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and maintain a private practice in Miami, FL. In 2008, I graduated from Florida International University with a Master of Science in Psychology. I also have certifications as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and a Master's Certified Addiction Professional. I’ve worked in multiple treatment settings with populations ranging from adolescents to the elderly. I use a Person-Centered Approach along with Cognitive Behavior Therapy tailored to each client’s circumstances and needs.
I understand that when people seek therapy, it is because they have experienced or are experiencing an event in their lives. The work I do is in helping people rediscover themselves through a review of their old story patterns and editing the present story. Therapy can be useful for for short or long term goals; and for as long as you need it. There isn't a right way to do therapy. There isn't a right amount of problems to justify therapy. You don’t have to go through it alone. I can partner with you and help you increase your tools in your toolbox to move forward. Hope and support are tantamount in the therapeutic relationship. I will always support you and I will always give you hope, one client at a time.
