What’s the difference between a coach and a counselor?

– The approach is often different. Counselors deal with issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, and trauma. 

With coaching, clients are working to achieve a particular goal in a certain area of their life.

-Coaching sessions are not covered by most insurance plans. In my practice I, along with my partner, coach couples with the emphasis on relationship and marital goals.

What can I expect in my first session?

 You can expect the therapist to ask questions to learn about your past and to determine what brought you to therapy.

-You can expect compassion, your therapist full attention, and information concerning the therapeutic process.

If there’s information being asked that you are not comfortable answering, that okay. Just let the therapist know.



Why should you work with Martha?

I will bring my A game to each and every session with the sole purpose of helping you accomplish whatever goals that you have set for yourself.

I will NOT double book sessions causing my clients extended wait time. Your time is precious, and I will respect that boundary.

I’m a naturally curious free thinker who will bring new perspectives and new ways of looking at old situations all with the purpose of personal growth.

My virtual sessions make counseling accessible to my clients no matter where they are on planet earth.

– I view my client’s stories and experiences as sacred and honor the privilege of partaking in your journey of healing.


What if I can not afford counseling?

Check if you or your spouse’s employer has an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). 

– EAP is an employee benefit that allows anywhere from up to 8 sessions without any out of pocket costs..

-Speak with your tax professional to see if you could deduct therapy expenses from your taxes as an out-of-pocket health expense.
