- Chronic Pain/Illness
Sometimes when you feel broken, you need the help of another to rebuild. But where do you start when you’re seeking a therapist who is empathetic and experienced, supportive and compassionate?
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 18 years experience, I promise I am here to offer you a hand, not a judgment. Over nearly two decades, I have worked with individuals, couples and families specializing in depression, anxiety, grief/loss, bereavement, body image, caregiver stress, family issues, relationship struggles, and adjustment disorders/life transitions. In addition to my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Social Work from Michigan State University, I am also Board Certified in Oncology Social Work and have extensive training in oncology, terminal illness and medical distress.
Whether your goals are immediate or long range, we will work together to create a plan to make positive changes to your life. The key to those changes is a client-centered, solution-focused collaborative approach in which you learn to take control of your life through self-empowerment.
Together we will focus on the real you; your strengths, resources, resilience, core beliefs and coping skills. You’ve spent a lifetime listening to others. Isn’t it finally time to listen to your own voice?
Please contact Great Lakes Psychology Group and request to schedule with Laurel Martinez. I look forward to meeting you.
