Christina Martinez is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with six years of practice. She received her Master’s degree in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. In a somatic approach to psychotherapy, mind is not considered as something separate from the body. Rather, it states that a lack of connection between the mind and body can cause anxiety, depression, and other mental issues.

Christina specialize in individual therapy, and provide a safe and welcoming space for you to confidentially discuss subjects that you might not feel comfortable disclosing to friends or family. Her focus is on you. She is compassionate, practical, and direct. She often start sessions by asking what you would like to work on for the day.

She have been trained in somatics: Soma is the Greek word for body. Her theoretical framework is that your unconscious, subconscious, mind, soul and spirit are all located within your body. Emotions can be expressed as body feelings and sensations. She want to work with you to recognize the wisdom that is already inside of you.

She specialize in the treatment of anxiety. Modern life presents us with so many opportunities to worry. Anxiety is an emotional experience that can be debilitating. She use somatic modalities, such as breathing techniques and mindfulness based stress reduction, in addition to cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, to help people tame their anxiety and gain some relief from overwhelm.

Chrsitina treat trauma, and have been trained in EMDR. The memory of trauma can be as traumatic as the event itself; Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an evidence based treatment that alleviates the emotional charge and flooding that can come from the memories of traumatic events.

She welcome the opportunity to consult with you to see if we can work together.
