"Dr. Martin, you helped me in a way that's hard to explain. You addressed the "fear" that was keeping me from living a complete and abundant life. I feel so free now and although life has its challenges, things are not the same and I owe that all to God, for sending me to you and to you, for your obedience to him." ~ T.J.
"Dr. Martin has made a tremendous impact, in helping me understand my strengths and weaknesses. She doesn't solve your problems, she provides feedback and insight, to a point where, during sessions with her, you're solving your own problems and addressing your issues, without even realizing it." ~A.V.
