Michelle Martin, Licensed Professional Counselor LPC, is a private practice licensed professional counselor serving clients in and around Arlington, Texas, as well as online throughout Texas. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change for you, a safe place where you can learn and develop the skills needed to navigate the difficulties of life. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and help you achieve your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
I use a variety of approaches to address my clients unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and EMDR therapy to move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.
Healthy coping skills greatly impact mental health are also incorporated into the psychotherapy process, such as emotional regulation, distress tolerance, resource development, stress management, and physical awareness. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
