About Me

Hello, my name is Nereida Martinez and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in the state of Texas to provide psychotherapy services. I have over 14 years of experience as a therapist and over 20 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in different settings including a faith-based organization, community clinics, the criminal justice system and in private practice. I believe my experience in these diverse settings has helped me understand individual, social, cultural and spiritual concerns in a more meaningful way. I have helped individual adults, teens and children cope with, heal from and fulfill their goals related to depression, anxiety, adjustment to life changes, crises of faith, trauma (PTSD), ADHD, parenting, relationships, and other concerns.

My goal as your therapist is to guide you, support you and encourage you to take the steps needed to meet your goals and overcome those obstacles in your life. I provide a wholistic approach to therapy, taking into consideration that spirituality and faith are important factors in your life. I will not claim to have studied theology, but I was raised in a Christian home, participated actively and in leadership roles in church youth groups, and continue to learn about Christianity while trying to maintain a positive relationship with God. I will pray with and for you, if you like. I will use techniques and modalities from different types of therapies and focus on providing a spiritually-centered, accepting and safe environment during our sessions.

Congratulations on taking the first step. I look forward to working with you and walking with through your journey of change, self improvement and healing.

She really listens and follows up when I’m really down. Her calming voice always helps too.
