The first step is the hardest step and I am excited that you chose to participate in counseling services. I believe that you know more about yourself than anyone else ever will. You possess the power to effect change in your own life. I am excited to walk with you in your journey to a better understanding of who you are, who you invite into your personal circle and ultimately what you want out of life.
My name is Robin Fore Martin and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral (TF-CBT) therapist in the state of Virginia. I earned my graduate degrees from Old Dominion University and Liberty University. I have worked in the mental health and substance use fields for over eleven years. My experience includes individuals from age four years old to ninety-six. I have worked with people in all walks of life to address symptoms of depression, anxiety, self-harm, substance use, trauma, sexual orientation and gender identity as well as family and relationship functioning. I practice a blend of therapies, specifically focused on the needs of each individual. My belief is that therapy should be approached in a holistic manner, treating the entire individual with exploration of the mind, body and spirit. Acceptance of self is primary and provides the channel to move forward with change in a safe and therapeutic environment.
Remember what you are feeling today does not dictate what you experience tomorrow. I appreciate the opportunity to work with you and I look forward to talking with you soon!
