Israel Martinez, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Montclair
Prefer help from a therapist who is also a part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community? Or worried that most therapists will not truly understand you or that you will have to censor yourself in therapy? I had these same concerns and they motivated me to become a psychotherapist and life coach who could help others like me. Whether you are looking for short-term solutions or more in-depth therapy, we will work together in a safe and relaxing environment to discover and actualize the solutions you need in order to live a more fulfilling life.
I have been working with the LGBT community on a professional basis for over ten years. I began my mental health work at the NYC Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project, and enhanced my experience with clinical positions at the NYC LGBT Community Center and Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC).
While I do have an office in Montclair, NJ, some may prefer the convenience of online video sessions. Contact me to arrange an introduction over Skype where we will ensure your comfort in using video conferencing for therapy before beginning any actual sessions.
