Kristin M Martinez, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Whittier
Being lonely sucks. We all feel it sometimes- relationships or not. You put in work, maybe work a full time job, maybe work all day caring for the household ending the day with a sense of being disconnected. The underlying issues of loneliness can be deep, and maybe you've been waiting for the right time to reach out. I'm glad you did.
I specialize in working with women, teens and couples who are dealing with loneliness, depression, trauma, bullying, and relationship issues.
I use an existential perspective utilizing narrative and story telling. Stories have power, and how we tell those stories affects our outlook, and subsequently our decision making. I work to help shift your story by working to bring an awareness of underlying psychological and existential themes and functions.
