About Dana Martinez

My passion is to help people in all stages of life grow and heal. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and it is an absolute gift from the Lord to help people and be a part of their journey.  Since high school my dream was to be a counselor.  I attended undergraduate at Texas Christian University and Grand  Canyon University for graduate school.   

I am married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have four amazing children. I am a Christian and believe my relationship with Jesus is the foundation that leads and guides me in all of these roles. 

I utilize a Christian worldview and am willing to incorporate any level you are comfortable with in therapy. Reaching out and starting therapy can be difficult and scary and my hope and prayer is for you to feel at peace from the moment we meet.  I specialize in helping client heal from trauma and anxiety and learn how to help the brain work for you and not against you.  I also work with various mental health issues and diagnoses and believe our work together will created positive change.

Recently, I became certified in Integrative Mental Health which allows me to also help clients find and utilize holistic tools and integrate this in therapy.

 

About Sarah Walsh

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Communication & Psychology from Texas A&M University. I graduated from Southern Methodist University with my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate licensed to practice in Texas supervised by Jennifer Madere, MA, LPC-S.

It is true that life can be challenging, and sometimes things happen that are out of our control.

These things impact our ability to experience the wholeness the Lord desires for us. We are not meant to navigate these trials alone. I believe that our past experiences shape our thoughts, fears, and beliefs. As such, it is important to reach out to the appropriate support when we need it. The expert on you is you, and I will walk alongside you as you explore your needs, seek healing, and work toward flourishing.

I provide counseling for adolescents (12+), parents, and adults and strive to cultivate a safe

space for your growth and exploration. I have and continue to seek specialized training in

working with teens, parents, and trauma-informed practice. I utilize a person-centered, whole-

person approach (mind-body-soul) and have experience working with anxiety, depression, life

transitions, vocational/relational discernment, and transitioning out of PHP/IOP. Sometimes

this looks like managing symptoms, like exploring boundaries or self-esteem, and we will work together on what that means in your life. If your faith and spirituality is important to your healing, I am comfortable integrating that into therapy.
