I have been a Certified Addictions Professional as well as a Certified Trauma Therapist for over 8 years with a focus on providing a compassionate, loving and caring approach to helping clients see their true potential. I provide individual and family therapy for those struggling with addiction to alcohol or substances as well as perform substance and/or alcohol evaluations. Through my own recovery, I have seen how much trauma has affected my life today, and I would like to help people go on a different path.
I attended the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey I received both my BA with a minor in Holocaust and Genocide Studies and a Master’s in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Studying these subjects gave me the knowledge, insight and passion to pursue a field in where helping people how there current behaviors stem from the trauma can leave a lasting impact.
Please contact me for a free consultation so I can better explain my services to you.

Mike MartinezLicensing: Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern
Mike believes that individuals are inherently good. He approaches counseling by helping people realize the strengths they already have to bring about change. Mike focuses on building a relationship with clients in order to better understand them. With a better understanding of the client, Mike can understand the client's perceptions. These perceptions are then explored and challenged with the client at the client's pace. Mike enjoys building a relationship with clients by using humor, spontaneity and creating a warm and welcoming environment. Once the relationship has been established, the individual can feel comfortable and confident to address more personal issues in a confidential and respectful therapeutic environment. Mike has experience working with anger management, parenthood, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and substance abuse in both individual and group counseling settings including teaching the monthly 8-hour Anger Management course at LCS on rotation.
