Professional statement

Christina Martinez is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in California, Ohio, and Texas providing sessions via telehealth. Christina tends to work with individuals with eating disorders, addiction, mood disorders, trauma related issues, and life transitions. Many of her clients have found difficulty in navigating their recovery along with life’s daily stressors and challenges, and often struggle in their relationship.

Christina utilizes an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that they can gain insight and identify where positive change can occur. She works with clients to recognize and understand their physical response to stressors and begin to show up for themselves in different more productive ways.

Christina takes a collaborative approach to therapy believing that her clients already hold the answers within them. She provides a judgement-free zone to help her clients feel heard and validated while also being held accountable. Christina has found that by holding this space, clients find insight into behaviors that are no longer serving them and help to replace them with more effective skills.

Christina is a seasoned telehealth provider with almost 5 years’ experience providing therapy via telehealth. Christina offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy fit into any schedule.


Message to clients

Eating disorders and addiction are issues that I have first-hand experience with both personally and within my family. I am familiar with the barriers and vulnerabilities of seeking help for such sensitive issues. My goal is to build trust where you feel free to come as you are and let me help hold space for the tough stuff that is scary and overwhelming to talk about. Together, we will work toward naming these barriers and identifying the maladaptive skills that you have been using so that we can replace them with more effective tools. We will work together to find new strategies to overcome the barriers that have gotten in your way of where you want to go.

I am an ideal fit for clients who want to dig deep while still being held accountable. In my experience these issues cannot be fully addressed when we allow them to stay in silence and secrecy. My hope, is to create a safe place to start the process of shining light on the darkness and together we will find the best path for you.
