Professional statement

Hilario Martinez is an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Granada Hills, CA. Hilario specializes in helping individuals whose trauma continues to haunt them, even though they’ve tried to move forward in their lives. Their trauma manifests itself into anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionism, and other harmful behaviors that leave the client feeling exhausted and frustrated. Hilario helps clients who constantly deprioritize their own mental health because they feel scared of what they’ll uncover should they open up.

Hilario ensures that each session feels comfortable and welcoming to his clients. He builds a strong trust with each person so they feel like they can be vulnerable and talk about their feelings without judgment. Hilario practices evidence-based therapy modalities that treat trauma, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Clients learn the skills they need to control their emotions and feel less overwhelmed in their day-to-day lives. He also supports them as they challenge their self-critical thinking. Hilario empowers clients to transform their lives into the lives they envision for themselves.

Hilario earned a master's degree in Marriage & Family Therapy with a Specialization in Trauma from Pacific Oaks College. He has over 7 years of experience supporting clients and brings a warm, empathetic style with her into every conversation. His goal is to release clients from their thoughts that provoke daily negative experiences and to alleviate mental health symptoms.
