Connie Martin Ph.D.

I have over 20 years of experience as a clinician specializing in insight-oriented and solution-focused therapy. I am currently working as a private practitioner with clients that are addressing a broad spectrum of concerns. My areas of expertise include depression/anxiety, relationship concerns, life transitions, and geropsychology.

I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including hospitals (inpatient and outpatient), a community mental health center, college counseling centers and a skilled nursing facility. As a result, I am well prepared to work with a variety of concerns on a short-term or long-term basis. I have received extensive training and supervision using techniques from insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapies. I integrate these techniques to meet the unique needs of the client.

I have also taught graduate level courses at Loyola University Chicago including Counseling Skills, Theories of Psychotherapy and Counseling and Supervision of Practicum.

my Philosophy

I believe that your emotional and psychological resilience is vital to your overall health, quality of your relationships, and self-growth. Your counseling experience is a collaborative effort in which we work together to address the defined problem area. It is my job to help you gain insight into your concerns, develop a personalized plan to make changes and implement the plan. I will work hard to facilitate the process by providing a genuine, supportive and interactive therapeutic relationship.

Seeking out therapy is a proactive step toward feeling better. Working together, we can forge a path to your emotional wellness.
