Dr. Martin has worked in the mental health field since 2016, after spending many years as a bedside nurse in hospital settings in both the United States and the Middle East. Dr. Martin shared her passion for education and the medical field by teaching university courses to aspiring nurses. 

Her desire to help others process trauma and grief was enhanced when Dr. Martin became the sole caregiver for her 38-year-old spouse going through the death process.

Dr. Martin’s 16 years of university studies combined with her vast experiences as a nurse, teacher, and caregiver provide her with a valuable skill set, which she delivers with empathy and hope.  

Dr. Martin has traveled to 80 countries and is knowledgeable about international healthcare systems, as well as health concerns for travelers and locals alike. She integrates her international experiences into a unique approach to patient care, reflecting a deep appreciation for the mind-body connection and a profound respect for the person as a whole.
