She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are anxiety and mood disorders, spiritual and faith based counseling, school refusal, grief counseling, child and adolescent counseling and DBT.

As a child, Martha grew up in family that valued helping others. Her home was often a refuge for people in crisis and she was able to observe her mother counsel and guide these individuals, which inspired her to pursue this work. Her mother later became a marriage and family therapist and was a mentor for her.

In her free time, Martha enjoys cooking and has catered and cooked in restaurants in the past. She is also a writer and studied creative writing as an undergraduate. In 1970, she made a transatlantic voyage on a Swedish ocean liner and lived in Holland for three years.
