Brandi Martin, LPC PLLC and Associates- Owner

 

My exposure to counseling began as a young child getting to know my school counselor. She instilled hope in kids each and every day. She provided a safe and nurturing environment where kids could be kids.The valuable lessons she taught are still with me today.

After graduating from a small town, south of San Antonio, I attended Texas A&M University in College Station. I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies which lead me to teaching 1st graders and PK-6th grade English As a Second Language students in several school districts across Texas. 

While being an educator was near and dear to my heart, I knew that I was ready to continue my education in Counseling. I attended Wayland Baptist University where I received my Masters in Counseling. I completed an internship working for the SCUCISD Family Support Center where I worked with children, teens, families, and marriages.

 

While completing my masters degree, I had the opportunity to travel abroad with Focus on the Family to educate counselors on counseling techniques.  I also had the opportunity to present at the annual Texas Counseling Association conference on Mind Mapping. 

 

After 15 years in education, my most recent role was being a school counselor. I absolutely loved getting to support students, families, and staff. I targeted the whole child, not only academically but socially and emotionally as well.

 

Being able to offer counseling services to individuals, couples, and families in a private practice setting has allowed me to help others on a whole new level. Something I am passionate about. 

I praise you for considering this journey and I look forward to providing you with a safe and caring environment where you can flourish, find solutions, discover peace, and live in balance as an individual or family.

I am a caring professional therapist with a background in counseling and have fourteen years of experience. I have worked with individuals of all ages, ranging from 3 to 70. I have practiced individual and group counseling with a focus on families. I use a holistic approach to counseling, focusing on the mind, body, and spirit. 

 

I work with children and adults. I provide a safe place where it is confidential to work out problems individually or as a family. 

 

I am a great listener, patient, positive, and kind. I feel that humor is an important aspect in everyday life. 

 

I can provide therapy that customizes what you need, offer support, guidance and confidentiality. 

 

I feel counseling is a collaboration relationship between patient and counselor. I feel a counselor acts as a guide for the individual and facilitates change.  I like to help people progress in their journey to healing. I enjoy helping people grow and develop into their full potential. 

 

More about me: I like to read, play with my dogs, spend time with my family, and watch Netflix.

 

Favorite Quote: God grants me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
