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, and 7 of those as a school counselor, I 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 am currently trained in Brainspotting and Gottman Marriage/Couples Counseling.
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, couple, or family.
Tammy Martino, LPC
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.

Hi! My name is Kellie Hayes
I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor and I’m so glad you’re here!
I work with adolescents (12+ years), teenagers, and adults who are wanting to address old thought patterns, belief systems, traumatic events, and who want to feel good again!
I am a great listener, storyteller, joke teller, and human who loves to enjoy life here!
I can provide therapy that is meaningful, tailored specifically for you, and where you can be YOU. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).
I feel counseling is personal, moving, and an opportunity to look at patterns that served/protected us before….that maybe aren’t so helpful now.
More about me: I’ve felt the impact of therapy first hand and I believe that everyone is able to benefit from therapy! As you can see below, I never miss an opportunity to highlight Harry Potter. The books helped me through particularly difficult times and I am ever grateful for the novels themselves.
