What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. Hi Friends! As a woman of color with a background in DEI work, I am passionate about promoting spaces where one can feel seen and heard, and know that I am committed to understanding and addressing the unique challenges and intersections of identity that my you may face.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Martha Smith is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board-Certified Approved Supervisor with a strong background in working with underrepresented populations, particularly BIPOC individuals and college-age adults. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from McDaniel College and has over 7 years of experience in the field. As a strengths-based and person-centered counselor, Martha approaches each therapy session with the goal of supporting her clients and providing them with new ways of viewing their lives in the present.
