Marty is a mental health therapist who has been working in the field for over 10 years. He is uniquely qualified to treat patients from all backgrounds, socioeconomic classes and ethnic groups. He provides clinical services, coaching services and self-empowerment techniques. He has a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Florida Atlantic University, a Master of Social Work Degree from Barry University, a Master of Science Degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from Nova Southeastern University, and a Doctoral Degree from Nova Southeastern University.
He focuses on helping people learn about themselves by delving deep into their own psyche. He has been trained in Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Solution Focused therapy, Family therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and various therapeutic approaches that allows the patient to see their own path to success. Marty states, "We all have issues, but my approach focuses on the here and now. After we have determined one’s issues, what can we do moving forward and what steps can be taken to maintain lifelong success. I believe that longevity is the key. This thought process has allowed me to create my own therapeutic approach called, “I.A.M” (Identify, Adjust, Maintain) therapy.
To me, therapy is a lifelong adjustment and maintenance of any problem. Much as with life, therapy is a marathon not a sprint. To truly resolve one’s problems, patience and perseverance must be practiced. Most of us are afraid to look inside ourselves because of what we might find. Trepidation and hesitation limits us from achieving our true potential. Help me help you to become self-actualized and mentally healthy. I also believe that mental health and physical health coincide. Both are necessary for an individual to become truly healthy, so let’s turn your potential energy into kinetic." It’s time to get moving on your path to self-empowerment.
