Caitlin Martinez, MS, LMFT
Caitlin relocated to Las Vegas, NV upon completion of her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas, Austin where received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and completed research in the areas of stress, bullying, and social interactions. In 2009 she began working in the Las Vegas community with children in adoptive and foster care. Her work with the children at that time was focused on behavioral interventions to aid in adjustment and healing from trauma, while simultaneously working with and training parents who often struggled with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. This work allowed her to collaborate among a team of social workers, therapists, advocates, and families, inspiring her to gain more education in mental health to better serve the Las Vegas community. Caitlin received her Master’s in Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Since the completion of her Master’s, Caitlin has worked with a wide range of clients and presenting problems – focusing on healing from trauma, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-harm, family conflict, and grief. She has experience working with children, adults, the elderly, and Spanish speaking populations. Her therapeutic approach is client-centered and collaborative, as she believes that the client is the expert of their experience, and works to develop a strong trusting therapeutic relationship, built on empathy and compassion. Clients who seek help from Caitlin can expect to be treated with dignity and respect. She believes deeply that there is a need to shift the conversation around mental health care and addiction to reduce the stigma associated with seeking help. At some point, in all our lives, we need help – seeking that help is truly an act of self-compassion and strength.
Caitlin is married and has four children. When she is not practicing therapy, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, reading, painting, and hiking. She is originally from La Quinta, California.
