Javier Martinez LPC

I am a bilingual, Spanish speaking therapist that provides a safe and empowering environment for the BIPOC community through the use of culturally sensitive interventions and language. I draw on a variety of therapeutic techniques as deemed helpful to the unique needs of each client and I specialize in the practice of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).  I recognize that everyone’s experience is different and I collaborate with each client to help them develop tools to overcome averse circumstances and learn to meet goals. I address the intersectionality of the human experience and life’s challenges so that one can seize more opportunities for healing and growth.

My Story

 

I operate from the belief that all communities deserve access to mental health resources.  Although our current society can bring about particular challenges to marginalized communities, it is one’s willingness to confront these challenges and transform them into action and self-advocacy that can help someone find meaning and purpose in life. It is only then that we can start living as our true authentic selves. 

 

I have devoted my career in counseling to bridge as many gaps as possible to be able to provide services to marginalized communities. I have a passion for working with the BIPOC community, especially the Latine community. 

 

I specialize in clients who are Spanish-dominant speakers and individuals who have been impacted by immigration and acculturation. I primarily specialize in adolescents to young adults who have experienced any type of mood disorder (depression, anxiety, trauma, etc) and I have experience in counseling families as well. I have also helped clients deconstruct the stigmatization of mental health especially amongst men within a BIPOC culture.

 

In working together, my intention is to collaboratively help you find the life you want to live, regain your access to love and acceptance, and expand your experience of a shared humanity.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Latinx/e Mental Health from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
