Licensed Professional Counselor
Kate Martin, M.Ed., LPC-MHSP
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Mental Health Service Provider in the State of Tennessee. This means that I have a Masters degree in Counseling and have met Tennessee's state requirements to provide mental health services. I received my Master's degree in Counseling from Vanderbilt University and have worked extensively in inpatient treatment settings, outpatient clinics, school settings, and private practice settings. I began my counseling career as the primary girls' therapist at a residential school for youth in state custody before transitioning into the role of primary therapist for the Eating Disorders program at a residential treatment center. I then worked with children and families struggling with mood disorders, psych disorders, eating disorders, and trauma in an outpatient clinic. I've had training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing,) TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,) DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy,) Experiential Therapy, and Art Therapy. I am a member of the Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselors Association, the American Counseling Association, and the National Board for Certified Counselors. I have a special interest in working with eating disorders, addictions, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, and women's issues. I am equally comfortable working with adolescents as with adults, and have a strong personal commitment to being culturally competent with all populations.
