About

As seen on a Sussex Directories Inc site

Hi everyone. I am Tahiyya Martin.  I am honored that you are here.

Growing up I always knew I wanted to work with people. I loved to play teacher with my stuffed animals and dolls. Then life happened and I experienced my own pains. Fast forward and through my pains I’ve had many gains and  wanted to give back to others, help others through their healing, recovery, and shifting process.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate in the state of North Carolina. I specialize in  relationships, addiction, codependency, disordered eating, and step-coupling (remarriage).

I have a special interest working with women on challenges in relationships, addiction, codependency, and disordered eating. As a partner in a step couple I enjoy helping stepcouples navigate the new life whether it is alone as a couple, as coparents, or stepparents. I help stepcouples with making sure they don’t become the statistics  of  remarriages; which we all know is not good for us by the way!!!

I approach therapy with the mindset of  providing a safe place to build a therapeutic relationship that is nurturing, challenging, supportive, and empowering to the client. I believe in providing a safe place for healing, recovery, and shifting. I am an experiential therapist that focuses on listening to your story using experiences, movement, and art to help you find your pain so we can began healing by finding safety and falling in love with self again.

I also provide skills training in DBT using an experiential learning approach.

I graduated from Liberty University with a MA in Human Services: Marriage and Family and Walden University with a MS in Marriage, Couple, Family Counseling. I have worked in the mental health and substance use field for over ten years in residential, community health and outpatient therapy with a diverse population and issues to include ADHD, mood, personality and behavioral disorders, addiction, disordered eating, infidelity, trauma, couple and family issues. I have received training in Seeking Safety, Motivational Interviewing, Experiential, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Systems Therapies, and Gottman Method Level I as well as trained as a Family Trauma Professional by IATP/PESI,

Ask about Walk and Talk Therapy…

Walk and Talk therapy is a therapy approach that involves using talk therapy in combination with exercise and being outside with nature for a relaxed and calming effect. I utilize walk and talk therapy for individuals who are drawn to nature and feel safe talking about their issues while moving.

I truly believe in wholistic healing  therefore my eclectic approach is geared towards healing and shifting the mind, body, and spirit.
