Lori Martin, MS, LPC-Supervisor
Of all life's difficulties perhaps one that is the most common is the struggle to be authentically ourselves. I believe that as adults we have the important task of unlearning beliefs and ways of being learned in childhood, that don't honor who we are. There are so many ways that we are taught to not listen to our bodies or our own since of knowing that lead us to betray ourselves. I work with people to help them come back to themselves and learn to hear their own wisdom.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor - Supervisor (LPC-S #67402). I completed my Bachelor’s of Social Work and Master's of Science in Counseling and Development from Texas Woman’s University.
I have worked with the Juvenile POST program, Denton County Adult and Juvenile Probation, Denton County Jail, CPS, and Cooke County's domestic violence shelter. I have co-facilitated Bibliodrama groups at Lew Sterrett Jail through Volunteers of America's Resolana program and other local organizations.
I have over ten years experience working with adults, adolescence, and couples in areas of relationships, gender, sexuality, body image, disordered eating behaviors, depression, anxiety, authenticity, anger, shame, and substance abuse. I have been a student of psychodrama at ETTi since 2014 and Bridging Harts Psychodrama Institute since January 2017. I am pursuing training in psychodrama and sociometry to assist individuals and groups using experiential methods. I lead psychodrama groups at Sante Center for Healing as well as at Terrell Counseling. I have training in bioenergetics and body focused therapy. I am also certified in Reiki. I feel that incorporating experiential modalities provides creative solutions where we might feel stuck in traditional talk therapy. Additionally, I enjoy supervising and mentoring new clinicians entering the field.
