Kaji Martinez, MA, CMHS, LMHC – Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a private practice licensed professional counselor serving clients in all of Washington.  All sessions are currently virtual.  As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.

I am passionate about working with those who are ready and eager for change.  I look forward to helping you gain a better understanding to your life as a whole.  I want to help you figure out if your relationship is right for you, and what your next step is in life.  I am here so we can figure this out together.

Treatment Approach

field pathI use a variety of approaches to address my clients unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of Cognitive-behavioral therapy that is integrated with Attachment theory and Positive Psychology. We then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.

Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
