Rebecca Martinez, PhD, HSPP

Licensed Psychologist, Associate Professor, and Founder

“I love it when my clients bravely face life on life’s terms with dignity and grace .”

I have 20 years of experience in academia as a tenured professor in a research-intensive university. I specialize in working with women navigating academia (i.e., graduate students, researchers, and faculty) and mothers balancing work and life. However, I have worked with individuals experiencing a wide range of psychological distress

I work with individuals experiencing a wide range of psychological distress. The concerns I readily address in my practice include:

– Navigating neurodiversity (autism spectrum, Asperger’s) in adulthood, especially for women

– Depression and anxiety

– Life transitions and adjustment difficulties

– Difficulties navigating college/graduate school/tenure track

– Identity issues, including ethnic, racial/multiracial identities, and gender identity

– Experiences of sexism, racism, and ableism (especially in academia)

– Matters of parenting and motherhood, including parenting children with disabilities

– School, career, and employment distress
