Ken Martin, LMFT

Ken Martin's clients and he tell each other the truth as they see it. Their truths likely change over time as they gain more insight and understanding.

His clients and he collaborate. Many problems clients bring to him can be solved in a short time through empathic, rational discussion, or the application of proven techniques. However, they are all the product of a long interaction between their environment and their unique selves. Many problems require a healing relationship with a therapist as well as developing insight and practicing healing changes in behavior.

He do not believe it necessary that clients waste precious time suffering when he could alleviate their suffering by giving them some simple information – for example, about what constitutes “normal” behavior. It is true that most profound change occurs when clients experience great truths and insights about their lives at a deep feeling level, rather than through hearing something he say. Some clients, in order to develop a strong sense of self and feelings of integrity, need to take time telling me about their experiences, goals and dreams. But state-of-the-art techniques, for example in treating anxiety, phobias and obsessive-compulsive behaviors, have been demonstrated to be more effective than traditional talk therapy.
