Dr. Sharese Martin, PhD, LPC
Dr. Sharese Martin began her counseling journey at the age of twelve after witnessing community and family violence resulting from untreated mental health issues and substance abuse. Inspired by childhood traumas of her own, Dr. Martin started seeking answers to problems that existed in her immediate community and later realized that opportunities for reeducation and encouragement existed through the field of counseling.
Dr. Martin believes that reeducation is a life-long process and should respond to one’s season of life. She has served clients of all ages and from various backgrounds. As a therapist, Dr. Martin assumes a holistic and humanist approach that is also influenced by Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems Theory. She considers a range of influences such as: (1) the client’s own motivation and biological environment; (2) the client’s immediate surroundings including his/her family; and (3) the client’s interactions within larger environmental systems consisting of society and culture.
Dr. Martin completed her Doctorate in Counselor Education with an emphasis on autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities at Sam Houston State University in 2016. She received her master’s degree in Counseling at Prairie View A&M University in 2006. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Education in 1997 from Texas Southern University.
