Dr. Paulina Martinez, PhD, LCSW

A light green background with a white border.

I have been a psychotherapist in private practice for more than 20 years. Also an esteemed faculty member at Florida Atlantic University. I employ a broad range of techniques and strategies when working with adults and children  as well as couples and families. My approach integrates the blending of cutting edge science based methodologies along with contemplative mindfulness based modalities, as well as energy healing and bio-energetics. I am also certified in neuroscience wave technology in the treatment of insomnia, depression, anxiety and substance dependence disorders. In addition to my work with the general population and the most widely reported emotional and mental disorders, I have extensive experience working with the LGBTQ populations.

I am happily married, reside in Fort Lauderdale with two spoiled rescue dogs. One is an emotional support animal and works alongside me at my practice.

I am fluent in both English  and Spanish.
