My Approach to Helping

"Hi there, I'm Martha! My name is Martha Baldwin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Stockton, California, and working with clients statewide via telehealth. I work with adults and young adults specializing in anxiety, depression, stress, using Person-Centered Approach, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. To help my clients make progress and feel better, in their healing journey." "My approach to therapy is modified based on the needs of the individual client I work with. I most frequently use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person Center, because both modalities help me and the client build a shared understanding of their reality, and allow us to work together to create a path that better suits them."

I have found that my style and approach are a good fit for Spanish-speaking adults and young adults who are dealing with life transitions and adjustments to the many pressures they are dealing with being in another country. This often takes the form of anxiety, depression, and stress. I work to help my clients navigate these transition periods and to build skills to allow them to feel better about themselves and develop a more optimistic view of life. "My communication style is calm, adaptable, and pleasant. I want my clients to feel comfortable speaking with me about anything, and I take joy in my ability to listen without judgment, in a safe and confidential environment."

I decided to become a therapist because I have always wanted to help people understand, that what they were going through in life was not "wearied, or crazy" as well as to lower the stigma that mental health has in the community. Also being a trusted and loyal friend, I have always naturally been drawn to helping people through difficult times. It is an honor to help others through their healing process. My approach to goal setting with clients is all about working together to define what you want to accomplish in our time together. This often starts by building trust between us, and getting comfortable with what it means to be in therapy. Over time, we will work together on objectives and goal setting, as well as your progress.

Our first session together is for us to spend most of our time talking about how you have been feeling lately, and me asking questions to better understand some of the reasons why you may be feeling that way. The first session is about us building an initial connection and helping me get a sense of where we should go from there. Each individual is different, and I like to listen first before assuming. In doing so, I will know what will work best for you to fit your needs, moving forward.
