Martin Hemsley
LMFT

After successfully pursuing a couple of different careers, it became increasingly clear to me that my passion and strongest area of gifting lay in the area of counseling. So back to graduate school I went. My experiences have led me to the conviction that it is never too late to make the changes that can lead to a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

At a previous agency, I spent over a decade working with children, adolescents, adults, and families with some of the most severe mental health and relational issues in our service area of Los Angeles. That experience led me to believe that every individual is capable of greatly improving the quality of their life if they are willing to invest the time and effort in understanding who they are and the true nature of the problems they are facing. I've found that the most notable improvement tends to occur when clients commit to implementing conscientiously the plans of action discussed in therapeutic collaboration designed to address the obstacles to personal growth and the maladaptive patterns of thinking and behavior that lead to relationship dysfunction and underfulfillment of true potential.

I have had the privilege of witnessing many dramatic transformations in people's lives which is one of the reasons I love this profession. I cannot guarantee that I will make all your problems disappear because what eventually happens in your life is primarily dependent on what you decide to do, for example, with the insights and strategies you will be exposed to in therapy. What I can guarantee is that if you determine to make the necessary effort to resolve the issues that brought you into my office, I will be there fully present with you and walk with you every step of the way to help you see what may be difficult for you to discern on your own, using a tailored therapeutic approach or some eclectic combination adapted to your particular circumstances, and to motivate you to reach the goals in your power to achieve. I look forward to commencing this exciting journey together with you!
