Hi, My name is Elena Martin. I am a Licensed Professional therapist in the State of Alaska with over 10 years of experience providing counseling services to youth, adults and families. I worked in variety of settings including residential treatment facilities and outpatient treatment programs in Alaska. I worked with families on relational conflicts, parent-child issues, parenting, major life changes, mental health therapy and substance abuse.
My essential belief is that each individual has the power to create positive changes toward personal transformation in order to live healthy and fulfilling life. I was born and raised in a Russian family and I take into consideration cultural, spiritual and religious dynamics that play a critical role on self-identity. My counseling approach emphasizes dignity, confidentiality and respect for every individual.
I believe that effective parental style is a critical component in developing healthy relationship between parents and children. I am offering parenting counseling to understand the nature of relational conflicts within the family, as well to learn effective parental practices. In couple counseling I recognize the importance of developing the skills that are necessary for effective communications and enjoyable time together.
My qualifications include Licensed Professional Counselor (State of Alaska), Chemical Dependency Counselor II (State of Alaska), and Master Degree in Psychology (I graduated from the University of Phoenix in 2011).

I also have experience in Relationship issues, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD

Elena has made my marriage so much stronger and better and I have no words to explain how much she means to me. She has put in time and effort to make ME personally, better and stronger. She understands me 100% and she feels my pain or my happiness with me. I will continue working with Mrs. Elena even if things are great in my marriage or within myself. I am at loss for words to express how much she means to me and how much she’s helped me. Thanks Elena, my family and I are extremely grateful for you and all of your work, time spent and help!
She totally saved my marriage! Such a huge help in my time of need. Quick and thoughtful responses. Would definitely recommend her! Thanks so much!
