Kelvin Martinez, MA, AMFT is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT124195) working under the supervision of Dr. Janice Nishiyama (PSY16545). He received a Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and comprehensive clinical training at AIDS Project Los Angeles where he worked in depth with adults, couples, and groups from a diverse range of life experiences.
As an existential therapist, Kelvin collaborates with clients to address their mental health priorities while also cultivating meaning, depth, and intentionality in the process. His clinical experience includes working with clients through issues related to life transitions, sexuality, aging, religious trauma, anxiety, depression, relational conflict, grief and more.
From years working in trauma-informed community mental health, Kelvin has experience with clients dealing with issues related to addiction, mental health crises, complex trauma, chronic illness, as well as various social oppressions. Kelvin recognizes each client as the expert of their own experience - your race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability and class experience will be treated with honor and respect as significant assets in therapy.
Kelvin’s existential perspective is also particularly well-suited for exploring clients’ personal experiences with meditation, climate grief, socio-political anxiety, psychedelics, and evolving spiritual or intentional practices.
