Adam Martin

MAPC, MFT, DMin

With more than 25 years of ministry experience, Adam has learned that while he may have studied theology in seminary, very few people want to meet with him to talk about theology. They do, however, want to talk about their pain. Wanting to be better equipped for those conversations, Adam began pursuing further education in counseling. Two Masters degrees and a Doctorate later, Adam considers it an honor to help people navigate the emotional distress that often comes with life.

Adam has successfully worked with individuals to overcome depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, and relational challenges. An area of specialty for Adam is in working with couples to help restore marriages that have experienced communication issues, intimacy challenges, and betrayal. Adam believes there is a unique intersection between our pain and God’s presence, and seeks to integrate the timeless wisdom of God with empirically-supported therapeutic strategies.

Adam is married to his college sweetheart Dana, and she is still his favorite person to this day. They are blessed with two adult children, Matthew and Emma. When he is not spending time with family or working, Adam enjoys, surfing, golf, or almost anything outdoors.
