About Dr. Charles Martin
Licensed Psychologist Gainesville FL
I am a licensed psychologist in a full-time private practice where I provide psychotherapy, coaching, training and speaking services. Themes in my work include: discovering your true self, and learning to live in a grounded way, with intention, heart, openness, and presence.
The psychotherapy, coaching, and training services I offer are oriented to help you: discover what is essential and authentic in you; work through old pain and outmoded ways of being; address blocks to living and expressing who you are; and find balance and wholeness in your life and relationships.
I will work with you as a partner on concerns of identity, authenticity, life transition, meaning, and career – as well as help you address issues related to family of origin, loss, anxiety, stress, trauma, gender, and sexuality.
Integrating practices from psychology, wisdom traditions, and somatic disciplines has been a lifelong personal and professional interest. My approach to therapy is integral (which includes psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive, and transpersonal perspectives) and also makes use of somatic (body-mind) approaches – which can be very valuable for clients who have trouble “getting out of their heads,” or who want to be more grounded and embodied in everyday life.
Psychotherapy & Counseling
Therapy should support us in living effectively in the here and now AND have room for the deeper mysteries of life. Working through pain and concrete life struggles, living with intention, and keeping an eye on awakening need not be mutually exclusive.
So you may know a bit more about my experience, I’ve worked in organizational, hospital and university settings and have been in private practice for over twenty-five years. In my practice – in addition to providing therapy and coaching – I have many years of experience providing training and consultation to organizations in the areas of leadership, executive coaching, team skills, and building resilience and managing stress. I have also authored publications on the applications of personality type to personal development, counseling and career work, leadership, and communication.
My current work is very much focused on providing psychotherapy and coaching services – and educating people on how to integrate mind, body, and awareness to discover personal freedom, live with vitality, and overcome barriers to success.
