Lexi Martinez, LADC

Master’s Mental Health Counseling Practicum Student

I am a graduate student and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, working towards my master’s degree in Integrated Behavioral Health with a Youth Specialization minor from the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities. I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Minnesota State University- Mankato. I am currently working at the Child and Teen Medical Center in Blaine, which is partnered with Natalis, as a mental health counseling practicum student.

I have experience with a wide range of clients and working with the community. I have worked in residential facilities, special education schools, inpatient psych units, and co-occurring residential placements. My background and passions primarily focus on children, adolescents, and their families. I am currently interested in working with individuals and their families that are experiencing anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, social challenges, parenting concerns, school issues, oppositional/defiant difficulties, toileting problems, relationships issues, life changes, bullying, and ADHD concerns.

During my sessions it is essential that I learn from, collaborate, and create relationships with my clients. I utilize evidence-based practices like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, solution focused methods, mindfulness, psychoeducation, systemic and humanistic approaches. I take time to understand the client’s experiences and view them as unique individuals with differing needs. I provide a space of genuineness, safety, and support for my clients to explore their thoughts and emotions.

I am working under the licensed supervision of Dr. Jennifer Joseph PsyD, LP.
