Eve Martin, LMFTEMDR Therapist
Eve Martin is a native Los Angelena who previously worked as an Emergency Response Children’s Social Worker for the LA County Department of Children and Family Services for 6 years. This experience gave her first-hand knowledge of effective crisis intervention and insight into the dynamics of substance abusing families and their children. This experience has continued to serve her throughout her career.
While working for Kaiser Permanente in the Department of Addiction Medicine with adults, adolescents and families, she became certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 2004, a technique for resolving trauma and other debilitating emotional states. She is also certified through the Grief Recovery Institute as a Grief Recovery Specialist since 2008. Eve continues to facilitate and conduct educational classes, parenting, teen, multi-family, family education, self regulation, relapse prevention, day treatment, grief recovery and early sobriety groups.
She is currently the Departmental Clinical Case Manager at Kaiser for all acute in-patient clients providing diagnosis, treatment and discharge planning. She also participated in a domestic violence fellowship at UCLA in 1997.
Eve’s clinical philosophy is one of pragmatism sprinkled with humor, based on treating each client as an individual with specific needs and empowering clients through education as well as introspection. She works with each client to better understand and resolve challenges in their lives, whether they require short-term intervention or longer-term treatment. By utilizing complementary therapy approaches and techniques along with a positive alliance with each client and colleagues, she works to transform and rework significant emotional experiences and family issues that may be holding clients back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Eve continues to support philanthropic endeavors by holding a board member position for The LEAP Foundation. She is excited and happy to bring her experience and expertise in EMDR to serve the clients at The Canyon.
