About Martina

Ever since I was a child I found joy in helping others. I was born a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), an empath and an introvert.

 

I hated seeing others suffer whether they be humans or animals.  I was a highly intuitive and analytical child which were not easy qualities to possess in childhood, especially as there was no one to guide me. I saw, perceived, and felt experiences that others did not. It was confusing and isolating. I felt like a freak of nature, truly. Over the years, I’ve learned to manage these sensitivities and grow into these attributes. I like to say that I went from an anxious worrier to an enthusiastic warrior!

 

A college degree in economics led me to a career in corporate sales. And while I was good at my job, it lacked the meaning and life purpose I craved. Serendipitously, I was led to pursue spiritual studies, which offered me the ability to understand how to work with my sensitivities so that I could thrive in the world. 

I spent a decade studying the mystery teachings and becoming a meditation teacher and Master Intuitive. From there, I became an intuitive business coach before obtaining a master’s degree in psychology and advanced certifications in cutting edge technologies and applied neuroscience.

During my career as a trauma recovery psychotherapist I took care to hide my intuitive gifts. I was concerned I might lose credibility, or worse, my license. My reputation might be tarnished, I might lose respect from my colleagues.

In time, I met a remarkable coach and mentor who encouraged me to reclaim my intuitive gifts I had hidden away. In the process, I created coaching and training methods that incorporate all the skills and professions I have enjoyed throughout my life.

It is my passion to partner with high achieving women to develop customized resiliency skills that allow them to express their natural gifts and claim reliable personal power in every area of their lives.

I experience great joy in being a life-long learner. My expertise as a coach is informed by decades of experience as an intuitive mentor and psychotherapist using cutting edge neuroscience modalities.
