Bio:

Dr. Martha M. Libster (“Dr. Martha”) is a clinical nurse specialist psychotherapist who offers holistic health counseling and psychotherapy, as well as gentle remedies, self-care resources, and support. Her primary focus is families with young children who are suffering with behavior, communication, family, or school changes and challenges.

Her specialty is helping infants and young children—in partnership with their parents and caregivers—from pregnancy through age five. Feeding or behavior concerns, adoption, preemies, gifted (fast learners), communication problems: tantrums, hitting, or biting. In child-parent psychotherapy sessions she uses movement and play therapy, such as puppets.

Sessions include solution-focused psychotherapy techniques to achieve personal and family wellness goals. She also counsels on decisions about medical marijuana, dietary supplements, and complementary therapies.

All services include culturally-sensitive counseling, home remedies, mindfulness stress-reduction, education about the energetics of foods, traditional Chinese and Western herbal medicine, and health decision-making support. Tough problems and family crisis are most welcome. She also consults on legal matters involving the best interests of young children.
