Martha's Counseling gives mental health services to clients in Lawrence, Methuen, North Andover, and Haverhill Massachusetts. Due to the contemporaneous, common family circumstances in these cities, which are the family composition, sometimes with only one single parent, parents working full time and leaving the children in daycare, or after school programs, clients with lack of private transportation and economic stressors, most services are done at the client's home or community places when it is appropriate.
Martha's Counseling has specialized in working with immigrant and poor families. Most of our clients are immigrant kids, or first generation Americans with immigrant parents, many of them living in a chronic survival state. Martha's Counseling believes that in order to get good mental health for these parents and their children, the therapy has to include that they learn their strengths, to have dreams, to see the same opportunities than other children from different economic and social status, have. Martha's Counseling help their clients doing the steps to reach those opportunities in order to succeed. At this point, in clinical language, clients will function much better and won't be clients any longer.
In conclusion, Martha's Counseling has the great professional purpose of serving the community honestly in accordance with it's needs. Here, we do not ignore culture, we respect it. We work within the general culture and the particular family culture. However, with the same respect we help the family or individual client to develop the necessary degree of acculturation that help to develop appropriate adaptive behaviors.
