Martha Householter, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor


Martha enjoys working with teens, adults and couples.  She has witnessed success with clients recovering from losses, trauma and abuse.  Other interests include depression, anxiety and spiritual issues.  As a CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) Candidate, Martha employs Dr. Patrick Carnes’ 30-task model to assist individuals struggling with compulsive sexual behaviors.  She also works with spouses and family members experiencing betrayal trauma. 



Martha believes the most effective therapy takes place within a therapeutic relationship of authenticity and respect.  She takes an eclectic approach to counseling that combines insights from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic theory, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  Martha’s goal is to partner with clients in their quest for healing and growth, tapping into the grace, hope and transforming power of Christ.  Martha earned her Master’s in Counseling Ministry from Lincoln Christian Seminary in 2001.  She is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.

“I so enjoy the uniqueness of each client.  To me that means each one deserves a tailor-made approach to meeting his or her goals.”
