David Martin, MA, LPC, EMDR-T

David Martin, MA, LPC, EMDR-T, is a psychotherapist with a private practice in Boise, Idaho who works with individuals and couples, specializing in EMDR therapy. David is a graduate of Boise State University with a Masters degree in Counseling, Graduate Certificate in Addiction Studies, and a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology.

David is a cognitive behavioral therapist who uses a practical, interactive, solution-focused strength-based approach. He provides support and practical feedback, helping you find your individual tools for thinking about life in a new way and developing a wider range of possibilities. David employs a combination of conventional and alternative treatments, drawing on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful. With sensitivity and compassion, he works with each client to help them identify and build upon unique strengths to achieve personal life goals.

In general, David begins the process by listening to what brings you to therapy and gathers information about your background and history. Then, together, you decide on the goals of your treatment. He helps you resolve current problems and long-standing patterns by using methods that allow you to find answers within, leading to changes that meet your goals.

If you are experiencing stress, or a nagging sense that your life is not what it could be, reach out to see how therapy could help you learn about yourself and others and make changes you never dreamed possible.
David’s practice spans a wide range of ages, ethnicities and religions. David has been both volunteering and working with refugees since 2007 and is regarded as a multicultural counselor.

Sarah Wright

Sarah Wright, CM, CBRS, CPSS, CFSP

Sarah has lived experience with multiple diagnoses, either personally or as a caregiver of family members. These diagnoses include depression, anxiety, ADHD, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, ODD, OCD, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia. She is so pleased to be able to use that lived experience to help others and their families improve their daily lives.

Sarah is a senior at Boise State and will graduate in December 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in public health. She is passionate about expanding care to Idaho’s rural communities and ensuring that every citizen has access to quality physical and mental health care. Sarah is very active in local community theater and loves acting and directing as often as her schedule allows. When she isn’t involved in a show, she frequently performs one-man performances of musicals like Hamilton and Waitress, to the dismay of her family. Sarah lives in Boise with her husband, 2 kids, and 2 dogs.

Kimberly Moore, CPSS

Kimberly Moore is an Idaho native. She has always had a strong interest and curiosity in mental health. She is a little bit of a late bloomer, but is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I hope to complete my degree soon so that she may pursue her ultimate goal; being able to counsel at-risk adolescents that are bipolar and schizophrenic with a master’s degree in social work.

Kimberly has been a certified peer support specialist for five years and enjoys it every day. She is a member of various psychology groups such as NAMI. She also has some experience as a care provider manager in assisted living facilities for the mentally ill.

As an Idaho native, Kimberly loves doing things in the outdoors. She likes to go camping, swimming, and biking. Living in Idaho motivates her to have inside hobbies, too. Kimberly enjoys reading, adult coloring, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.

“Have courage. Be kind.”
