Martha has an incredible talent to teach complicated material in a digestible way. Every time I have heard Martha present, I have implemented what I have learned in my sessions right away.

Kelly Scharver, Couples Counselor–Virginia

Martha is so generous and welcoming with her information and abundant resources, experience, online seminar leadership, and knowledge.

Dian Rains Allen, Ph.D., MFT, LPCC–Vallejo, California

Martha is a consummate professional  and dynamic teacher and speaker, with an amazing breadth and depth of knowledge about work with sexuality and couples. I am so thrilled she’s offering a workshop for therapists about gaining competency with non-monogamy and poly relationships, because this is such a growing need and it’s so critical that we therapists respond to it from a place of information, awareness and understanding.  Martha’s work is really one of a kind and I am so excited to continue to learn from her.

Katherine Waddell, MS, LMFT–Northampton, Massachusetts

Martha’s seminar at the 2018 Couples Conference was a worthwhile and engaging learning experience. Martha is obviously clinically skilled and knowledgeable about polyamory, and she kept the audience engaged with each other in their thinking and learning. Her warmth and openness encouraged participants to share professionally as well as personally.

Ann Langley, Ph.D–Redwood City, California

What Martha teaches about poly is such important information for all therapists to learn. It is clear that she stands out as a specialist in this area of work. Our profession needs her expertise at a time when there are few trainings to address this issue.
