Jeana Martin, MA, LPC
Hello and thanks for visiting Pilgrims on a Journey. My name is Jeana and I look forward to walking with you on your journey. Each person is unique and has gifts and challenges in their lives. Sometimes those challenges become overwhelming and we need others to walk alongside us.
I enjoy creating and holding space for others to explore their own story and heal. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas who works with individuals both in person and online. I am enthusiastic about helping people discover new paths to health and wellness. My approach to counseling is somatic and holistic; I believe wholeness involves all parts of ourselves.
My areas of specialization include: grief and loss; anxiety; depression; pre-marital counseling; trauma and PTSD; life transitions (job, marriage, divorce, relocation; family systems; and counseling for clergy and those in professional ministry. I also have experience working with people who are navigating spiritual issues. Another area of interest is the connection between the mind and body and how yoga and other body movement practices can provide insights and avenues for healing.
Consulting with churches and leaders of faith communities
Training & Experience
I began my education studying psychology and drama at Angelo State University, San Angelo, Texas. After receiving the Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, I received a Master of Arts in Counseling at the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas. During my counseling program, my clinical placement was in a local church and I offered counseling, grief groups and a couples workshop.
In addition to my counseling work, I serve as local church pastor and am a current resident in the Spiritual Guidance Program with the Shalem Institute of Washington, DC. I currently live at the southmost border of Texas and am thankful for the ways I have been challenged to grow and thrive in a diverse setting.
In addition to my professional interests, I enjoy yoga, photography, travel, playing the guitar and am currently writing a book. Pilgrimage is a huge part of my life and I have made pilgrimages to Chartres, France, and have walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain. One of my favorite things is walking the labyrinth and sharing my love of labyrinth with people through retreats and workshops.
