She is enthusiastic about improving others’ quality of life - whether conducting an evaluation, utilizing empirically based interventions, spending a session simply talking about life, or scheduling an appointment, every interaction with a client is filled with hope and enthusiasm.
Dr. Martos’s journey to become a psychologist began at the age of 3, when she proudly proclaimed to her parents that she would become a “mad scientist” when she grew up. After being told that “mad scientist” wasn’t an actual occupation, she set her sights on medicine where she hoped to become a pediatrician. However, after one year of majoring in Neuroscience at the University of Miami, she found herself only truly interested and passionate about her psychology courses. She officially changed her major to Psychology during her sophomore year and graduated with her bachelor’s degree in 2004.
In 2007, she completed her master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Miami and then traveled to Tallahassee, where she began a combined doctoral program in Counseling Psychology and School Psychology at Florida State University. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at the Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department in August 2012. She graduated from Florida State University in May 2013 and worked for Miami-Dade County Public Schools as a College Counselor. Although she is dedicated to her career in psychology, she is first a foremost a wife and mother whose interests include music, musical theater, film, and cooking.
