Hello. I’m Lesley
I know what it’s like to…
Overcome a lot of past adversity.
Never want to get back on the emotional rollercoaster.
Crave stability and normalcy AND want more at the same time.
Doubt myself and feel “not good enough.”
Fear taking a risk only to get hurt, be judged or fail.
Want to live more authentically.
Feel called for more than the thing I’m currently doing.
I spent many years healing myself, body, mind and soul, from all my past traumas. It worked. I healed. I created a beautiful stable life for myself. And then what? What’s next? I yearned for more. I entered the unknown to embody a version of myself beyond what I thought was possible. And so can you.
Right now, you feel you lack the courage, self-confidence and capacity to go after your dreams
I’M THE GUIDE FOR YOU BECAUSE I’VE BEEN THERE, I GET IT.
Hi! I’m Lesley Martín, MA, LMHC, NCC, CLC and I coach high achievers who desire more for themselves to stop letting fear, doubt and insecurity hold them back so that they can create a more joyful, authentic and fulfilling version of their life.
I’m someone who experienced much adversity early in my life. I then spent the next couple decades overcoming it and creating a stable life for myself, learning for the first time the meaning of safety and the comfort of security. I completed my education and began my career. I married a wonderful man with whom I’ve shared the last 20 years of my life.
I spent the past 15 years building a holistic psychotherapy practice helping others overcome their past traumas and create safety and security for themselves. So, I know a thing or two about craving stability and normalcy AND wanting more, and what it takes to create that.
The question for me became, once I moved from someone who was surviving to someone who was thriving, then what? What’s next?
For a long time, this question kept me up at night. That still, quiet voice inside was incessant in its urging:
You’re made for more than the thing you’re currently doing.
You must find a way to have a bigger impact.
You can help even more people.
This is possible for you.
You can do it.
I would get flashes of my potential future self in various scenarios that would come unbidden while I was taking a walk, or running errands, or meditating. I would experience many synchronicities that seemed like the universe was guiding me in this direction, but I was still unsure I could actually do it.
A couple years ago, I decided to heed the call. I launched my coaching practice to continue helping people who found themselves confronting this exact question, the one I knew so intimately.
Taking that step required me to transcend my past and all the ways it had defined me, even up to my current circumstances, so that I could develop the courage, the self-confidence, and the willingness to pursue my dreams from the realm of possibility until they become reality. I realized that, no one else could give me permission, make it okay, or absolve me of my self-doubt.
I needed to do this, even though it made me feel like I was going to puke.
I had to be the example for myself, and for others.
I had to go first.
And here I am doing it.
The same is required of you. And you can do it too.
MY MOST IMPORTANT CREDENTIAL EVER IS HAVING IMPERFECTLY FORGED THE PATH I WILL NOW LEAD YOU ON. But, in addition to that,

I healed my complex trauma (CPTSD), adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, hormonal imbalances, multiple broken bones/sprains/torn muscles and other physical injuries resulting from various accidents, along with chronic body shame, by utilizing a combination of physical and mental therapies, integrative and alternative medicine, holistic healing modalities, coaching, EMDR, NET, mindfulness and assorted spiritual practices to get my body out of the chronic fight, flight and freeze cycle and back to normal regulation and health, so I could then continue to grow, expand and step into the next version of myself.
We are all beautiful works in progress, continually evolving.
And I’m so excited to share what I’ve learned with you.
Because, if I can do it, you can do it too.
