Martha B. Marshall

M.A., LPC, owner of Wild Basin Wellness

Martha Marshall is a licensed counselor for individuals and couples looking to improve their sense of wellbeing and relationship skills. In addition to talk therapy in an office, her creative approach to change might include nature as a co-therapist: a walk outdoors under the oaks, or even a paddle boarding session on an Austin lake to help get in touch with the deeper, inner-knowing and strength we all forget sometimes. Her goal with clients is their return to balance, new perspectives, and a welcoming of their whole, wise soul. Martha presents workshops on the mind-body connection, mindful self-compassion, and functional family dynamics. Martha leads outdoor meditation experiences for groups, such as first responders, military, and medical frontline workers, often with Operation Get Out. She is NOLS Wilderness First Aid certified. Martha is an Acudetox Specialist licensed by the Texas Medical Board to treat addictions.
