Martie J. Biller, M.S.

Martie J. Biller, M.S.

Senior Psychological Examiner

Since Martie Biller worked in the educational system for 10 years with kindergarten students, 4th graders, and students with reading difficulty, she is especially interested in helping children with adjustment problems.  She has worked with children in abusive situations to work through guilt, misplaced shame, and anger. Women who have been in domestically violent or emotionally complex relationships have been an area of focus.  She is interested in how women may feel the need to repeatedly prove themselves. The order of society and culture affecting the family is also pertinent to Martie. She has worked with adult men and women with specific issues with anxiety and depression.  She believes in conservative therapy which places emphasis on improving skill levels. Medication is a specialty of MD and other medical providers but can facilitate good results in tandem with reality-based therapy. Martie believes therapists need to have core values, but not impose on the client.  Rational thinking and rational skill sets is the “problem-solving” end goal. Faith is not denigrated, but encouraged as the individual is mind, body, and spirit. Clients who are not faith-based are respected.
