Kimberly Martin, MSW, LCSW
Kim Martin joins Anxiety Institute from the Yale University School of Medicine-Cedarhurst School where she provided direct clinical services in a therapeutic educational setting serving middle through post-high school students. In this position, Kim collaborated extensively with school districts across the state, developing IEPs and providing crisis intervention work. Kim also worked as a Clinician with Family & Children’s Aid of Bridgeport, CT, where she engaged in intensive child and adolescent psychiatric services, including conducting intake and assessments, developing and implementing treatment plans, as well as targeting client-specific behaviors. Kim also worked as a school social worker fostering close ties with the community. These connections will be invaluable in facilitating smooth transitions of the clients back into daily academic and social routines.
With more than a decade of experience working with youth and their families, Kim has witnessed the importance of clients developing their own vocabulary and language to articulate their experiences more clearly to themselves, to their family and for purposes of self-advocacy. This insight empowers clients to be an active participant and champion in their own recovery.
From the Team in Greenwich, CT...
“We came to Anxiety institute once a week for the parent support group. One of the most refreshing things was to hear so many other parents going through the same thing we went through. Our kids are all different, yet we all share this common bond of having a child that you want to help, and you didn’t know how. And coming to Anxiety Institute, for the first time we saw we can help our child and we can learn to help ourselves.”
