Jessie Martinez, MSW, LGSW - Bilingual Therapist, District 197
A Little About Jessie’s Role
Jessie has been working in the human services field for more than 10 years and joined Headway in January 2018. She has previous experience working with a variety of populations, including children aged 6 weeks to 10 years, at-risk female youth of color, low-income housing clients, and Spanish-speakers and members of the Latino community. She has numerous specialty areas, including play therapy, trauma-informed practice, couples and family therapy, culturally-sensitive practice, and Spanish bilingual/bi-cultural therapy. “I hope to build strong, meaningful relationships with students, families, school staff, and community members,” she says.
When she is not working, Jessie likes to write, draw, paint, craft, go thrift shopping, bike, dance, drink tea, and find fun new ways to be active with her family and friends.Back to all team members
