Holly Martinson, M.Ed., E-RYT-200

I have an M.Ed. with over 20 years of experience in the field of education, including additional endorsements in Early Childhood Education, Special Education and ESL. I have participated in extensive training on childhood development and speech & language development, executive functioning, as well as a Multisensory Math training.  I have also completed four levels of training through Mindful Schools.  While I am not a mental health practitioner, I have additionally been trained in the first level of Theraplay, a form of play therapy to enhance attachment and self-esteem.

I am a trauma informed yoga instructor with my E-RYT-200 and studied with YoKid to teach yoga and mindfulness to children and teens.  I currently teach at various community and school settings and conduct special classes in area schools and with local therapy practices.

Due to my partnerships with other local schools, I have successfully completed a state and social services background check and still maintain my active VA state Postgraduate Professional teaching license.  I am happy to provide you with references!
