Ash Martin, Operations and Finance Manager
Ash Martin, LMSW, is a psychotherapist at Blanton Peale Counseling Center and a trauma therapist at the NIP’s EMDR Trauma Treatment Center. Her clinical interests include intimacy and relationships, gender-expansive identities, vectors of oppression and power, spiritual and metaphysical aspects of experience, and trauma-informed professional spaces.
Ash has over 10 years of experience running operations and facilitating programs in arts-based nonprofits. Since 2014 she has worked every beat at Young New Yorkers and is proud to have grown with the organization as it evolved from a grassroots startup to a robust, city-wide mainstay.
Ash earned her Master of Social Work at Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, and her BA in writing at Eugene Lang College at The New School. Prior to joining YNY, she served as the assistant editor at Brooklyn-based literary magazine A Public Space. A multidisciplinary artist, Ash is excited about: exploring the limitless possibilities of the five-string banjo; designing stylish garments that solve functional problems; and composing comical psychoanalytic essays in her head as she walks endlessly through the five boroughs.
