In addition to her agency work, Martina operates a small private practice and has facilitated a countless number of healing arts workshops with a variety of schools, government agencies, community and faith-based organizations and churches for individuals of all ages and abilities. As an artist-therapist, she believes, as did Pablo Picasso, that "Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life." Martina is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry from Wesley Theological Seminary, with an emphasis in pastoral care and her most recent essay entitled, "Art Therapist? Yes. Minister? That, Too! Ethical Issues That Arise When One Has Dual Roles," was recently published in the textbook, Exploring Ethical Dilemmas in Art Therapy: 50 Clinicians From 20 Countries Share Their Stories. She and her husband, John Efodzi, reside in Maryland .
