Marty Kreuzer, M.S., LCSW, LMFT, LPC has worked as a psychotherapist with Human Development Associates since 1986. He is licensed by the state of Wisconsin as a clinical social worker, marriage and family therapist, and professional counselor. In addition, he is certified as a Diplomat in Sex Therapy by the American Association of Sex Educators Counselors and Therapists, ( AASECT ). Early in his career he worked in the field of addiction treatment in a variety of settings ranging from in-patient and out-patient care of individuals and families, to extensive group therapy work as a consultant to Hazelden treatment center in Minnesota. He authored a cassette through Hazelden press titled, Grief and Loss For Adult Children of Alcoholics. He also consulted with On-Site training directed by Sharon Wegscheider, a pioneer in the treatment of family members impacted by addiction.

For the last 23 years he has been on the staff of HDA, Human Development Associates, here in La Crosse. During his years with HDA he has worked primarily with adults providing individual, couples, and group therapy. He also works with adolescents and their families. While the majority of his work is focused on treating depression and anxiety with both men and women, he has areas of special interest and training that include sex therapy with men and couples, mindfulness based treatment, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and narrative therapy.

He prizes the value of the therapeutic relationship as the foundation of successful treatment. In addition to his work as a therapist he has trained other therapists. He has also provided numerous professional presentations on topics including problematic sexual behavior, secondary post trauma, conflict management for couples, and grief and loss.



You are not broken.

Your life is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be opened.

Your challenge is not to keep trying to repair what was damaged.

Rather, practice awakening what is already wise, strong and whole within you.

Cultivate the qualities of heart and spirit that are available to you this very moment.
