Dawn Belkin Martinez, PhD, LICSW


I am delighted to be joining the Boston University Student Health Services Community!  I was born in Brooklyn, spent my formative years in the Southwest, and came to Boston for graduate school in clinical social work.  I have family and friends living on three different continents and have always considered myself an internationalist at heart!

Prior to joining the staff at BU, I have worked with adolescents, young adults, and families in a variety of practice settings, including a community health center, a hospital, and as a college professor.  I have extensive experience working with immigrant families and adolescents experiencing new transitions; in fact, understanding how social messages and systems impact our mental health is a special interest of mine.  When I am not working, I  can be found cooking, gardening, bicycling, and hanging out with my family and friends.   I look forward to meeting with you!
