What I Do

Hello and welcome! My name is Hannah. I offer trauma-informed psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults with a strong emphasis on an integrative approach towards wellbeing, fostering healing and growth through both the mind and body. I work to empower individuals and families to identify and utilize their inherent strengths to navigate obstacles and interpersonal challenges.

I specialize in trauma recovery, identity issues, anxiety, and depression. I have worked extensively with adult survivors of gender-related violence and childhood abuse, and know that people with these experiences can heal and grow, creating healthy meaningful lives.

How I Help

I believe that a trusting and engaged relationship between the therapist and client provides a safe space for exploration and change. I am genuine and warm, incorporating talking, humor, and mind-body techniques to support others through the challenges they’re navigating.  I work through a collaborative and creative process that integrates various therapeutic modalities, including elements of psychodynamic, mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and somatic-based approaches. By using a compassionate, client-centered approach, I support others in developing an authentic and welcoming sense of self.

As a children’s yoga and mindfulness teacher, I work to help young people use their bodies and minds as tools to navigate their own experience of the world with curiosity and compassion. As a specialist in childhood and adolescent anxiety and PTSD, I utilize mindfulness practices to support children in regaining their sense of agency and embodiment.
