Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Play Therapist, Clinic Associate
Kind, validating, empowering
Hannah has provided trauma-informed care to children, teens, and adults for nearly a decade. As a trained EMDR and Brainspotting therapist who works through an attachment lens, she provides sound care for clients of all ages in a compassionate environment conducive to healing and growth. Although Hannah is easy going and kind, she is unafraid to sit with you and/or your family through the challenging work of therapy.
Realizing her natural ability to connect with children, teens and their parents, Hannah invested in the supervision and training necessary to become a Registered Play Therapist in 2017, along with additional training in Pediatric EMDR. Her child clients know that “Hannah helps me with feelings, problems and worries so that I can feel better.” They even report having some fun in the playroom! Through play, Hannah offers children a safe, caring and creative environment that allows them to process challenges, heal from trauma and thrive. She provides attachment work with children under 2 years of age with a parent or caregiver present. At ages 3 and above, a child may be seen individually or with a caregiver based on their presenting issues and therapeutic goals.
Hannah has experience and enjoys working with pre-teens and teens on issues including, but not limited to, adjustments, self-worth, body image and healthy relationships. She often works with parents on what to expect and how to navigate the teen years, with the tension of providing both independence and boundaries.
Adults will find Hannah provides a non-judgmental, secure environment that will allow them to challenge old patterns and behaviors to find new perspectives. She specializes in perinatal mental health and working with new parents, trauma work, grief and loss, including birth trauma and pregnancy/infant loss, blended families, adoption, anxiety, fear, behavioral issues, attachment disorders, depression, religious perspectives and trauma, childhood trauma, and life transitions.
