    Hannah has years of experience working in helping professions and is passionate about having the opportunity to walk with individuals and families through their darkest hours, times of uncertainty, change, crisis, and personal/relational development. She gravitates towards a mixture of Solution-Focused and Emotion-Focused Therapies. Her approach to therapy is validating and authentic with a pinch of humor. She is experienced in working with families, youth, and children through navigating anxiety, depression, familial discord, and unprecedented times.
