Trauma often endures when "severe emotional pain cannot find a relational home". - Robert Stolorow
Emotional wounds are both created and healed in relationships. Hannah believes the therapeutic relationship can be a place in which clients find emotional safety, gain courage to explore their emotional pain with curiosity, and integrate the wounded parts of themselves back into wholeness. She endeavors to collaborate with clients in their healing process by helping them acknowledge their wounds, attend to their body's expression of deep emotions, learn to let their wounds become places of deeper connection with themselves and others, and move forward with hope.
Hannah’s background includes over a decade in overseas and local ministry and almost a decade in the corporate world. She welcomes people coping with a broad range of challenges, including relational conflict, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, acculturation issues, spiritual/identity issues, ministry burnout, grief/loss, and trauma. She has a heart for working with families as they navigate life transitions, including adoptive and foster families. Additionally, she is Gottman Couples Therapy Level 1 certified and enjoys working with couples.
