Trying to move progressively through life figuring out who you are and what you value in the midst of seeking approval from friends and family can be exhausting and isolating. This has been compounded in the past years by a global pandemic, halting or slowing social-emotional growth. Anxiety, depression, eating disorders, substance use, and other mental health concerns are emerging from people of all ages.
Counseling can help. Knowing there is someone to come alongside you as you wrestle with the normal changes of life and any extra challenges that appear can bring hope to everyone.
In session, Hannah is person-centered and eclectic, pulling from modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment, Cognitive Behavioral, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies. When working with children, she uses play therapy because through play a child can communicate and express
