Professional statement

Hannah works with young adults who are navigating concerns including anxiety, burnout, depression, academic or professional stress, and relationships. Young adulthood is a turbulent time with frequent changes, life transitions, and uncertainty. She helps her clients bring more balance and stability into their lives.

In session, Hannah teaches clients to challenge their thoughts, reframe self-defeating ways of thinking, and develop a positive perspective. She knows how much juggling young adults have to do to manage the expectations of family, friends, romantic partners, supervisors, and others. Her goal is to provide these clients with a welcoming space to be heard and process their reactions to personal and professional situations. By asking thought-provoking questions, Hannah prompts clients to explore new perspectives, self-identity, and values. As a result, clients build confidence, manage stress, and effectively communicate with important people in their lives.


Message to clients

Are you constantly juggling the expectations of others without considering yourself? Early adulthood can be an exciting but chaotic time, with major life transitions, evolving relationships, and challenging academic or professional responsibilities. These frequent changes and uncertainty can trigger burnout, stress, frustration, anxiety, and depression. Sometimes, we feel overwhelmed by everything we think we need to do.

I provide a welcoming space to process your feelings, explore new perspectives, answer thought-provoking questions, and examine your self-talk. Together, we’ll challenge your assumptions so you can get unstuck and start living your life on your own terms. You’ll gain insight into behavioral patterns that may contribute to your distress. From there, we’ll develop a plan to change your reactions and create more balance in your life, while prioritizing what’s practical and important to you.

Through this personalized approach, you’ll build confidence, manage stress and communicate more effectively, and use your strengths to develop a more sustainable lifestyle with meaning and purpose.

It can feel scary to begin or return to therapy but I am here to support you! The only thing standing in the way of starting this process is reaching out. Do it. Make the investment in your happiness and success.
