Hannah Brents is a LICSW with a virtual therapy practice in Massachusetts. She works with adults of all ages. Many of Hannah’s clients come in to address anxiety, trauma, life transitions, existential questioning, and relational difficulties. Hannah is particularly passionate about serving young professionals and millennials.
Hannah offers two different approaches to therapy, manualized or ongoing. Manualized treatment is highly structured and time oriented, for example lasting 8-15 weeks, with the option to discuss continuing treatment afterward. Under this model, Hannah acts as a guide and educator in the beginning as you work to develop new skills and techniques. As you become more comfortable with this style of treatment, the roles begin to shift as you take on more leadership in sessions.
Individual, ongoing therapy is a supportive space for you to carve out time for considering important questions that generally aren’t given the time or space to consider. Some of these questions might be: about meaning, how you can wake up (generally) excited to get out of bed in the morning, what does it mean to be human, who are you and who do you want to be, what are your values, is your life living up to your ideals.
Hannah's style is warm, supportive, and goal-oriented. When clients first start therapy, you will work together to understand what your primary concern is and what your goals for therapy are. Hannah is trained in Positive Psychotherapy and is an Approved Provider for Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). She completed her 200-hour yoga certification in 2016.
Hannah received her MSW and MTS from Boston University. She has worked at local inpatient psychiatric units and in an organization specializing in animal-assisted therapy. Outside of private practice, she loves traveling and exploring new places with friends and on her own. This practice is permanently virtual.
