Professional statement

Hannah is a therapist devoted to helping individuals, children and families heal and grow. She works with clients on issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, major life transitions, trauma, and relationship issues. Her areas of expertise are mindful parenting or parent coaching, women’s issues, and maternal mental health.

Since earning a bachelor's degree from Williams College and a master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, Hannah has had the opportunity to train in a variety of settings and work with various groups, from those struggling with chronic mental illness and homelessness, to couples working through major life transitions; from leading mindful parenting groups for parents and toddlers, to supporting women with maternal mental health. Extensive training in the model of mindful parenting, and then becoming a mother herself, has given Hannah spec insight into working with all clients. 

Maintaining empathy, understanding and compassion are the core principles of Hannah’s therapeutic work. Her approach is warm, supportive, collaborative and direct. She helps clients in becoming “unstuck,” through addressing difficult emotions and feelings, and processing challenging experiences. Within a safe environment, clients can explore their own histories to gain insight into how their past may influence their present. This cultivation of a deeper self-understanding leads one on the path to growth and long-term change. For parents and families, she also provides tools and techniques, cultivated from neuroscience, attachment theory, psychodynamic theory and developmental psychology, to encourage healthy emotional development in children and to foster healthy child-parent relationships. This approach helps parents work through challenges mindfully, with love and with confidence.

Hannah respects and values working with clients of all ages, from varying cultural, ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities.


Message to clients

In this busy, face-paced world, where we are inundated by information and so much is asked of us by our jobs, relationships, families and communities, I’ve found it is incredibly beneficial (but often difficult) to prioritize time for oneself. Therapy offers a chance to give yourself a pause, to slow down, to reconnect with yourself, and to take a deeper look at your experience within a safe and supportive environment.

For many, simply making the decision to seek therapy is a major first step, and one you can feel proud of. Life can certainly have its peaks and valleys, and throughout it all, therapy can help one navigate these experiences. In sessions, we will work together and at your own pace. I will support you in facing issues that feel painful, overwhelming or confusing, and to make meaning of these experiences. I will help you access your own internal strength and resilience as you take steps in the healing process and in the challenging, yet rewarding, journey of change.

Finding a good fit with a therapist can sometimes take a little time and effort. I encourage you to reach out with any questions you may have about me or the therapeutic process, and to see if we might be a good match.
