Professional statement

Hannah Wineburgh is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Brooklyn, NY who works with adult individuals and couples struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, intimacy, and chronic illness. She has extensive experience working with individuals who have Type 1 Diabetes in addition to those who have other autoimmune disorders, especially those with an invisible illness, like Hashimoto’s or Fibromyalgia. She is particularly interested in the connection between anxiety, depression, and chronic illness. Hannah also has experience working with couples on issues around sex and intimacy and communication.

Hannah works from a Psychodynamic framework by exploring what an individual’s experience has been with the symptoms they have, including their earliest memories, what their triggers, and unhelpful vs. helpful ways to address it. She also works with her clients to increase their awareness of both their mental and physical symptoms and how their anxiety or depression is impacting their body. Many of her sessions focus on a client’s childhood and how this has shaped who they are today. She also focuses on helping them develop coping skills, gain awareness of their triggers, and learn what to do when they are in a moment of distress or crisis.

When working with clients with a history of trauma, Hannah’s first priority is establishing safety and a sense of security and trust. She also spends time educating her clients on what Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or complex trauma is to let them know they are not alone and to help them better understand how they can utilize grounding techniques when experiencing distress. Hannah utilizes a number of somatic techniques to help individuals feel grounded in their body and learn how to regulate their breathing and tap into their senses.

Hannah wants all of her clients to feel seen, heard, and understood. She strives to validate everyone’s experience and support them on their journey towards healing and self-acceptance. Both of her offices are conveniently located near the Grand Army Plaza subway station.


Message to clients

Therapy is an opportunity to explore parts of oneself that might be causing distress, sadness, or worry. It allows an individual the time and space to process aspects of their identity that they may be looking to change, the permission to express emotions that might not feel safe to release otherwise, and the ability to recognize patterns in relationships and behaviors over time. Therapy offers the space for greater insight, self reflection, and the ability to come into contact with our most authentic selves. My role as a therapist is to help you navigate life's challenges in providing an accepting and non-judgmental space to process your innermost thoughts and fears. You may be looking to gain a better understanding of yourself and the self-defeating patterns that prevent you from leading your most fulfilled life, or perhaps you are seeking strategies to help you cope with feelings of anxiety, depression, relationship distress, or the impact of trauma. Regardless of the cause that brings you through the door, I honor the courage it takes for you to begin this process and I welcome the opportunity to work together and learn about the unique challenges you are facing. My aim is to to offer you support and insight that will lessen your emotional stress and add to your greater overall happiness.
