Hi, I'm Hanna (she/her)

I use a relational approach to therapy to support individuals, teens, couples, polycules, and families in their process of self-knowledge, healing, and connection. I firmly believe that because we operate in ecosystems of other individuals and relationships, it’s imperative to address what roles we play, what these dynamics look like, and how they may be interwoven throughout our experiences. 

Our work together will focus on helping you explore thoughts, emotions, patterns, memories, and limiting belief systems that may elicit emotional discomfort or pain. Through processing, implementing coping strategies, and discovering new information about the origins of this discomfort, we can begin to dismantle and heal these limiting belief systems, and relate to each other in more fulfilling ways.

As your therapist, I am collaborative, caring, and trauma-informed. My practice is LGBTQIA+, kink, and poly affirmative, centers a social justice lens, and encourages you to show up as your full self. Throughout our time together, I may utilize tools and techniques from attachment theory, emotionally focused therapy (EFT), internal family systems (IFS), Gottman Method, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and narrative therapy in session.

Fun Facts: In my free time, I enjoy chiming in on new movie/show discourse, dabble in running, and spend lots of time with my two orange cats, Henry and Bernie, who make appearances in sessions every now and then!
