Hi, my name is Hannah (or Han). I have been working in the field of mental health for the past several years across several disciplines including residential treatment, inpatient hospitalization, substance use rehabilitation, and crisis counseling. No matter what the position, I found myself deeply drawn to how sitting with someone in darkness can make the darkness feel not as lonely. My job isn’t necessarily to make the darkness go away; in fact, darkness is a part of the natural cycle of life. However, I am committed to creating a space where we can sit with hard things and navigate where to go, together.

Something feels off. Sometimes it’s obvious what is affecting you, but often you’re less certain. Perhaps you have some ideas about what’s wrong, but you aren’t sure how to feel better. Maybe you are experiencing relationship issues, or just feel like you are alone even when you know you have people who care about you. It may even be possible that you are uncertain there is anything wrong at all because you’ve always felt this way - but is it really this hard for everyone? There are many people just like you that could be living happier and healthier lives - they just don’t know how to get there.

During this process, I feel it's essential for you to encounter a non-judgmental, accepting and empathetic atmosphere through which you can work on areas of your life at a pace you feel comfortable with. Additionally, it is my hope that you experience a sense of empowerment and motivation to grow and move towards self-discovery.

I offer convenient evening and weekend appointments. We are all capable of making changes. Setting small goals can lead to larger life improvements. I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life and have seen amazing growth and change over my 17+ years of practicing as a clinical social worker. If we do nothing to make change, life stays the same, with the same problems. It takes courage to look at ourselves and work on the things that drag us down. Together we'll build on your strengths to help meet your goals.
