I started my career at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate in Belmont, Massachusetts, where I primarily worked with those suffering from bipolar and schizophrenia as well as serving as a member of the hospital’s Patient Family Advisory Council.
All of us are born inherently valuable and that never changes. Unfortunately, things like depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD and addiction may have us questioning that truth. We often become our own worst critic especially at a time when we need encouragement, guidance and perspective the most. Since 2011 when I began working in mental health my primary mission has been to challenge the negative self-talk, that only keeps us in a downward depressed cycle. My approach is rooted in person-centered therapy along with cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, experiential therapy and EMDR depending on the client’s needs.

My interest in counseling was first awakened by the Nietzsche quote, “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” Moving from China to the U.S., alone at age 18, I experienced tremendous difficulty with the transition. I began to experience significant social anxiety and felt separated not only from my home country, but also from the truest version of myself. Through therapy and self-reflection, as well as a focus on my "why" for moving, I found my way back to myself and to a more fulfilling life. This experience eventually led to a passion for helping others overcome difficulties and find a sense of purpose in their lives.

I believe that all of us have suffered from feeling that we are not in control of our lives. When that experience persists then our instinct to protect ourselves can push us into patterns of behaviors that range from bad habits to behavior that damages relationships and threatens our physical and mental health. I help people by focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses, to build supportive relationships with themselves and others, and to help them see themselves as unique and worthwhile persons. We do this together through a therapeutic relationship.

My name is Hannah and I am passionate about working with teens and adolescents as they navigate the stressors that come with growing up. This could present in a multitude of ways consisting of emotional regulation, exploring sexuality/identity, navigating transitions in school, conflicts with family and peers, high acuity depression or self-harm, or living through parents divorce/separation. Additionally, young adults exhibiting symptoms of PTSD and complex trauma who are ready to process and return to their life before the trauma are another sweet spot of mine.

It's important to work through these events instead of pushing them down under. They always have a way of resurfacing in the least helpful ways and at the most inconvenient times.

Every intricate detail of your life tells a major story. Since childhood we have been embedded with ideas of who and what we are.

I have unique experience supporting people who are finding it difficult to care for themselves while they take care of others. This includes helping professionals experiencing secondary trauma exposure and burnout, family members caring for those with serious forms of mental or physical illness, and parents managing life changes such as pregnancy, birth and child-rearing. I'm experienced in treating mood disorders and psychotic disorders in inpatient and outpatient settings but I believe that treatment should be directed by your goals and strengths rather that just a diagnosis.

Psychosis Therapists

What’s the most effective treatment for psychosis?

The most effective treatment for psychosis is coordinated specialty care. In this model, a team of professionals works with a patient to address all aspects of the underlying disorder. This approach incorporates individual or group therapy, employment and education support, family support and education, medication management (which often involves low doses of antipsychotics), and case management to facilitate problem-solving as needed.

When should people seek treatment for psychosis?

People should seek immediate treatment at the earliest indication of psychosis. Symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, disorganized or blocked speech, and agitated body movements. Early signs that a person may be developing a disorder that will lead to psychosis include suspiciousness of others, memory problems and distractibility, an inability to think clearly, rapid or nonsensical speech, withdrawal from friends or family, aggression toward others, and sensitivity to bright lights or noises.

What if psychosis is left untreated?

Without treatment, psychosis can have significant repercussions, including injuries, job loss, homelessness, financial or legal trouble, ruptured relationships, and suffering for the person and their family. While early treatment for psychosis often yields the best results, there is no point past which it becomes useless to seek treatment. At any point, treatment can make a difference.

How do I get someone else to seek treatment for psychosis?

It’s extremely difficult to watch a loved one suffer from hallucinations, delusions, and other elements of psychosis—sometimes exacerbated by their fears of treatment. Have a conversation with them in a quiet space and maintain a calm, supportive tone. Share your concerns about behaviors you’ve observed, suggest treatment, and explain the potential benefits. Listen carefully to their responses. The person may not be ready after one conversation, but with time, they may come around.
