Hannah is currently not accepting new clients
Hannah’s journey towards a counseling career started in 2013 by serving at a non-profit offering equine-assisted support to children in crisis. Through her work there, Hannah discovered a passion for partnering with children and families in their growth and healing. She had the privilege of serving children ranging in age from 5-18 years old who were facing challenges from a wide variety of life circumstances including: foster care, adoption, abuse, parental divorce, grief, parental substance abuse, incarceration of family members, bullying, self-harm, and suicidality.
Hannah is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate in NC (#12482A). She received a Masters of Arts in Christian Marriage, Family, and Individual Counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in August 2022. She is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), a widely-researched and highly-effective form of psychotherapy that helps individuals find healing from the symptoms of traumatic life experiences. She is currently able to offer this treatment modality to adolescents and adults.
Hannah enjoys working with children through the use of play therapy and values a therapeutic relationship built on safety, trust, and collaboration. She seeks to meet each child where they are at and compassionately walks alongside them and their parents to reach their treatment goals. She also enjoys working with adolescents and young adults, integrating various counseling theories such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solutions-Focused Therapy, Family Systems, EMDR, and mindfulness practices. Particular areas of interest and experience include trauma, mild to moderate depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, family and relational issues, and biblically-based counseling upon request.
Hannah lives in Cary with her husband Tyler and enjoys serving in the kid’s ministry at her church. In her free time she loves riding horses, reading, kayaking, and hiking anywhere with her husband and adorable dog, Lila.
