Hello! I’m Hannah, a clinical social worker licensed in Illinois with 7 years of experience. I have worked with clients of all ages in individual, family, and group settings. I believe that forming a secure therapeutic relationship is essential for the client’s success. Some specialties I work with are: depression, anxiety, mood disorders, interpersonal relationships, abuse, and trauma.
My counseling style is friendly, open, and collaborative. I recognize that it is not an easy task to ask for help, or to share certain thoughts and feelings with another person. My approach utilizes a combination of different therapeutic interventions tailored to each client’s need. I am versed in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, among several other modalities. I believe in helping my clients unlock their fullest potential and discovering their ability to overcome challenges they encounter.
I look forward to working with you!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

I wasn’t sure about counseling but when I spoke to Hannah, she was very understanding and respectful and I can’t believe how much I’ve opened up to her in such a short period of time. She’s doing a great job.
She´s great, I feel comfortable with her since day one.
Hannah is phenomenally compassionate, caring, and respectful of her clients. Working with Hannah has helped me significantly, and I feel comfortable recommending her services to anyone.
Hannah is extremely caring and thoughtful. She made me feel comfortable from day 1. I feel SO much happier than a couple of years ago, when we started. Largely due to Hannah's encouragement and insight. Forever grateful to her.
Hannah is an excellent therapist. She listens very well, provides guidance when needed, and always validates my emotions. Hannah is also always willing to adapt the format of our sessions to my schedule and circumstances, so I always know my therapy will continue even when my situation in life shifts.
Hannah is brilliant, really compassionate, empathetic and understanding. She has really helped place things into perspective! She is always encouraging and sensitive and very professional!
Hannah is great about remembering the details of what my concerns are and I feel like she is truely invested.
She’s also great about following up when I haven’t replied in a while.
Hannah feels relentless in her mission to help others and does so with a smile. In a conversation that can have much darkness, she never seems to fail at saying the right thing or making the right joke to keep things light enough to be productive, while understanding and respecting the gravity of the topics she is working with. She meshes with my personality incredibly well and I couldn't be happier with her service so far.
Hannah's incredible. Listens to me, hears my concerns, and addresses issues in a way I would never think to. Hannah's helped me learn more about myself in 6 months than I have in my previous 29 years.
Hannah is lovely! So warm and kind, her messages put a smile on my face
Working with Hannah has been incredibly helpful and cathartic. She is there when I need her. She asks pointed questions that really make me think and be introspective. I have come a long way in knowing myself better and how I approach situations differently...in a great way!
Hannah has been an extremely supportive and helpful therapist over the last few months, and I would highly recommend her! I am so appreciative of her abilities and understanding of my chaotic ups and downs.
Not only was she very nice and understanding, but she still liked to joke around and keep things light so that not everything was doom and gloom. She asks how you are doing and likes to know your interests. I really loved her. She made it feel less like a complete stranger was telling me how things were, and more like a friend trying to help out.
I have recommended this service to two friends after only a few weeks of participating. Hannah has been extremely kind and understanding to me. She listens to my thoughts and feelings very carefully, and always provides very meaningful responses that have already helped me. I came to BetterHelp in a time of need and Hannah has been absolutely amazing. I am thankful that Hannah is my counselor!
I have already recommended this app and counselor to many people. It’s convenient, more cost-effective than regular in-office counseling and allows for more flexibility with busy schedules.
Hannah has helped me deal with some of my anxiety at work and with some situations at home as well as many other personal issues I deal with every day. I highly recommend Hannah to anyone needing guidance, understanding or just someone to listen to their concerns.
What a wonderful, sweet and supportive counselor!
