About Me

Hello! I’m Hannah, a clinical social worker licensed in Illinois with 8 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!

Hannah wasnt my first match for a therapist but she was definately the right match for me. Shes very easy to talk to, a great listener, and very prompt when returning messages. I felt like she had genuine concern about my issues and asked the perfect questions to provoc me to come to terms with things on my own, without making me feel judged or insecure. I would recommend her without hesitation. Shes great. 5/5 stars , J.A.C.

Hannah is a wonderful and lovely therapist! I have been attending sessions with her for 2 and a half years now and plan on continuing to attend sessions with her in the future! She has such a great presence, making the sessions feel welcoming and supportive as well as maintains a casual environment where you feel like you are talking to a best friend. Hannah has helped me so much through many struggles and challenges and has guided me in growing into a more confident , happier person. She lend an actively listening ear to the not so good times, asking questions and sharing opinions, and been there through the positive moments. I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist. Thank you Hannah! And, thank you BetterHelp for matching me with her!

Hanna has been a joy to work with. She lets me know when she'll respond to anything I post and sticks to that schedule. She reads everything thoughtfully and responds to my concerns. She encourages me to analyze my situation and think about what I feel and need, which has helped me feel more comfortable with my decisions in life. I've tried a few other therapists with betterhelp and working with Hannah is the happiest I've been with the service.

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.
