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!

I've spent a few months working with Hannah and truly appreciate her for everything she does. It truly feels like Hannah cares about her clients and has really helped shape a new perspective on therapy. My past experience with therapists have been memorable for many of the wrong reasons and Hannah has managed to help where people in the past were ineffective.
I'm really grateful I was connected to such a great counselor, she's so kind, knowledgeable, and understanding.
Hannah is the absolute BEST. I have never found a therapist who actually gets me and my needs until connecting with Hannah. I have made so much progress with her over the last 6+ months and can't speak highly enough of her!
I’ve been speaking with Hannah for a few weeks and she has been so accomodating, thoughtful and supportive. I feel so comfortable every time I speak with her, and it feels like she’s my friend rather than a therapist! I was a little hesitant when I signed up but I am so glad I did!! She’s amazing :•)
Hannah listens and responds with empathy and expertise. Her humor and authenticity come through so well in all of the ways we’ve communicated. I was so hesitant to start online counseling and am so glad I did.
Hannah has helped me understand and reflect on my situations before I act to fast and not think about my consequences, I highly recommend her as long as you’re in the right sort of time frame as her as I am 9 pm while she is 8 am
Although we couldn´t reach a solution to my current problem, Hannah was great through all the time that I had therapy with her. She´s polite, nice and have a specially genuinely urge to help their patients. I completely recommend her :)
Hannah is awesome!! She is really helping me :)
Listens, understands, and responds in the most sensitive manner. She’s a blessing.
Hannah is confident and knowledgeable. She understands what I need and supports me in all aspects of me life. She is an amazing therapist!
Hannah has been an absolute joy to work with. She's such a kind, empathetic and compassionate person and she truly cares about other people. She really listens to and understands whatever it is I'm going through and she never passes any sort of judgement. She asks questions that really stop me in my tracks and make me think. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be working with her and she honestly might be the best therapist I've ever worked with so far.
Hannah has been helpful in the few weeks I’ve been working with her. She listens so well and asks so many great questions that challenge your thinking! She’s provided many worksheets to go along with our discussions. I appreciate her authenticity and passion for what she does!
Hannah is so easy to talk to. She really takes the time to respond in a very detailed and helpful manner. I am very grateful to have worked with her.
Hannah is so good at listening to me and that’s what I really need. Someone who lets me vent but hears the core issues of what I am venting about, not the noise. We have had a couple calls and she has sent me several worksheets that have helped me work through my issues and it just has shown me she really does take an interest in helping me navigate my emotions.
Hannah is great!
Hannah has been a wonderful and supportive counselor. She is so caring, attentive and intelligent and also willing to be very flexible in her approach to fit my needs. I always feel like she's one step ahead in being able to understand my situation, so that she's able to ask pertinent questions and share the insights that are most helpful to me.
Hannah was prompt, open and always willing to listen. She helped me a lot with my anxieties and I am forever grateful to her!
Hannah really made me feel comfortable, validated, and makes me feel like I am in a safe place to open up to her.
I recommend Hannah. She understood my story quickly and she responded intelligently and pragmatically. Plus she's enjoyable.
Hannah's kindness has been a light in a dark time. She listens attentively and actively, allowing one to feel heard and supported. Her professional attitude cut with an altogether human warmth have made for an altogether excellent experience thusfar.
Hannah has played a pivotal role in making my life meaningfully better. I am forever grateful.
Hannah is the best. I don't know what I'd do without her.
After being unsure about counseling let alone not physically having to go to a office, I've found myself opening up to Hannah like she has been my best friend and I've known her for years! She's wonderful.
She’s solid. Love her.
Hannah is the best therapist I have ever had. She is friendly, understanding and supportive. I have made so much progress with her, and she continues to make me feel comfortable and confident in talking to her.
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.
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!
