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!

Written on Oct 25, 2022 after therapy with Hannah for 2 years and 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Hannah is the most amazing and supportive counselor that I’ve ever had. After three years, I have grown so much with the help of Hannah that I chose to take the next step and stop therapy. I don’t know where I would be if isn’t for Hannah’s encouragement, guidance, support, the push I needed to take the tools and skills she gave me and applied them to myself so I can be the very best I can be. I appreciate all the time that Hannah has given me and immensely grateful for the help she has given me over these years. I would recommend her as a counselor 100 times over and you won’t be disappointed.

Hannah is a kind, patient therapist with great insight. She’s very supportive and guides me on how I can be a more emotionally mature individual.

Written on Oct 03, 2022 after therapy with Hannah for 1 year and 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

I've worked with Hannah for awhile now and have grown significant respect for her in that time frame. Hannah seems to legitimately care about the things that I'm going through and, in some ways, exceeds my expectations. It's clear that she aims to build and open and honest relationship with her clients. This model combined with genuine care for her clients, and communication skills go a long way to make what is ultimately a difficult process more manageable.

I've had many therapists over the years and Hannah is the first that I've continued with for more than a few months.
