Hi, I'm Hannah
Curious, creative, compassionate, & knowledgeable
I have a Master's degree in Marriage, Couple, & Family Counseling from George Fox University and an additional certification from Portland State University in Foster & Adoptive Family Therapy. I have provided individual and family therapy for students in an alternative high school program and offered counseling support to parents, youth, and older adults in an intergenerational housing community. My areas of specialty include preteens and adolescents navigating identity and relationships, parents and children struggling to connect, and individuals in helping roles who are feeling burnt out.
If you're interested in my theoretical and philosophical approach to counseling: I tend to practice from a person-centered, Narrative approach. That means that I see you as a complete person, with strengths and stories that make you who you are.
Beyond the office
Outside of my private practice, I'm involved with the community in various ways. I have been an adjunct professor in a graduate counseling program, where I taught courses on diagnosis and group therapy. I am a part of a group practice called Second Growth Counseling, a counseling community creating social impact through therapeutic experiences. I spend most of my Friday nights facilitating therapeutic groups for women who experience marginalization due to houselessness, domestic violence, sex work, and addiction. I'm always curious about ways to think outside the box when it comes to mental health & wellness.
I welcome and affirm all genders, ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs. Unfortunately, my current office is not ADA accessible.
