Hannah has over a decade of experience working with individuals and family members whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse, and several other addictions, and she has personal experience navigating through the many struggles and obstacles that addiction can create within relationships. She enjoys implementing her extensive knowledge of the brain and its functions into her work and ensures that she stays up to date with the latest research. Hannah has an extensive background working with clients who struggle to cope with symptoms of anxiety, depression, disordered eating, inattention, sleep problems, mood disorders, personality disorders, and a variety of traumas (including traumatic brain injuries). She enjoys working with individuals who are feeling a loss of identity, recently going through life changes, and those who are seeking to find their purpose.
