Hanna started her career by providing support to children, youth, and parents navigating complex challenges including intimate partner violence, family conflict/violence, and parenting issues by providing support through the development of life skills, communication skills, parenting skills, and mediation. She has experience working with children, youth, and adults experiencing a range of issues such as mental health challenges, relational issues, and life transitions.  She has worked with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, addiction and substance misuse, grief, and trauma. Hanna will work alongside you to support you in unearthing your strengths, healing old patterns, and developing your skills to guide your path to connection and healing. She is trained in Solution-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioural, and Emotion-Focused Therapy and practices through a trauma-informed, empowerment lens. She views mental health as
an important component in our overall health and well-being and counselling as a tool that can provide support in moments of crisis but also throughout our everyday lives. By integrating mindfulness with psycho-education, Hanna will support you in navigating life’s ebbs and flows. 

Hanna is passionate about working with individuals with concerns related to: relationships, parenting and attachment, life transitions, grief, trauma, and anxiety.

Outside of work, Hanna enjoys painting, reading, and spending time with loved ones and her dog.
