After earning a Bachelor’s Degree from Georgia State University in Fine Arts with a minor in Psychology, Hannah’s career in the mental health field began with her work as an advocate at the Partnership Against Domestic Violence. As an advocate, she was able to impact the daily lives of survivors. In her work at the shelter, she was able to lead group sessions on mindfulness and self-care, manage the safety and needs of clients, and work towards helping them build a better future. Her work in helping to positively influence the lives of others also led her to positions working as a child care provider; an opportunity that taught her much about early child development and care.
At Georgia State University’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master’s Program, Hannah excelled in her studies; graduating with honors and becoming a member of Chi Sigma Iota International Honor Society of Professional Counseling. Her internship with Emory Hospital Group’s Behavioral Health Services gave her the opportunity to work in a clinical capacity with a clientele that were experiencing severe mental health challenges. She finished her program at Georgia State with a focus on integrating expressive therapy techniques and extensive training in play therapy.
Hannah’s experience and dedication to her clients make her well suited to working with all age groups, though she specializes in Childhood and Adolescent Disorders, Trauma Therapies, Suicidal Ideation, Crisis Intervention, and Play Therapy.
Hannah is working under the supervision of Terri Abraham, MS, LPC, NCC, MAC, CPCS.
