Trauma / PTSD
“Compassion is the idea that something else is possible and you are worth that possibility.” - Gabor Mate
Growing up in a large family inspired her to pursue interests in human connection and how internal and external relationships impact mental and physical health. Her family inspired her interest in understanding addictions, depression, and eating disorders. She has a special interest in the one who bears the symptoms and the ones who love and care for them most! She graduated from BYU Idaho in Marriage and Family Studies and has devoted her time to strengthening her family and families in the community through family life education with adults, teens, and children.
As a student therapist, she is committed to compassionate collaboration and curiosity without judgment. Hannah believes that struggles make us human and that sometimes we need help navigating challenges, some of which may seem unbearable and difficult. She understands that it takes courage to seek help, and this first step is the beginning of thriving instead of surviving thus enabling the best version of ourselves to emerge and step forward.
In her free time, Hannah enjoys adventures with her family and friends, especially if it involves mountains, skiing, hiking, camping, or anything in the water. She loves a good book, long walks with her husband, and meaningful conversation.
