Hannah began her career in counseling as an undergraduate student at James Madison University where she studied Psychology. Upon completion of her undergraduate degree, she enrolled in a Masters of Social Work program at North Carolina State University. This led her in the direction of interning at a refugee resettlement agency where she helped refugees adjust to American culture while still honoring their roots. The following year, Hannah continued interning as a clinical social worker at Duke’s High-Risk Perinatal Clinic (Durham, NC), where she met with mothers in all different stages of pregnancy or postpartum.
Hannah values counselor-client therapeutic relationships that center on safety, trust, empowerment and guidance. Hannah believes that counseling is not about changing the person, but rather guiding the client in having a deeper and compassionate understanding of self and behaviors. Hannah hopes to equip her clients with skills that direct them in the path of grace and hope.

There is no way to get through life unless you know suffering, and there is no way to get through suffering unless you have a living hope.
