Hello! I’m Hannah, and I am so excited you are visiting my website. I practice counseling in Brookhaven, Georgia at my own private practice called New Wave Counseling, where I work with children, teens, and young adults. Here at New Wave Counseling, I help each person discover their passion in life and build on his or her internal strengths in order to become the best version of themselves so they can live the life he or she has always imagined.
Through working in a variety of therapeutic settings including psychiatric hospitals, residential eating disorder treatment centers, children’s hospitals, schools, advocacy centers, and private practice, I have gained different perspectives of mental health recovery. Throughout my experience in counseling, I have helped children navigate through their parents’ divorce, assisted teenagers in overcoming depression and anxiety by finding their joy and self-worth, and helped children, teens, and young adults fully recover from disordered eating, body image issues, and eating disorders.
I highly value the therapeutic relationship and am dedicated to creating a trusting, empathetic, and nonjudgmental atmosphere. I view the therapeutic relationship as collaborative, and I truly believe each person has the power to find the best solutions for themselves and cultivate positive changes in their lives. By taking an eclectic approach to counseling through drawing upon many research based theories and techniques, I am able to take an individualized approach for every unique person. I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Person-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness and Self Compassion Practices, Strength-Based Approaches, Positive Psychology, and Expressive and Creative Therapies.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and a Licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator. I received my Master’s of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!) I also have served on the Board of The Atlanta International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) since 2016, and continue to serve as an active Board Member.
