Welcome Hannah Freeman,
Hannah enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults, and has experience working with couples as well as with individuals. She has worked extensively with clients surrounding topics including depression, anxiety, ADHD, boundaries and codependency, coparenting, sexuality development, race and racial identity, LGBTQIA+ experiences, social and systemic issues, adjustment difficulties, conflict resolution, crisis intervention, trauma, suicide and self-harm, and fostering resilience. Working through a trauma-informed lens, she takes a person-centered, strengths-based, and solution-focused approach to sessions, frequently incorporating concepts and skills from CBT, DBT, ACT, narrative therapy, and mindful self-compassion. She emphasizes education and is passionate about dismantling stigma in a way that honors the diversity of each client’s culture, perspective, and values. Hannah knows that people are capable of enormous change and growth if they are just given a chance — and if they can grant themselves permission to start. Whether for a few short steps or a long and winding path, she is honored to have accompanied each client on their journey toward something better. Hannah received her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of San Diego. She is accepting new clients our La Mesa location and supervised by Mattilyn Millman, LMFT.
