Hi, I'm Hanna.

If you are in a high conflict couple, you may feel tired, hopeless, exhausted, frustrated of fighting, and wanting peace. However, every time you try to share how you’re feeling, it just turns into a huge emotional, blowup.  The cycle of highs and lows doesn’t have to be this way. If you experience high conflict fights in your relationship, this is where I specialize.

Many long-term couples experience a decline in sexual excitement or struggle with differing levels of desire, leading to frustration and conflict. It's natural to feel disconnected from your partner due to work, kids, or life's demands. Even if you feel connected, you might not be aligned in the bedroom or want to explore new areas.

Sex therapy can help you meet your emotional and physical needs by exploring new desires and creating a safe space to discuss uncomfortable topics.

I hold deep compassion and a special place in my heart for the LGBTQIA+ community, having witnessed firsthand the unique challenges and oppression they endure. You can feel confident working with me, knowing that I will fully support and respect your gender identity and sexual orientation, whatever that may be.

I  have helped many couples pick up the pieces and create a relationship that is stronger than ever after an attachment injury. Through the use of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which is evidence-based and highly effective, I help couples not only heal their relationship but create a relationship that is stronger than ever. 

Whether you and your partner have experienced trauma individually or as a couple, trauma-informed couples therapy can provide a path toward healing, resilience, and revitalized connection. By embarking on this journey together, you can transform your relationship, turning past pain into a catalyst for growth and transformation.

I help couples explore what relationship dynamics are right for them. Monogamy is never a given and can sometimes be destructive to the well being of those trying to force themselves into it. Maybe you are cognitively on board with consensual non-monogamy, but in practice are experiencing fear, anxiety, and even physical pain. I celebrate radical relationship structures, and understand how complex these ways of loving can be to our attachment systems. I can help you create your own unique roadmap to navigate multi-partner relationships.

"Unprocessed fear tweaks behavior, unprocessed fear makes us rigid, unprocessed fear limits our emotional range. Fear changes us, hardens our hearts, puts a veil or a wedge between us and our loved ones. Don't get in the habit of ignoring your fear, because that will cost you something sooner or later.” Kathryn Rheem
