As a board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Hannah embodies a philosophy of holistic care, based on the principle that health of the mind and body are strongly intertwined. Her approach is to understand and appreciate all aspects of a person, focusing not only on client concerns but also on strengths and abilities to reach optimal wellness. Hannah believes that natural empathy, compassion, and intuition form the essence of psychological healing, and this is what her practice is based on.
One of Hannah’s specializations is perinatal mental health, as she understands firsthand how the pregnancy and postpartum period can greatly affect mental wellbeing, and she is passionate about providing resources and care to this population. Other clinical specialties include mood and anxiety disorders, as well as issues pertaining to adolescents. Hannah strives to create a collaborative relationship with each client that is nurturing, motivating, challenging, and authentic, and that leads to achievement of goals and positive change.
Hannah graduated with honors and received her Master of Science degree with a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner specialization from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. Previously, she attended the University of California at Davis with a double major in Psychology and Music, as well as Azusa Pacific University for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Before moving on to her Master’s degree, Hannah spent seven years as a Registered Nurse, primarily working with psychiatric and high risk antepartum/postpartum patients. Hannah is a member of Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing, National Society for Collegiate Scholars, and the American Psychiatric Nurses Association.
Hannah maintains work/life balance by enjoying her time playing flute and violin, dancing, reading in coffee shops, being a military spouse and a mom to her twin boys, and raising two Nigerian Dwarf goats!
