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.
Hannah is a certified specialist in the area of perinatal mental health. Understanding firsthand how the pregnancy and postpartum period can greatly affect mental wellbeing, Hannah is passionate about providing resources and care to this population. Another specialty and major focus of her practice is working with adolescents, a population that has a big place in Hannah’s heart. While Hannah is knowledgeable and experienced in treating a wide variety of mental illness including mood/anxiety disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, ADHD, and substance use, at this time Hannah is only able to accept clients in pregnancy or postpartum, as well as adolescents on a case-by-case basis. 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 playing flute and violin, dancing, reading in coffee shops, caring for her miniature pet pig Clementine, and being a devoted single mom to her twin boys. Hannah sees patients ages 13 to 65 years old at CGP's West Lake office.
