About My Clients
I enjoy working with teens and adults from all cultures and backgrounds. I have experience working with individuals through childhood trauma, sexual trauma, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, cultural identity, perfectionism, and shame. I am passionate about working with folks to reduce shame, symptoms of anxiety and depression, process trauma, and more. Additionally, I assist clients processing anything related to their Perinatal Mental Health journey!
My Background and Approach
I approach counseling from a trauma-informed lens, using techniques from theories such as: Person-Centered, Internal Family Systems, Attachment, Relational-Cultural, Somatic Experiencing, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Cognitive Processing to ease the difficult but rewarding process that is therapy. I received both my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Arts in Professional Counseling with an emphasis on Clinical and Mental Health from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe therapy is best done at the client’s pace, allowing for autonomy, and making room for all emotions, thoughts, and bodily responses. Hannah Joy is passionate about providing a warm, friendly, gentle, and non-judgmental space filled with empathy for clients to explore whatever they would like.
