“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” – John Kabat Zinn
We are all human with human reactions. Experiencing unpleasant thoughts and emotions can sometimes feel like the worst thing in the world. Hannah Hunsberger encourages individuals to embrace their innermost thoughts and feelings in a safe, judgment-free space. Through self-exploration and evidence-based practices, Hannah is committed to helping her clients develop mindful awareness to best support them in creating rich and meaningful lives.
Hannah believes that all individuals have their own personal road map within themselves to lead them towards a fulfilling existence. It may take time to find it, amidst the pain and suffering that we all have experienced, but it is there. Hannah approaches the therapeutic journey with patience, empathy, and non-judgement, while providing concrete tools to use along the way.
