Meet Hannah Barker
Throughout my work, I've found a commonality within each of my clients; most people want to grow, change and become better people, and usually most people already have the wisdom to understand the fix to their own problems. With my companionship as a therapist, I hope to help each of my clients to gain perspective, expand and adapt with psychological flexibility, and consider their own strengths and values. We can improve each aspect of your life as we journey through the changes of life together. Let's respond together to life's challenges!"
