Acuity Counseling Therapist Bio

 

Hannah Tanaka, MS, LMFT

Individual and Relationship Therapist

Hannah enjoys working with older teens, young adults and couples, in particular exploring healthy relationships, intimacy and sexuality. She firmly believes that everyone can benefit from counseling. Hannah will help you uncover your own strengths and incorporate new ones, to build the life you are seeking. Most importantly, she works to make sure that counseling is a safe space to explore, challenge, process and grow.

Working with Teens and Young Adults
Being a teen and transitioning into adulthood is challenging under the best of circumstances, particularly as you balance being a child and an emerging adult.  Maybe no one understands or listens to you because you’re “too young to get it”. Maybe trauma is surfacing for the first time or you feel disconnected from your friends.  Hannah will help you build skills for managing challenging times and will support you in exploring your sense of self. She is excited to help you discover for yourself what it means to have healthy and meaningful relationships and what your dreams for the future are.

Working With Individuals
Sometimes life is exhausting and stressful. Everyone needs a little extra additional support when things get tough. Maybe a crisis is happening or the stress of work is building up or you just want an outlet.  Hannah will help you gain insight and develop, or even rediscover, skills to navigate the challenges life throws your way to help you feel like your most authentic self.

Working with Couples
Every relationship takes work, and sometimes knowing where to start can feel overwhelming.  While no relationship is perfect, maybe you feel like you’re speaking different languages, having the same fight over and over, or are struggling with sex and intimacy.  Unresolved trauma can surface and make it difficult to connect. Maybe you want to build on the strengths you already have in your relationship.. Using a blend of Emotion Focused Therapy and Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Hannah will help you and your partner(s) explore ways to connect, create shared meaning and have more effective ways to communicate.

How I can Help
As a systems trained therapist, Hannah seeks to look at clients as a whole, paying attention to how your environment, early relationships, marginalized identities and previous experiences inform the presenting issue.  Pulling from specialized training, as well as years of experience in community mental health, she uses an integrative approach of DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to find what works best for you and your journey of healing.  As a biracial therapist, Hannah also has experience in deconstructing privilege and oppression in its many forms and seeks to help you regain power and control in your life.
