Hanah Ward, Therapist Intern

Mental Health Practitioner

My journey to becoming a marriage and family therapist started after receiving my bachelor’s degree in psychology. I wanted to further my education in order to implement change in human behavior. I pursued my master’s degree from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. I have worked with both adults and children with a wide range of disorders and emotional disturbances.  My experience working with adults piqued my interest in caring for younger children. Many adults’ issues arise from childhood and  ever learning to appropriately handle stress. I desire to help those little ones adjust and grow to be happy, healthy adults.

I typically take a non-directive approach to therapy pulling from Narrative and Internal Family Systems therapies. People tend to tell their stories that are focused and saturated with problems.  I enjoy looking for those unique moments where a person has made a different choice which led to growth and shows the capability to change. Sometimes, there is a struggle internally and there are parts of you conflicting with another. I can help you navigate those different parts and understand their meaning. By providing a warm presence and safe space we can explore the challenges in your life and make sense of them together.
