Harm Reduction Therapist- Hannah Schwartz
She/Her/Hers
MA, LPC

I am open to new clients at this time.

I have spent my career serving the LGBTQIAA community, working as a clinician at the Stonewall Project/San Francisco Aids Foundation, and now facilitating group therapy at TPAN Chicago.

I employ a blend of therapeutic approaches, including harm reduction, CBT, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and relational approaches and am experienced with LGBTQIAA individuals, trauma survivors, people who use substances, kinky individuals, and poly individuals.

Common areas of focus in my sessions include: trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, substance use concerns, grief/bereavement, LGBTQIAA concerns, and interpersonal concerns.

I approach counseling with a client-centered and collaborative approach. Ultimately, I believe that you have everything you need inside of yourself to create the healing and transformation you seek in your life. Sometimes our journey takes us off course. We might feel overwhelmed, lost, confused, and afraid. My job is to help guide you through your journey and provide you with any additional skills/tools you may require.

You deserve a space dedicated to supporting you while on this journey. I welcome you into the therapy room. The therapy room is a safe space free from judgement for you to process, explore thoughts and emotions, heal, set goals, and grow.
