Hanne-Berit Hahnemann, M.Ed, LPCC-S, LICDC


Professional Background

I have a masters degree in clinical counseling with a supervisory license from Cleveland State University and have many years of experience in private practice in the United States. In addition to my clinical counseling degree, I am a trained couples therapist through the Gottman Institute (Read more about couples therapy here), and hold a license in chemical dependency. My personal background also informs my work as a therapist. As such, as an expat myself, I have a personal appreciation for what it is like living in another country and culture.

Coming to Therapy

I create a safe and supportive environment where you can feel free to explore what is troubling you. In here, you can feel attentively heard and deeply understood. I will ask pointed and helpful questions so that you can increase your own insight and understanding, but I am always kind and supportive and it is of utmost importance to me that therapy is a place where you feel validated and understood. Taking steps to begin therapy may be intimidating, but it is my experience that people feel a sense of relief and hopefulness, and are very glad that they came.
