Hanna is a graduate of East Carolina University with a Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy. Knowing early on that her passion was children, she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development with a concentration in ages birth to three. She has ample experience working with children of all ages and their families in the outpatient pediatric setting, as well as in children’s homes, daycares, preschools, and the Special Care Nursery. Hanna has conducted evaluations and treatment for children with a variety of diagnoses including Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Down syndrome, hemiplegia, developmental delay, feeding disorders, dyspraxia, and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. She has extended training and experience related to Sensory Integration, Handwriting Without Tears, the Zones of Regulation/Alert Program, sensory feeding approaches, and Constraint Induced Movement Therapy.
Hanna recently moved to the area from Charlotte and is eager to explore all that the Raleigh, NC area has to offer. In her free time, she enjoys traveling to the mountains, hiking, exploring local restaurants and shops with friends, and spending time with her cat, Bonnie.
Hanna believes that providing therapy that is specifically tailored to each child in their natural environment allows them to truly thrive and reach their fullest potential, as well as facilitates a strong relationship between the child, family, and therapist that further supports their growth. She is enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with your family and to help your child achieve his/her goals in a playful, engaging, and meaningful manner.
