Dr. Jill Hanson

About Me

My trauma and attachment focus includes having written the Trauma and Attachment Guide for Adolescents and the Trauma and Attachment Guide for Therapists (Hanson, 2011 available on Amazon). I utilize these workbooks and EMDR Therapy to help people work through and make sense of traumatic experiences and memories so that the past can be in the past rather than interfere with the present.

Education & Experience

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Psychologist (PsyD) and a seasoned mental health professional who has worked in a variety of treatment settings for more than 35 years. My current practice focuses on individuals, couples, and families who are seeking to heal interpersonal wounds and build healthy connections to feel better, function at their best, and improve the quality of their lives.
