Do you wonder if therapy will help you get your life back on track? Are you struggling to feel better and more fulfilled…
About Dr. Hanley
There are many things that get in the way of people living more fulfilled lives. Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, troubled relationships, trauma, and behavior problems can cause tremendous emotional pain for individuals, their families, and friends. As a fully licensed Clinical Psychologist I use my training, experience, empathy, and understanding of how the mind works to help create a safe, nonjudgmental space where a collaborative and therapeutic process can occur. The end result is often a fuller understanding of the origins of emotional distress and a new freedom from unsatisfying patterns of living.
