Betty Hanna


About Me

Hi, I'm Betty Hanna. I am very interested and committed to helping people work on their problems and dreams, to have the lives they'd like to live. I am a licensed therapist (LMFT) in California and have worked in Washington State as well. I bring 20 years of experience in counseling, coaching, and teaching. Being in relationship is a courageous act. Relationships are people growing endeavors that can be difficult to navigate at times. I am training in family systems, motivational counseling and working within a Gottman frame. I enjoy working with couples, partners and teams. I take a holistic approach to the work and have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse. I also have a successful career as a leadership and management coach and consultant. I'd love to be part of your journey.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe that judging others and using labels are helpful. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Thank you for reading this. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life.

I look forward to knowing more.

Betty Hanna definitely exceeds the expectations of what I thought me and my spouse would get out of therapy. My experience with Betty has been amazing this far she’s extremely insightful and understanding, her advice and instructions are always helpful for our individual and relationship goals. I would definitely recommend Betty
