Hannah Espinoza Remus, MA,LCPC, AMFT
Lakeview Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Hi, my name is Hannah and I am Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Illinois. I trained both in Michigan and in Illinois. In Michigan, I worked at an elementary school with children who had mood disorders, trauma and behavioral issues which were impacting them in the school setting. I also worked with adults and couples who were struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and marital struggles. In Illinois, I worked primarily with adults struggling with severe mental illness in a community support setting. Their diagnoses included schizophernia, bi-polar disorder, Post- Tramatic Stress disorder, and many others. I use many different therapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfullness, Imago Therapy, Family Therapy, Psychoeducational and most importantly meeting people where they are in their own personal journey.
FOCUS: I attended graduate school at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI in which I received my M.A. in Counselor Education specializing in Marriage, Couple and Family Therapy. This means that I have acquired the experience and education working with families and couples in my training. I have worked with couples and familes with varying problems from infidelity to communication barriers as well as struggles in blending familes. I have also worked with adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, grief, anger management and sexual abuse.
I enjoy working with couples and families and because I love helping each person have a voice in their family relatonships. My main goal when working with families is helping both child and parent better understand each other. Couple work revolves around opening communication and making a safe space to destress the marital relationship. I also enjoy helping couples deepen their relationship using Imago Therapy. I like to work with all different types of people struggling with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, and interpersonal relationships. Because each person is different I use different types of interventions based on your situation as some techniques work better for one person than another. I look forward to helping you reach the goals you and your family may be struggling with.
I specialize in:
- individual counseling
- couples and marriage counseling
- family counseling.
I am available for appointments at the Lakeview, Illinois office.
