Hannah Pitman, MA, LPC

Hannah Pitman, Austin counselor
Passionate and energetic, Hannah is skilled in working with children, adolescents, and families to help them heal, thrive, and become more of who they were designed to be. She is experienced in walking with people though trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, separation anxiety, ADHD, school difficulties, fostering/adoption, spiritual struggles, domestic violence, emotional dysregulation, and parenting.

Hannah is a Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) practitioner and enjoys leading TBRI trainings for schools and churches. She is also EMDR trained, and uses EMDR, TBRI, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), family systems, play therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS) or "Parts Work Therapy," and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in her work with children and adolescents. By creating genuine connections, she helps people heal from attachment issues and trauma.

Hannah’s integrative and strengths-based approach has been effective in a variety of settings, such as private practice, state mental health, groups, churches, and non-profits. She particularly enjoys working with children because she values their vulnerability and honesty, and sees beauty in the way they see the world. She feels privileged to be part of people’s stories and to have the opportunity to walk with them on a small part of their journey in life.

Hannah is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from LeTourneau University and loves spending time with her husband and son, and being active in her church. When she is not working you can find her curled up with a good book, watching Netflix, or at the lake with friends and family.
