Hello, I'm Dr. Hannah Moss. I am an experienced counselor and psychotherapist specializing in trauma, depression, and anxiety. I serve adolescents, young adults, and adults. My clientele includes all races, genders, and sexual orientations. Throughout my career, I have supported clients to effectively manage self-harming behaviors, low self-esteem/confidence, and negative self-image. I have also supported clients who are exploring and processing their gender and sexual identities.

 

I apply a developmental and attachment theory lens to help you understand the important relationships and attachments in your life, which impact who you become. By processing these complex relationships and attachments, we can work towards identifying patterns and forming new ways of thinking and coping.

My counseling approach is person-centered, focusing on your strengths, individuality, and personal growth. I tailor counseling interventions to holistically support your needs. This includes understanding pivotal life experiences, relationships, and attachments, and addressing the physical storage of emotions in the body. By understanding how your body stores and manifests memories and emotions, we can design more effective counseling interventions and help you feel in control.

 

Starting your counseling journey can be intimidating and scary. Deciding to open up to a stranger takes courage. My mission is to create a space where you feel safe exploring and processing complex personal experiences and mental health challenges that cause distress.

BACKGROUND

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the District of Columbia and the state of Virginia. I received my Ph.D. in Counseling and Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The George Washington University (GWU). 

 

My clinical experience is complemented by 8 years of academic research focusing on attachment and trauma. My dissertation examined the protective effects of sibling relationships and attachment styles, for adults struggling with multiple developmental traumatic experiences. As adjunct faculty at GWU, I incorporate my knowledge of attachment and trauma into my teaching curriculum.

I have supervised clinical experience in multiple settings. I completed my Master’s clinical internships at the George Washington University, Community Counseling Services Center, and at a public charter high school in south east DC. I completed my doctoral clinical internship at the Gil Institute for Trauma Recovery and Education. Additionally, I have training supervising Master’s level clinicians as they become counselors. After my doctoral internship, I was subsequently hired at the Gil Institute as a counseling resident where I have been able to continue my specialized postdoctoral training in trauma and attachment work.
