Elizabeth Hanson

LICSW, Therapist, Minneapolis Site Director

I approach therapy by establishing a strong foundation of collaboration, safety, and acceptance. This involves meeting you where you are, understanding what brings you to therapy, identifying current barriers to healing, and equipping you with tools to be more in control of your emotions in order to experience change. My framework is informed by exploring relational histories, family of origin, as well as the life experiences that have shaped your unique narrative. In addition, I am committed to working with clients who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community. As a queer-identified, cis-gender woman, I believe strongly in honoring all identities and how they intersect with daily life.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker serving adolescents, adults, and couples, experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss, effects of past trauma, issues related to gender and/or sexuality, life transitions, and challenges within interpersonal relationships. I utilize a variety of modalities to inform my approach, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based skills, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness-based techniques.
