About Hannah Yager
Hannah Yager completed a Bachelors of Arts degree, studying Spanish and Development Studies, and then continued onto a Masters in Clinical Social Work with a focus in Couples and Family Therapy. Hannah is a Registered Social Worker with the British Colombia College of Social Workers.
Hannah has experience with a multiplicity of clients, from children to adults, facing a diverse set of challenges; such as, marital conflict, anxiety, depression, divorce, mental health, substance use, health concerns, domestic violence, parenting, grief and loss. Hannah always thought she would work with children and teenagers when she finished graduate studies; however, early on she realized that we are all very much impacted by the relationships that surround us. Hannah discovered that to ignore context is to declare that problems lie within an individual. This led to a new passion for family therapy and working with families to help families heal holistically and not just in part! Hannah continues to work with youth and individuals; however, She is always looking for connections and context in each person’s life in order to better support them with their change process.
Hannah grew up in a large family on Vancouver Island, just outside of Victoria, BC. During her undergrad, she was passionate about language and culture and lived in both Quito, Ecuador and Trinidad, Bolivia, studying in Ecuador and later working on a water project in the Amazon Jungle of Bolivia. These experiences have shaped who Hannah is as both a counsellor and social worker and given her a unique perspective on culture, people, and herself.
Hannah is an active individual and her heart feels most at peace when she is on a river, at the top of a mountain or in the middle of a forest. I believe nature has the ability to help us lose our minds, while we find our souls.
