Hannah Bangs, MA, LPC


Hannah is a Clinical Therapist who sees clients in our Chicago-Lakeview office and via telehealth.

Welcome! I’m Hannah, a clinical therapist eager to hear your story

Perhaps you feel overwhelmed trying to please everyone around you while neglecting yourself, or maybe you want to finally make peace with your body after years of struggle. No matter what challenges you’re facing, you don’t have to face them alone. I can help you harness your strengths, break free of old stories, and live in alignment with your own self-determined values. 

My counseling style incorporates my natural curiosity, warmth, and empathy to create a non-judgemental space for you to express yourself and be understood. Together we will explore the patterns and beliefs that are impacting your life and develop skills and self-compassion to move you toward positive change. 

I enjoy working with adolescents, young adults, adults, and families navigating issues of anxiety, depression, body image, and eating disorders. As a queer therapist, I love helping LGBTQ+ clients recieve the support and resources they need to thrive. Some of my therapeutic values include being body positive, culturally attuned, LGBTQ+ affirming, and trauma-informed. I am personally and professionally rooted in the principles of Health At Every Size as powerful tools for self-acceptance.

Wherever you are in life, your story is still being written. Together we can fill your next chapter with hope and healing.
