GET TO KNOW your therapist
Hannah Byck, LSW
Hello! I’m Hannah Byck.
I am happy you want to get support for your mental health. Reaching out is the first step! I am a therapist who works with children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with a wide array of issues such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, PTSD, anger management and more. I enjoy working with clients who want to discover and harness their strengths, and be able to joke around when needed! I always love hearing a good joke. Here, you are free to speak your mind and give input in what you want to do in your sessions. My goal is to help you find the skills that you need to be able to help you help yourself.
I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago and am licensed to practice in Illinois. I have experience in therapeutic day schools and residential facilities, including working with children who experienced abuse, trauma and being in and out of foster care. No matter what brings you to therapy, I am willing to help you develop the skills that you need to live the life that you want.
As a therapist, I believe in harnessing your strengths to promote change, the power of mindfulness, and giving you a say in what we do in our sessions. I believe that therapy works best when both you and your therapist are invested in your growth. I want to make sure you feel comfortable in our sessions and can express yourself free of judgement. Everyone is different, and your individual therapy should be based on you and what you need. Whether it is learning how our thoughts are related to our actions and emotions, becoming comfortable with your emotions and expressing them, or developing coping skills, we will tailor it to you and your needs.
MORE ABOUT ME
I love taking my dog to the dog park and playing fetch with him. You can find me cuddling with him at almost any given moment. I also love getting lost in tv shows or hanging out with friends and family. I love being outside when the weather is nice, and walking by the water. I also enjoy cooking dinner every night, mainly any type of pasta!
