Hannah Asis

Mental Health Practitioner and Doctoral Practicum Trainee

Hannah’s priority is to ensure her clients feel heard and understood. As a person-centered practitioner, she maintains unconditional positive regard for her clients. She believes that all behaviors, thoughts, and feelings serve a purpose in helping individuals cope and survive. Therefore, she does not judge these experiences. Instead, she tries to discover, alongside the client, why their tendencies emerged in the first place. Self-acceptance can flourish by investigating the “why” behind beliefs and actions. Hannah strives to help clients befriend themselves and, as a result, develop strong connections, build meaningful lives, and overcome barriers. Hannah employs an eclectic approach, integrating modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Personality-Based Interventions.

Education
Hannah is a Doctoral Practicum Trainee in her 2nd year of the Clinical Science and Psychopathology Research Ph.D. program at the University of Minnesota. She obtained her B.S. in Public Health from the University of North Texas and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to seeking her Ph.D., Hannah served as a Research Assistant at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.

Travis Blaize

Mental Health Practitioner and Practicum Trainee

My approach to therapy draws from a variety of therapeutic orientations, including solution focused and person-centered, emphasizing empathy and collaboration. I believe that every individual has the strength and resilience to overcome life’s challenges. My goal is to support individuals by creating a safe and nonjudgmental space where they can explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Together, we’ll work on building coping skills and ultimately achieve a greater sense of well-being.

I have experience working with individuals with disabilities including autism and am interested in helping those who struggle with anxiety, depression as well as those who are facing some of the difficulties in coping with life’s complexities. Rather than taking a directive approach, my focus is on helping the individual feel confident and in control of their own journey, throughout our work together. I am open to working with individuals 18 years and older.

Licensure & Education
Travis is currently a graduate student at Saint Mary’s University, where he is pursuing a master’s degree in Counseling and Psychological Services.
