Dr. Addie Hanson earned her Doctorate in Clinical Forensic Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She completed her internship at The North Carolina Department of Public Safety in the division of Adult Corrections with both male and female corrections populations. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from The University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Dr. Hanson has experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of clinical needs. She completed clinical internships at an inpatient psychiatric facility for children and adolescents, an academic counseling center, and a correctional facility, while also gaining outside experience in community environments. She has experience with the facilitation of individual, group, and family counseling, as well as the administration of clinical and forensic psycho-diagnostic assessments. She has also collaborated on the research of diagnostic models of personality disorders, and the effects of alcohol on anxiety. Individually, she studied how an individual’s cultural background is integrated and conceptualized in adjudicative competence evaluations.
Dr. Hanson approaches treatment with each client individually and from a therapeutic lens that will best fit the client’s needs, whether it is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, etc. She loves her profession and especially appreciates that she gets to meet and talk with new people everyday!
Outside of the therapeutic environment, Dr. Hanson enjoys traveling, cooking, and exploring the beautiful topography that North Carolina has to offer with her husband, newly adopted pup, Randall, and her cranky, (albeit, very cute) hedgehog, Melvin.
