Hannah Pegram, MSW, LCSWA
Hannah is a North Carolina Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA) and also has her School Social Worker license. She obtained her Master’s degree in Social Work in 2020 and her Bachelor’s of Psychology in 2018 from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She has worked with both children and adults. During graduate school, she interned with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools as a School Social Worker and with Atrium Behavioral Health in Davidson as a Psychotherapist. Hannah also created her own mentor program focusing on empowering 5th grade girls by developing self-love, confidence, ambition, and discussing positive role models which eased the transition to middle school.
Hannah has experience with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, lack of social/emotional skills, domestic violence, low self-esteem, trauma, and transitioning to higher education. She has also worked with children dealing with behavioral and attachment issues, adolescents with autism, adults with suicidal thoughts and mood disorders or personality disorders, and families experiencing homelessness.
Hannah tends to utilize a person-centered strengths-based approach and pulls elements from a variety of modalities such as psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy, logo-therapy, solution-focused therapy, and feminist therapy. Her goal is to guide the client to the root of problems in order to assess what the client’s needs are to be successful. She strives to create a safe-space and make the client feel like an equal. Her approach is meant to empower and encourage the client to use mindfulness to inquire within while also considering outside forces that may be influencing the current problem.
In her free time, Hannah enjoys yoga, gardening, Pelton cycling, reading, hanging out with friends, and of course watching Netflix.
