About Hannah Curtis, LCSW

My style is conversational, with an emphasis on making you feel comfortable. When working with clients on life challenges, I provide innovative ideas and alternatives grounded in common sense. I’m compassionate and non-judgmental, but I’m not afraid to speak the truth. Clients praise my ability to say things clearly and in the spirit of support.

My key specialty right now is communication, especially effective and authentic truth telling. I write all about confident communication strategies at hannah-curtis.com. Boundaries and saying no without guilt are another key interest. I have a passion for working with other helping professionals such as social workers, teachers, therapists, doctors, and nurses, to reduce stress and burnout.

I’ve worked as a therapist in Portland, Maine since 2005. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Maine, I hold a Masters in Social Work from the University of Michigan and a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College.

In 2006, I completed training in EMDR, a comprehensive form of therapy used to treat trauma and other issues. I’ve used EMDR to help many clients transform old patterns, and I actively continue my education in this modality. Learn more about EMDR.
