About Hannah...

Hannah Jones, M.Ed., ALC, NCC

(Under the supervision of Heather Parker)

Pursuing a career in counseling has been about engaging my own story and the struggles I have faced, as well as creating a safe space for others to do the same.  When friends and family ask what drew me to this profession my responses come easily.  First, I want to meet people wherever they are.  Too often we tell ourselves that we must show up in a way that is “expected” or “appropriate” rather than believing we can have the freedom and agency to be authentic in our brokenness.   Just as I want to practice authenticity in my own life, I want to invite my clients to that as well.   I am also passionate about being with people of all ages who are searching to find their voice - and to know how to use that voice in a healthy capacity.  Finally, I believe it is such an honor to walk with others as they explore the bridge between despair and hope which can be a lonely path when attempted alone.  

I enjoy being with a wide variety of clients including - but certainly not limited to - children, adolescents, trauma survivors, and to those seeking pre-marital or pre-engagement counseling.  I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Liberty University and completed my Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health from the University of Montevallo.  I am trained in Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) which is an amazing modality of therapy utilized to facilitate healing from traumatic events.  As a Certified IASIS Practitioner (, I also provide IASIS MicroCurrent Neurofeedback (MCN) for our clients at Waterstone Counseling & Consulting.  Early on in my own journey, I completed a Stress Management Coaching Certificate through Light University and the American Association of Christian Counselors allowing me to help clients explore how toxic stress may be impacting daily wellbeing.  I am also a Certified PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator, have earned my certificate in QPR Gatekeeper Suicide Prevention in 2021, and am a Certified SABRE Personal Safety Instructor.  

Outside of work, if I am not spending time with my husband, family and friends, I am most often, reading, journaling, hiking, kickboxing or exploring my world behind the lens of a camera.
