Who We Are

Andrew Hahn

“I am passionate about helping people live free from suffering, and to have joy and inner peace.
To do this, all you have to do is become aware of, allow, bring your attention to and accept everything that you’re experiencing. When I and my clients have done this, I’ve experienced and witnessed healing that I would have thought impossible when I was being trained. Sometimes, the things I have seen seem dramatic and to border on the miraculous. I have also witnessed the long and arduous work of people resolving deep-seated fears that they had believed couldn’t be changed and come to peace with inner and outer pain that they had not been able to handle. The path of healing is to be committed to growth and evolution so that ultimately we can master everything. I believe this is possible for all of us, that we can create a world free of suffering.” —AH

“Life Centered Therapy provided me with a way to understand and accept people’s behaviors and ways of being with much less judgment and greater empathy and understanding. It continually invites me into a worldview that allows me to see behavioral patterns and suffering in the context of evolutionary change, helping me to make meaning of my experience and the world in general. Most importantly, it provides a simple, efficient, powerful framework to help alleviate our human suffering.” —
