Carole Coffey Hannah EdS, LP, licensed psychologist, was one of the initial psychologists at St Paul Children’s Hospital: Midwest Children’s Resource Center (MCRC), an inter-disciplinary clinic specializing in the assessment and treatment of child abuse and trauma. Carole’s therapeutic approach is strongly influenced by the developmental impact of trauma and stress on our brain, mind and body.

It is an honor and a joy to partner with individuals as they journey towards healing and restoration. I work primarily with children and adolescents, as well as with women with unresolved issues of trauma. In addition to specialties in the treatment of trauma, depression, and anxiety, my clinical interests and competencies include parent-child relationship issues, adoption and attachment issues, Eye Movement Reprocessing and De-sensitization (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT).
