Dr. Hannah Joy Roberts
Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY27352)
Feminist/Multicultural Therapist, Empath, Traveler, Nature Lover
I work with a wide range of individuals, from adolescents to those in later adulthood. I also work with Cal Poly students, faculty, and staff to manage the difficult cycles of stress that come with the quarter system. With over a decade of experience working in university counseling centers across the country, I offer college students and recent graduates the support they need to manage difficult transitions.
I work with individuals who value an in-depth, personalized therapy experience. I focus on supporting individuals facing stress, work-life balance, substance misuse, codependency, and trauma recovery, as well as those wishing to deepen relationships. I am culturally sensitive, honoring your unique experience and story.
I’m passionate about the personal transformation that comes through therapy. I love working with curious individuals who are looking to better understand themselves, their emotions, and their relationships. I provide a safe space, while offering a creative therapeutic style. At times, this means engaging newer forms of therapy, such as nature therapy, offered in a serene, grounding beach environment, or video therapy, where we meet virtually, from the comfort of your own home.
I offer expertise, guidance and support to help you create a life that is balanced, authentic, and whole. You have been working so hard to grow and create a full, authentic life. You don’t have to do it all alone. Feel more grounded in your body and self-awareness. Get unstuck in the areas of creativity, mind-body, and relationships. Know how to recognize and advocate for your needs. Understand and give value to your emotions. View yourself with compassion and empathy. Develop a self-care practice that works for you.
As the Co-Founder of Thrive SLO, I am available to support motivated individuals, deepening their life satisfaction and balance. I believe each of us has an inner guide that, when nurtured, knows exactly what we need. Together, we will tailor a unique self-care plan for you to thrive.
Dr. Sarah Joy Park
Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY27418)
Connector, Gestalt Therapist, Adventurer, Trauma Healer, Food Lover
I am a dynamic, warm, funny, creative, psychotherapist. I officially started seeing clients in 2007 but was a therapist and healer long before my degree program. My approach to therapy is awareness focused, authentic, and holistic.
I believe in the transformative power of connection, presence, and telling our stories. I work with you to discover your tools for self-transformation, healing and wellness. I want more for you than simply feeling better. I will support you to live your life as a fully connected, present and thriving human.
I also identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Currently, I am focusing on supporting members of the transgender community through free letter writing for gender affirming surgery. I am also restricting any new ongoing clients to those in the trans/gender variant/genderfluid community.
