Hanna LeBaron LCSW was born and raised in Finland. She was raised by a single mother in a small apartment with her brother. She also had a sister, who could never live with them due to her disabilities. The area where Hanna was raised had a lot of socio-economical problems, such as mental health issues, addictions, refugees, poverty, neglect and abuse. Hanna was introduced to alcohol and drugs early on, lived in group homes and went to rehab at age 17.
The other side of Hanna was always very spiritual. She always believed in God ever since she can remember and she was desperately looking for Him. From a young age, Hanna would visit churches and people that believed in God. However, it wasn’t until things got really bad with drugs and alcohol before God interfered in her life and sent her to Utah. After many challenges and struggles, Hanna found God and learned about her mission here on Earth.
Hanna has worked in the substance abuse treatment field since 2000. She went back to school and earned her Social Sciences Bachelors Degree in 2011 and Masters Degree in Social work in 2013. Since then, she has specialized in trauma treatment getting certified in EMDR and she has continued improving the treatment for addictions. Hanna works as a Clinical Director for Maple Mountain Recovery, a center that cares for women and men suffering from trauma, addictions and mental health issues. Hanna is currently learning somatic experiencing for treating trauma and getting certified in treating eating disorders as well. She is also interested in animal assisted therapy, spirituality and getting certified in treating sexual issues.
Hanna is married and a mother of 4 beautiful children. She loves dogs, horses and all kinds of animals. Hanna rides dressage as many times as she can or has time to do it and goes to the gym 5 times a week to take care of her physical and mental health. Hanna’s future goal is to travel and see as many beautiful places in this world as possible.
Hanna found her recovery with God and believes that when letting God be part of treatment for mental health and addictions, miracles can happen. Hanna knows that spirituality is powerful and can support people during hard times and help them recover faster. Hanna is passionate about being part of the Eternal Core movement in bringing God back to treating His children.
