Hannah Farnsworth

Hannah Farnsworth

Psychology Intern

I completed my bachelor's degree at Saint Louis University and my master's degree in psychology at University of Minnesota-Duluth. Currently, I am in the last year of my doctorate in clinical psychology with an emphasis on health psychology at Pacific University in Portland, OR. I am originally from Minnesota and have enjoyed getting to experience new places through my schooling.

I have worked in hospital and primary care settings in behavioral health, maternal fetal medicine, midwifery, chronic pain, and bariatric surgery evaluations. Given my health training, I look forward to gaining more experience working with patients in other hospital departments as well to enhance my future psychology career in hospital settings. Helping patients work towards their health goals and collaborating with their providers excites me about working in this setting.

When I am not working, my favorite leisure activities include hiking, painting, rock climbing, and reading a mystery novel with my cat beside me.

My name is Sandra Bertram Grant and I am a rising second year Ph.D. student in Counseling Psychology at the University of Denver. I am originally from Monterrey, México.

I received my Bachelor at the University of Kansas and continued my education at the University of Missouri where I received my Masters. My clinical experience has focused on trauma work. I have practiced at domestic violence and sexual assault shelters, in addition to providing services to inmates at Denver County Jail. My clinical interests remain constant in that I continue to deliver therapy to underserved populations as we continue to destigmatize mental health practices.

I am passionate about providing accessible bilingual and culturally competent counseling services for the Latinx community. I am excited to further grow and develop my skills while practicing in an integrative care setting.
