Joanna Hamilton LMFT
General Office Hours
In Eastern Time
The initial sessions focus on getting to know you. This includes the assessment and treatment planning stages where we will discuss what you would like to work on. You will be able to learn more about yourself and what it may take to make positive changes. Whether that be through learning how to better communicate, develop coping skills, safety planning to reduce harm, symptom management or processing challenges.
Treatment often depends on the personalities of the therapist and the client and the particular problems you hope to address. There are different methods I may use to help you address those concerns. My primary therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Behavior Modification, or Motivational interviewing. Treatment tools will be individualized and may include coping skills, deep breathing/grounding exercises, and goal planning. However, treatment will be tailored and specific to you.
