Jennifer O. Hamilton, MD
I am a Stanford trained, Board Certified psychiatrist who has over ten years experience in psychopharmacology (prescribing medications) and psychotherapy. My goal is to work with you as a team to determine the most accurate diagnosis then decide, along with you, the best course of treatment. My diagnoses are based on DSM criteria and treatments are evidence based and reflect the latest research.
My philosophy is to empower change within you by looking at all aspects of your unique situation. People often feel shame because they are having problems, no matter what the cause. I understand the courage it takes to ask for help and my approach is one of compassion and non-judgment for your life story.
I believe in a holistic approach and never push patients to take medications. I believe that therapy can be hugely beneficial and will suggest providers who will match your needs if you would be best helped by a therapeutic modality I don’t provide. I encourage my patients to use other adjunctive treatments as well, including acupuncture, massage, exercise and good nutrition.
I see patients from age 16 on from all socioeconomic, educational, ethnic and sexual orientation backgrounds.
I hope you will allow me to assist you on your journey.
