Family/Marital Therapy

Family and Marital therapists work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair the harmful or negative aspects. Family and Marital Therapy is one of Tim Hamilton's greatest strengths as a result of over 14 years of clinical work in Las Vegas, not only in helping families regain health in their relationships but also supervising other counselors with their clients as well.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the patient in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments. CBT has been clinically proven to help clients in a relatively short amount of time with a wide range of disorders, including depression and anxiety. Tim Hamilton utilizes Cognitive Behavioral therapy when applicable and appropriate for his clients' specific situations.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of depth psychology, the primary focus of which is to explore such "unconscious contents" which express themselves in a client's life through dreams, thoughts, or behaviors and which may be cause for concern. It also relies on the interpersonal relationship between client and therapist more than other forms of depth psychology. In terms of approach, this form of therapy also tends to be more eclectic than others, taking techniques from a variety of sources, rather than relying on a single system of intervention. Tim Hamilton utilizes a psycho-dynamic approach when it is a client's preference to explore these sometimes confusing and seemingly uncontrollable contents with the intent of enriching his/her life through greater understanding of them.
