Intake and Disclosure Forms

Note: The included Release Form is strictly optional, but if you do wish for Dr. Hamilton to be able to contact family members, medical providers, previous therapists, etc, please include their names on that form.

An intake assessment takes between 60 and 90 minutes, and includes discussion of your goals for treatment, symptoms you may have been having, your previous treatment history (including what did or did not work about prior treatment), medical conditions, as well as other important aspects of your life (such as career, family, spirituality, or aspirations). This is also your opportunity to see whether you feel a connection with your therapist, and whether their methods seem likely to help you reach your goals.

Follow-up sessions occur generally weekly for 55 minutes, although this is flexible based on your symptoms, treatment goals, and budget/availability.

To schedule an appointment, please call Dr. Hamilton at: 828-423-0537
