Hey there, I’m glad you’re here! I’m Kristina Hamilton, LCSW. I am a licensed clinician providing care to New York and Florida residents. I’m a preferred provider in the New York Healthsmart World Trade Center Health Program Network. I specialize in treating complex Post Traumatic Stress, PTSD and cumulative occupational trauma. I work with World Trade Center victims who suffer from chronic illness and health anxieties. I treat business professionals, mothers and parents adjusting to role strain at different stages of life. Specifically, I’m someone who helps individuals and families who want to feel more satisfied with their connections with each other and live a life that is in sync with their goals and values. I support clients in living a more harmonious life that feels balanced, even when life throws a curveball. Or when life throws two curveballs, a 24 hour shift, a crying baby and a Hurricane.
I know from my years of experience working with professional risk-takers; including; FDNY Firefighters, NYPD Police, Military, and their family members- that you can make positive and long-lasting changes in your life. You have the ability even when you doubt it. It’s there- and you know that! It’s what wakes you up and motivates you. That ability and drive is the same reason you are here. You are motivated to be your best self.
The drive and motivation to make positive changes while you raise your standards for yourself is a significant task. I’m here for you. When you connect to a therapist who “Get’s it”, where you can be yourself and share your feelings, it’s an amazing experience!
If you are ready to do the work, you will be amazed at how resilient and capable you are. The process of a collaborative approach to therapy can allow you to grow more quickly than you ever have before.
I’m certified in evidence-based therapies for trauma, anxiety, and depression. They include Cognitive therapy, Cognitive Processing for Trauma (National Center For PTSD), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (National Center for PTSD) and Mindfulness and Motivational interviewing. Check out My recent training page for more. It is so important for clinicians to keep their skills up-to-date and it adds tremendous value to YOUR overall experience as a client. I draw from my training and my years of clinical experience when exploring and providing your needs and goals. I offer a boutique therapy approach that is clinically flexible, creative and preferred by clients in many stages of life seeking discretion and balance.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
