Hi, I am Kirk Burke-Hamilton, LCSW, therapist, owner, and founder of Hamilton Therapeutic Services PLLC. After years of working in community mental health mostly as a therapist I decided to start my own practice that focuses on compassion and justice. Hamilton Therapeutic Services is passionate about providing psychotherapy to patients and clinicians interested in enhancing their lives and building upon what they already use to guide them. We explore healthier ways to navigate through stress and trauma. We partner together to find viable solutions to setbacks in our lives. Patients and clinicians come to me with several different concerns. I use different modalities to help address those concerns. First, we assess the concerns and develop a plan together. Then we begin our sessions by getting to know each other through a "therapeutic relationship." Followed by methodically working our way through psychoeducation and mixed modalities to address each concern. Periodically, we reelevate your progress and adjust based on your personal needs. My personal beliefs are that men should have the freedom to be successful fathers, brothers, and sons and love however and whoever they want. I believe people of color should have a voice. We should have the freedom to create our own community. We should abandon the colonial view of what it means to be men in our society. I believe Black Lives Matter. I believe in Gay-marriage. I believe in child protection, women's rights, juvenile justice, equal protection and justice for all. I believe in advocating against the persecution of refugees and indigenous peoples. I believe in International human rights, and the rights of disadvantaged and vulnerable groups. “I will adopt a sympathetic view, one which fits with my fundamentals of compassion and justice and recognizes that compassion does not have to be separated from justice."
