Professional statement

Kristina Hamilton is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who welcomes young adults and adults across the lifespan to her practice in Long Beach, NY.  In addition to in-office sessions, Kristina offers walk-and-talk sessions outdoors, as well as remote video sessions for busy professionals and parents in the states of New York, Florida, and Virginia.

Kristina provides specialized support in anxiety, trauma, and career and work stress, approaching each client’s concern through the lens of active mindfulness. Many of her clients are navigating significant transitions, such as adjusting to life during and after college or managing a move to New York City.

Kristina takes a holistic approach to treatment, tailoring her treatment plan to each client by spending time learning about their background and goals. She is trained in evidence-based cares such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which provides clients with the tools to manage their stressors and adapt across various environments in healthy ways.

In addition to her general private practice, Kristina has an expertise in working with U.S. veterans and individuals in the NYC fire department, as well as their spouses and older children.

Kristina’s warmth and dedication set clients at ease in sessions, paving the way for collaboration and authentic internal growth throughout their time together. She looks forward to working with you.
