Suzanne Hamilton

(LPC, CDVS-II)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Louisiana, with 23 years of experience. As an LPC, I provide individual, couples, and group counseling for adults (18+) for a variety of issues, including communication skills, domestic violence offenses, anger management, Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP). In my therapy I combine Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Christian counseling.

Cognitive-Behavior Therapy relies on the idea that there is a connection between our thoughts and our feelings. We have automatic negative thoughts the pop into our heads without warning, without our being aware of it. We can torment ourselves with our own thoughts. This is why the Bible says we need to renew our minds (Rom. 12:2; Eph 4:23) With practice, we can learn to identify these emotionally-charged negative thoughts and change them so we can live a healthier life. Philippians 4:8 gives us a guideline for what to replace these negative thoughts with.

If Christian Counseling is important to you, please know that I don’t have any ideas about what that should mean to you because Christianity is not a one-size-fits-all experience. We will use the parts of your Christian life that are important to you during our time together: things like Scripture, prayer, etc. I will be checking with you throughout counseling to make sure that what I suggest does not violate your belief system.

I look forward to working with you to reach your goals. Please feel free to reach out to me so that we can determine whether we are a good fit to work together.
