Dr. Hamblin addresses common problems that many people experience, such as depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship issues. He often works with couples (heterosexual or homosexual), families, step-families, as well as teenagers or adults on an individuals basis. His therapy is generally brief and solution-oriented.
Dr. Hamblin's Philosophy
"A psychiatrist with whom I work has described my therapeutic style as "artistic". I like that and consider it a compliment."
"Mine is not a sing-songy, head weaving, "how does that make you feel?" therapeutic approach.Rather, I respect the fact that my patients are presenting problems that necessitated their appointment.Problems have solutions."
"This is important work.I believe therapy should be an active process.My sessions are almost always active and highly engaging.This is the work of solution discovery.I believe people have their own answers, these answers reside within.We actively and collaboratively seek these answers."
