“I offer counseling services to individuals and families of all ages from 3 years of age to geriatric. Specializing in adolescent therapy, I recognize our early experiences not only shape who we become, but how we view ourselves and the world around us. Through Therapy and by working together we can ensure you have the tools and skills needed to live a happy and healthy life.” commented Alexis Hamilton, LCSW, Behavioral Health Therapist.
The FMH Horizon Healthcare Outpatient Behavioral Health Therapy Program provides counseling services to individuals, couples and families, including children, teens, and adults in both the Fairfield and Carmi Clinics. Those dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, family conflict, medical illness, and behavioral difficulties could benefit from the program, as well as those with a more severe mental health diagnosis. A variety of interventions and coping skills are offered based upon individual treatment planning and agreed upon by the patient and the healthcare team.
