Jordan Hamilton, Ph.D.

I am both a bodyworker and psychotherapist. I really, really enjoyed and appreciated Ross’ ability to bring these two approaches together to address the body’s role in therapy, and the mind’s role in contracted muscles, and habitual, health negating postures.

But what stands out the most in having worked with Ross is you really know who he is. There is no pretense or posturing, just a really good guy who really likes what he’s doing and is really good at it.

With other therapists, I’ve often felt as if I was running in place. Ross gets things moving. He’s extremely intuitive and has introduced me to EMDR, which is one of the most successful tools I’ve ever used in therapy. Ross’s work has helped me resolve issues that have been with me for years.

I have worked with Ross on several occasions and found his knowledge and experience to be very helpful to me as I’ve faced and worked through mental health issues. His approach is always professional and human. There was an immediate connection between us. He got to the core of issues and gave me practical steps that I have successfully used.

I have worked with Ross for many years.  He is a genuine, compassionate therapist – someone who makes you feel valued and heard.  He has incredible positive energy which he directs to both the advancement of his own learning and supporting his clients.  Down to earth, grounded, warm and intelligent – highly recommended!

I have worked extensively with Ross in both individual and couples therapy. I’ve never met another therapist with such extensive knowledge of the complex dynamics that exist in a relationship. The time I’ve spent with him has helped me show up in my own relationship in ways that I never dreamed. My level of patience, compassion and connection with my partner is better than it’s ever been. Things that once felt impossible, like compromising or sharing my honest feelings with her, are now happening on a daily basis. The result is that we are both much happier and less stressed. There is more trust and I finally feel like we are on the same team again.

The best thing about working with Ross is his way of setting people at ease so that even the most challenging topics seem approachable. It really helped me stay optimistic when he made it sound so easy. It’s also nice knowing that him and his wife have been married for longer than I’ve been alive! That definitely makes me believe that what he teaches really works.

Ross worked with my partner and me after we had realized we couldn’t reconcile.  We had one of the most difficult challenges before us that parents can have – how to let our daughter grow up with two parents, though they lived far apart.  He got us both to see reality, helped us agree to difficult compromises and together we created a plan which made a hard situation seem workable. Ross was compassionate but talked sense into each of us when necessary.  We were both able to relate to him, which made it possible for us to communicate for the first time.

I recommend Dr. Hamilton. He’s highly knowledgeable, compassionate and has a wonderfully gentle sense of humor. I’ve heard nothing but good things about him from others as well.

I am a physician specializing in mood disorders with practices in Roseville, Folsom and Yuba City. I have been referring my patients to Dr. Hamilton for over fifteen years. Without exception, every one of my patients have been helped and have had nothing but the highest opinions of both of these exceptional psychotherapists. He has been of immense assistance to my most complicated patients when medications alone have been insufficient to remit their myriad symptoms and difficulties. He has been very helpful in identifying and addressing the things that patients deal with in their lives that impede recovery, those life events and stressors that we physicians often miss in our medical – pharmacological approach to depression and anxiety disorders.
Moreover, there are too many to count instances where Dr. Hamilton’s insight has been pivotal in helping me to establish a more accurate diagnosis in complicated mood disorder patients. Likewise, I’ve been honored to consult with him on many of his patients who he accurately and quickly recognized as having a mood disorder for which psychotherapy plus medications would be the most effective treatment strategy to achieve full recovery.
It is an invaluable quality in a psychotherapist to recognize psychiatric disorders that require medical treatment as well as psychotherapy to achieve stabilization and resolution. You can be assured that Dr. Hamilton will treat you with the utmost care, compassion and competence. Without reservation he receives my highest recommendations!

My first week back home I received a priceless gift in Dr. Hamilton; a brilliant, gifted master in the healing of trauma through Developmental Needs Meeting Strategies and EMDR. In my nearly three years with Dr. Hamilton, I formed a potent foundation of real adult resources within myself for me to constantly draw upon. I have adult nurturing skills, adult protective skills and a clear core spiritual self which puts the source of my healing within myself, away from involving others which distances me from codependence. By focusing on my recovering adult self of today and meeting the unmet needs of my wounded little boys in real time, I am re-parenting my self one snapshot at a time, literally healing many major wounds from my childhood. This healing allows me to progress in the healthy development I didn’t get from my biological parents so many years ago.

I have closed my eyes and seen back in time: weeks, months, years, decades; back to when I was very young, at my conception and then before I even existed in this world. I was pure light and energy then and so my goodness springs from that spiritual purity. Internalizing my sense that I am clean and valuable without earning it frees me from relying on others to provide my sense of self and worth. There is a clear boundary between myself and others, creating safety and peace for me, empowering me the find highest and best for me.

I really believe in the laws of attraction and somehow at the depths of my descent into hell the universe provided me with people who were capable of helping me find my way. But only if I was willing to do the difficult and painful work.

The Meadows was my first awakening to light; the first genuine look at my life and my counselors there were adept at bringing it all to the surface while pointing me in the direction of long term recovery.

My psychologist, Dr. Jordan Hamilton, could not have been a better match. He gently, firmly and tenaciously led me to the roots of my self and my pain and back through to a goal that most therapists do not do: healing and beyond. His agenda was not perpetual 50 minute rap sessions that ended with more questions and a vague flicker of hope, but rather repairing the damage to the fabric of my life, one mosaic patch after the other. Each time we met was action and tangible progress.

Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy is just that: meeting my needs which were not met before, allowing me to develop into wholeness and move beyond the roadblocks of trauma and resulting dysfunction. He is an expert in DNMS and EMDR protocol and I am eternally grateful for his intuition, keen insight, sensitivity and sheer brilliance.

I can’t begin to thank you enough for all the help you have given to me.  I feel so much better and lighter. You are very good at what you do!  Thanks tons.
