Hamilton Warren-Sutton, MD

Hamilton Warren-SuttonI (Hamilton Warren-Sutton, “Dr. Hami” to many) completed my undergraduate education at the University of Idaho and my medical school training at the University of Washington through the Idaho WWAMI Program. I attended UCLA/SFV VAMC for adult psychiatry training and completed my child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at the University of Utah. I am board certified in Adult Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

I have worked with adults, children, and adolescents in public and private inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. I am a strong advocate for the expansion of telepsychiatry services to better serve the mental health needs of those living in rural areas. My special interests include working with individuals with developmental disorders (including autism spectrum), anxiety disorders (including posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, separation anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder), Tourette’s disorder, behavioral disorders, mood disorders, substance use disorders, and ADHD. I am a strong advocate for early intervention services and implementation of appropriate educational supports for children with diverse needs. One of my future goals is to establish a therapeutic preschool as well as a day treatment program for younger children, preteens, and adolescents with a trauma based focus.

Upon my move back to Boise, I rejoined my “family” at Northwest Neurobehavioral Health, LLC. It is good to be back! I will continue to provide telepsychiatry services to Children’s Mental Health in Region II. I am also providing psychiatric services to the Northwest Children’s Home residential treatment center at their Lewiston campus and Nampa campus. I previously served on the Idaho Medicaid Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee for 2 years and participated in the M.A.T.C.H. Program (providing timely psychiatric consultation to participating primary care providers). I enjoy working with youth in foster care and have previously worked closely with the Casey Family Program prior to moving to Florida in July 2013. In 2012, I was a member of Idaho’s state task force committee that established a federally mandated psychotropic medication guide for parents, foster parents, and to State of Idaho providers working with youth in foster care.

I am dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing environment for the patients I see as well their families (if applicable) that inspires hope and promotes self advocacy as well as personal well being. I am a strong advocate of the psychotherapeutic experience and enjoy working in a multidisciplinary setting so as to maximize each individual’s ability to explore the challenges and difficulties that have brought them into treatment.
