Dana Hampson, LPC-S, MBA

in Our Team

Do you find that the relationships in your life just aren't living up to your expectations? Maybe it's the relationship with your significant other, co-workers or boss. It could be with friends or family members that you find the relationships missing something crucial. Perhaps the relationship you have with yourself is the one that's critical and condescending. You may spend a lot of time feeling anxious, depressed or angry and know this is not how you want to feel but aren’t sure what to do about it. Maybe you are a people-pleaser and just can't seem to say "no" and as a result feel taken advantage of and resentful. Sticking up for yourself, having firm boundaries and being assertive about your needs may even feel impossible. I believe that so many of our struggles revolve around a present unhappiness in a key relationship in our lives. The wonderful part is...it doesn't have to stay that way!

I am an experienced therapist committed to guiding and supporting my clients through the journey of disappointment, frustration and self-doubt so they can find themselves again and reconnect with a life of love and purpose. My desire is to partner with you in finding the peace you are looking for. Together, we’ll be solution-focused and use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy as well as Choice Theory to help you reach your goals.  I also come from an Existential theoretical orientation in that I work with clients struggling with questions such as: Who am I? What's my purpose in life? What do I believe? and How do I find meaning in the chaotic world I feel like I live in? 

I attended the University of Montevallo and earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology before going on to pursue a master’s degree in Community Agency Counseling at Auburn University and later a master’s in Business Administration Degree at Lincoln Memorial University. In addition to cousenling individuals in our practice, I provide supervision to counselors in training to help them on the path towards becoming licensed therapists themselves, aid counselors in their private practice journey and teach part-time for the Psychology Department at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Counselor Supervision

Finding a licensure supervisor once you have finished your Master’s Degree can be a tricky process but it doesn’t have to be. I am an experienced licensure supervisor who has seen a number of ALC’s from the beginning of supervision to the attainment of their LPC. I guide individuals through the initial paperwork process, answering the numerous questions new graduates  have. I meet with my supervisees weekly at either my office in Madison or other local sites as needed and read professional literature with them to further awareness and knowledge. I often study with my supervisees for their National Board Exam and provide support through the application and testing process. If you’re looking for an experienced, direct and enthusiastic supervisor and mentor for the licensure process, look no further and call or email me today! Cost- $100/week (direct and indirect hours included)

Private Practice Consultation

Can I be in business for myself? Do I have what it takes to start my own practice? How do I even get started? These are some of the many questions that swirl around in the heads of individuals considering venturing into the world of private practice. With a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and the experience of starting, growing and expanding my own practice, I am well suited to help guide counselors who have questions about the process of being their own boss. Give me a call or email me to schedule a coaching session. I will work with clinicians on a one time or on-going consultation basis. Cost- $136/hour
