ALLISON HAMILTON, MS, NCC
Licensed Professional Counselor - Associate & National Certified Counselor
Available for In-Person or Virtual Individual Therapy
My focus as a counselor is to meet you where you are in life and, as a team, work toward your unique goals. I believe that we are in this together as counselor and client. As a parent, I have and continue to experience the joys and challenges of raising a child and feel passionate about supporting parents and all clients through a warm, empathetic, person-centered counseling approach. Additionally, I incorporate elements of Strengths-Based Therapy (SBT), solution-focused therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) into my therapeutic work with clients ranging from children to adults.
My clinical experience includes counseling students and alumnae at the University of Houston-Downtown and, most recently, working with young adults to increase their executive functioning skills and self-confidence, co-leading young adult and children’s social skills groups, and individually counseling children and their parents at The Conative Group. I bring positivity, mindfulness, and a genuine interest in hearing clients’ stories to every session. I look forward to connecting with you in a meaningful way soon.
Prior to choosing a career in counseling I worked in public relations, elementary education, and the travel industry. I love spending time with my family, reading, hiking, and volunteering in the Houston community. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations at the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of St. Thomas in Houston. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate supervised by Dr. Katie Purswell, LPC-S.
