Meet the Staff


Dana Scott, MA, LPC


Site Director

I was born and raised in Charlotte County, Virginia where they just received first stoplight in the last few years. Growing up, I watched my mother work in the human services field as a social worker, case manager, and childcare provider. I did not want to follow in my mom's footsteps and decided that I wanted to be a physician. I attended The University of Virginia for undergraduate studies and received a bachelor's degree in psychology in 2011.

During my last year at college, I participated in the Young Women's Leadership Program, where I was a big sister to a middle school girl. This experience made a big impact in my life and I credit this to choosing to pursue a career in counseling and not pursuing a career as a physician. After college, I decided to stay in Charlottesville and began working in the human services field while pursuing my master's degree. I received her master's in professional counseling from Liberty University in 2014. I recently participated in a training program for EMDR and enjoy integrating different modalities to meet client needs.  My team and I are excited to serve the surrounding community and show them what CARE at NCG is all about!

With over 10 years working in school systems, I am proud to work in developing and implementing school-based programs for NCG and sharing in the many stories of children and families over the years. When the work is done, enjoying family is a priority, with three boys to keep things busy and interesting. I am a self-proclaimed cat lover, sports hater, closet geek, and TV junkie.

I graduated from Liberty University with of Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Heath in 2015, and I have been working for the National Counseling Group since 2016. During my time with NCG, I have been able to work with our community based counseling, mental health skills building, crisis stabilization, and outpatient services. I love that NCG has so many ways to help people and ways for counselors to grow. I am the clinical supervisor over the crisis stabilization service, and we will always try to help families throughout whatever crisis arises. I have always dedicated myself to learning new ways to grow and learn in the counseling field. I love comic books, and I am always at every new comic book movie that comes out. I also love Jazz and getting into a new philosophy or fantasy book. I recently got married, and I look forward to whatever life will bring.

When working with clients, I primarily use a cognitive-behavioral approach as well as techniques to encourage empowerment and identifying personal strengths to find success in therapeutic goals. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, cooking, attending festivals and concerts, planning and attending social events, and catching up on missed TV shows.
