A Little About Us

Angela McClain - Owner/Therapist

I was born and raised in Nebraska; however, relocated to Kansas resulting from marrying a native Kansan in September 2013. I love spending time with my amazing best friend/husband, 3 wonderful children, two beautiful step-daughters, and my three grandchildren, who are the “apple of my eye.”

I graduated from Bellevue University, located in Bellevue, NE, with a Master's Degree in Human Services-Clinical Counseling and a subsequent Master's Degree in Advanced Clinical Counseling. I have also completed extensive education and training in addictions evaluation and counseling. I was fortunate to have completed my clinical internships at agencies working with mental/behavioral health and addiction disorders, located in Lincoln, NE.  While training at these agencies, I received extensive training and outstanding mentoring in all levels of care, including, residential, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and aftercare services.

I am currently licensed as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor through the Kansas Behavioral Board.

I am extremely passionate and dedicated to my chosen career field and truly believe it "chose me". I feel it is a privilege and honor when clients allow me into their lives, often despite many losses, trauma, stress, and hurts they have experienced. I have a wide range of skills and interests, including, co-occurring disorders assessments and therapeutic interventions, couples and family therapy, anxiety disorders, trauma-related disorders, severe and persistent mental health clients, both male and female-specific challenges, and have been fortunate to have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric clients. I specialize in all mental/behavioral health disorders, substance abuse/addictions disorders, and relationship issues, including individual, couples, family, and group therapy.

I am looking forward to walking alongside you in your "Road of Self-discovery!"
