Welcome to Firm Foundations Counseling Inc. I am so glad you stopped by to learn a bit more about me and the services I provide. I look forward to partnering with you on your road of self-discovery & empowerment.
My name is Angela McClain. I was born & raised in Nebraska and moved to Kansas in 2013 after marrying a Kansas native. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) & Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor (LCAC) in Kansas. I am also a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP) & Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Nebraska and Iowa.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends who mean the world to me. Having a large, eclectic, and often unpredictable family has made me very fortunate. I have many first-hand experiences and understanding of issues related to a person’s “family of origin” dynamics, strengths, and challenges.
I graduated from Bellevue University in Nebraska, with Master's Degrees in Human Services-Clinical Counseling and Advanced Clinical Counseling. I have also completed extensive education and training in addiction evaluation and counseling. I completed my clinical internships at agencies working with mental/behavioral health and addiction disorders, in Lincoln, NE. I received extensive training & outstanding mentoring at all levels of care, including residential, inpatient, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and aftercare services.
I am incredibly 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. My specialized experience covers co-occurring disorder assessments, therapeutic interventions, family therapy, depressive, bipolar, anxiety and trauma-related disorders, and addiction. I have been EMDR educated, trained & experienced working with clients on difficult issues &/or challenges experienced throughout their lives. I have been fortunate to have worked with children, adolescents, adults, & geriatric clients. I specialize in all mental/behavioral health disorders, substance abuse/addiction disorders, & relationship issues, including individual, couples, family, & group therapy services & interventions.
My number one priority is ensuring each client is treated with the highest level of dignity, respect, and effective care. Thank you for stopping by to learn a little more about me. I look forward to hearing from you.
Walking alongside you on your "Road of Self-discovery!"
