My name is Nadine Thompson, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Clinical Practice, from Smith College School of Social Work in 1991. I also have post-graduate certification in Addiction counseling, multi-Cultural practice, DBT, and Family therapy. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addiction, relationships/parenting, and more. Over the past 30 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the rapport, connection, and comfort you feel with your therapist.
We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe in the power of “telling-our-stories”, as a pathway to healing and resilience. Our work together may include you being able to see yourself and those around you more clearly and develop tools and strategies for creating change in your life.
My counseling style is warm, empathic and I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I approach counseling through a client-centered, narrative approach. My philosophy is that every client has strengths and solutions available for what they are going through. It is important for me to help my clients feel empowered to overcome their present life circumstances.
I look forward to meeting you and being on this journey with you!

Nadine was very calming and easy to talk with. She helped me through work stress and I really appreciated her thoughtful suggestions.
For my first time in therapy, unsure of where to even start, I was looking for a therapist that was patient, understanding and would guide me through this process of self awareness and healing. Nadine was all that and more. She helped me think about things in new ways and made me feel comfortable from the first moment we spoke. I would highly recommend her!
Nadine is incredibly personable and professional, with a warmness about the way she approaches thing. She is very easy to talk to and very flexible with timing/scheduling.
Nadine is very professional and takes the time to assess your needs and address them with you. She is very joyful and gives you hope in healing whilst she supports you in the process. I would recommend her without a doubt!
Nadine is very thoughtful, respectful and listens to everything you have to say! She’s down to earth and very relatable.
