Nicki McLain


About Me

My name is Nicki McLain, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience working in the field. I hold a current license in the state of Indiana. While I have experience working in many areas of mental health, my most recent specialities include treatment of the spectrum of mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adults abused as children, addiction, personality disorders, self-esteem/empowerment issues, grief and loss. I utilize a client centered collaborative approach that draws from tenets of strength based therapy, solution focused techniques, as well as cognitive and dialectical modalities. I offer a variety of interventions depending on your needs. I believe the most important aspect of a counseling environment in one that fosters a relationship of trust and acceptance between client and therapist. It is through this partnership that growth and progress are possible. My goal is to provide insight, techniques, and tools you can use to make the desired changes in your life. I will work at a pace you are comfortable with to ensure we are moving toward the goals you establish for yourself. I look forward to encouraging, empowering, guiding , and even challenging you at times. I find it a privilege to be a part of one's journey towards health and healing. Lets get started!
