I grew up in a United Methodist Church, and then, in 2013, I became a member of Antioch, an independent Catholic Church. I am a strong believer in ritual, including the holy sacrament and the Lord's Prayer. My faith makes me appropriate for Christian Counseling, and my compassionate, empathetic openness makes me appropriate for any kind of counseling.
Currently, I have a private practice, SuperNova Counseling, in which I facilitate recovery groups called The Addiction Game: Resources, Triggers, Cravings and the Meaning of Life, as well as providing therapy for children, families and couples. I have also provided consultation for the Developmental Disabilities Waiver, and have been a Clinical Counselor with Southwest Family Guidance Center. As a Professional Actor in film and television, as well as an Artist doing education and outreach at the incredible immersive experiences company, Meow Wolf, I have learned to work with individuals on their creative expression and any mental/emotional obstacles that may be in the way of expressing oneself.
I received a BA in Political Science: Peace and Conflict Studies from Bowling Green State University in 2009, including cultural and poverty immersion trips to the South Bronx, Navajo Nation, and Matamoros, MX, assisting on these trips by facilitating groups of University Students through experiential learning. I received an MA in Counseling from Southwestern College Santa Fe in 2012, LMHC license that same year and my LPCC in 2014.
My experience includes 8 years of working in the addictions field, including inpatient and outpatient groups; 11 years with Earth-based Transformational Ecopsychology; and 8 years of counseling children, families and couples, including methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy, Narrative Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, and Guided Mindfulness Practices addressing Trauma, Grief, Addiction, Anger Management and Behavioral Strategies. For the past 7 years my focus has shifted into how to incorporate art and creative expression into therapy.
Reaching out for help in times of need takes courage and I assure you that I can be here for you without judgement, and with a kind, gentle, and skillful approach to co-creating short term steps towards long term goals.
Sincerely and Thank You,
Craig Thomas McAdams, MA, LPCC

Craig is a very kind and supportive counselor with a great understanding of creativity, empathy, and knowledge of how to process emotions through physical & mental exercises. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone who has gone through traumatic events, as we practice both pragmatic & empathic ways of processing trauma, teaching self care. Thank you Craig for your wonderful support!
