I have been a clinical psychologist since 1994, and I am currently licensed in West Virginia. I have also been a college professor at West Liberty University since 2006. I have been a Christian since 1980 and have raised two children who are conscientious adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, ADHD, parenting problems, nursing home concerns, career challenges, guilt, forgiveness, and PTSD I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Dr. McClain is what I was searching for- between professional expertise and experience (aka tools and talking through mental health) partnered with faith- which is directly related to my identity, I found the perfect therapist for me.

My conversations with doctor MCClain was limited to one session. However in the one session she was very interested is what I had to say without interruption, and I never felt rushed. She asked me some thought provoking questions, which gave me pause to think about, thoughts that had not crossed my mind. She provided me with insight, and offered a few suggestions that made sense.

I would not hesitate for a second to reccomend her. She also has sent me a follow up text to see how I was doing. It just felt good to know she was a text away if I needed her.

Work with me!
