ABOUT ME

Welcome,

I’m Kristen McClure, a seasoned Licensed Clinical Social Worker with nearly three decades of experience. My journey began with a focus on women’s and children’s unique mental health experiences. Over time, I’ve widened my practice to include adults and teens, addressing conditions like trauma, abuse, anxiety, OCD, and bipolar disorder. However, it is my work with ADHD women that truly ignites my passion, and I envision continuing this path until my retirement.

During the initial years of my career, I worked with sexual abuse and trauma. This early immersion into young minds’ complexities shaped my understanding of how childhood experiences significantly affect adult lives. My experience in these formative years has provided invaluable insights into developing therapeutic approaches for adults.

Recognizing the societal pressures neurodivergent individuals often face, I’ve evolved my therapeutic approach to be affirming and nurturing. I am dedicated to helping ADHD women navigate a world that often feels unaligned with their unique thought processes.

I conduct therapy sessions virtually for clients based in North Carolina and South Carolina. My therapy aims to:

  • Teach effective self-support strategies.
  • Facilitate the discovery and use of unique strengths.
  • Empower self-advocacy.
  • Encourage self-compassion, even in challenging situations.
  • Help to live authentically, in harmony with your values.
  • Foster trust in the wisdom of your emotions and body.

My belief as a Neurodivergent-Affirming Therapist is that neurodivergence is not a defect, but society disables you. My mission is to help my clients celebrate their uniqueness, promoting self-acceptance and resilience amidst societal pressures.

Warm regards, Kristen McClure
