Jo Ann McClure, MS, LPC

JoAnn utilizes an eclectic approach in her practice, pulling strongly from a Client-Centered, Feminist base, using Cognitive Behavioral and other methods to facilitate behavior change and growth.  JoAnn helps clients to recognize the resources and strengths they already have, while providing a warm and judgement-free environment where they can feel safe discussing the issues that are causing distress and hindering their progress toward a more fulfilled life. She sees a wide range of clients, from children and adolescents, through early, middle and late adulthood, and enjoys the diversity this brings to her practice. 

As a mother of 4 children, one of whom is on the Autism spectrum, she has a particular affinity for helping other parents with the myriad of issues that child-raising brings up, and especially those parents who are dealing with the special set of circumstances that arise from having a child with special needs.  Other areas of special interest include, but are not limited to couple and family therapy, parenting,  depression and anxiety, gay and lesbian concerns, and women’s issues.  She is available for day and evening appointments, and typically able to schedule new appointments within three days.
