Angela McClain has been there to help me through my challenges in my life. She is very professional and as caring as any provider I’ve had. Her sense of humor makes her so easy to talk to.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Angela and the care she gives. She is extremely honest and upfront with clients/people about things happen in her life to cause a cancellation and/or rescheduling, just as things happen in my life. She does not rush her appointments and remembers everything I think I have ever said; more than I even remember most of the time lol. Not every therapist allows email, text, or contacting them outside of your actual therapy time, but Angela is very good at what she does. Thank you for all you do. A.B.

I was nervous about starting counseling in the first place, but Angela squashed all those fears and concerns in our first session. She is extremely down to earth and can tell she is truly interested in what I had/have to say. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks about a local therapist. J.B.

Extremely unprofessional. She didn't read half of my emails, but when I brought it up she sent several emails in a row asking me to give her another chance. Not someone I would trust with my mental health.

My visits with Angela are a very good use of my time. She doesn't rush my visits. She takes time to listen and understand my needs/concerns. She's given me the tools and knowledge I need to be the best ME.

Angela has been very helpful in getting me through a recently unexpected event that I have been grieving. I feel comfortable talking to her, and she really listens and has sound advise. Her homework assignments have been very useful. Combined all of her work with me had allowed me to move forward. I highly recommend her.

Angela is the best therapist I have ever had, I am the person I am today because of her ability to meet me where I am and help me to have the tools to move forward. She has seen me at my worst and has still been able to lift me out of the mud. I have seen other therapist and they were unable to help be with tools that were fit for me. Not everything works for each patient and Angela understands that and has worked with me, understanding what helps me the most. If you are looking for a therapist I can't thing of anyone better to chose. She saved me by showing me how to save myself. If there were more stars I would give her all of them.

Scheduling an appointment with Angela McClain is a very tedious task. She only communicates outside of the office by email. She doesn't listen to her potential patients when trying to set up "initial appointments. Her office also "sends out confirmation emails the day before." This is false, I did not receive any form of contact from her office, so 3 hours before my appointment I emailed " I am looking forward to our appointment." She then stated that the appointment was cancelled due to my lack of responding to a fictional message that I should have received the prior day. My experience has been very upsetting and this person should not be in this field as she has proven that she honestly doesn't care about being professional.

Angela provides such effective, comprehensive, and empathetic care. I was very hesitant about participating in counseling services since I had some "not-so-great" experiences in the past; however, Angela eased my concerns and hesitancy so naturally. I would highly recommend Angela and Firm Foundations Counseling Inc. to anyone and everyone I talk to in regards to seeking and securing care with a local clinician, especially those people I truly care about.

I couldn't be more happy with the friendship and care I have received from Angela. She didn't just make me "feel" better.... She helped me to be better, to think better and to really learn who I was meant to be. She cares deeply for her patients and I would recommend her services highly.
