My name is Nadine Thompson, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in Clinical Practice, from Smith College School of Social Work in 1991. I also have post-graduate certification in Addiction counseling, multicultural practice, DBT, and Couples and Family Therapy. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addiction, relationships/parenting, and more. Over the past 30 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the rapport, connection, and comfort you feel with your therapist. Recently, I have come to really see the value in being able "to hold space" for clients to express their deepest feelings and possibly find the answers and direction that they need as they become more self-aware. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe in the power of “telling our stories”, as a pathway to healing and resilience. Our work together may include you being able to see yourself and those around you more clearly and develop tools and strategies for creating change in your life.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker providing psychotherapy services in California and Rhode Island (LCSW / LICSW). My expertise encompasses anxiety, depression, grief, relational challenges, major life transitions, adjusting to difficult health diagnoses, and trauma processing. In my work with clients, I prioritize building a collaborative partnership that cultivates compassion, respect, self-esteem, and resilience. As a United States Veteran with extensive deployment experience, I am highly attuned to the stressors of Military and Veteran life. My specialization lies in treating individuals grappling with the effects of past physical, emotional, or combat-related trauma. Trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) through EMDRIA; I am dedicated to creating a nonjudgmental and supportive therapeutic environment. My passion as a mental health clinician is deliberate: to guide you authentically and effectively on your wellness journey. I firmly believe that regardless of one's experiences, individuals have control over how they narrate their lives. My goal is to assist you in discovering and embracing your true self. Recognizing the unique nature of each person's path to recovery, I create custom treatment plans designed to reduce symptoms and stabilize mood through a comprehensive mental health model addressing the physical, mental, emotional, and physiological aspects of each client. My ultimate desire is to help you realize that long-term change is not only possible but also sustainable through intentional and consistent efforts. Learning to identify triggers for negative thoughts and beliefs empowers you to regain control of your life and infuse it with new meaning. To me, the essence of therapy lies in reconditioning maladaptive perspectives, building emotional intelligence, and providing guidance on navigating life circumstances. Through conscious and continual effort, you will develop adaptive coping skills, allowing you to manifest the very best version of yourself each day. The therapist-client relationship is unique, serving as the foundation for change and the stage for healing. Reaching out for assistance is a courageous first step toward healing and growth. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you, offering support in reaching your goals and navigating your struggles. Book an appointment with me today.
