Therapeutic Approach
Edward McNichols MSW LCSW
Edward McNichols MSW LCSW

People come to therapy for different reasons. Some of my clients have difficulties with personal relationships, some are dealing with stress or anxiety, depression, or grief and loss. Some are dealing with traumatic experiences. Our work together will help you identify and remove the obstacles that stand in the way of achieving your goals.

I will collaborate with you to rediscover your strengths and develop strategies for a happier life. Together, we will examine the patterns that are preventing you from experiencing your life to its fullest, creating satisfying relationships, and realizing the vision you have for yourself.

As your psychotherapist, I bring empathy, humor, warmth, and a sincere interest to our work together. I use a practical, evidence-based approach, and my style is down-to-earth and interactive. I look forward to beginning our work together.

Additionally, I teach both Youth Offenders and Physical and Sexual Abuse of Children: A Management Perspective, which are graduate courses for the criminal justice master’s program. I have also guest lectured at Marywood University and the University of Scranton on subjects ranging from introductory counseling, social work practice, and trauma-informed therapeutic techniques to the role of men in the feminist movement. I have done work as a therapist and presenter for the Lou Ruspi Jr. Suicide Prevention Foundation and serve as a director for both the Ted Lindeman Outreach Foundation and the Take Back the Night Foundation. I have a research interest in sexual assault prevention and response programming.
