Adium is a a good Mac multi-protocol chat client. It's source code is available and generally well recieved by the community.
Adium has OTR (off the record functionality) which will enable for secure chatting regardless of the chat system (google chat, yahoo, etc) that is used. I highly recommend you turn on OTR functionality and make sure the party you are chatting with has an OTR enabled client (jitsi, pidgin, or adium).
If you want secure voice functionality, then i'd recommend a ZRTP enabled client such as Jitsi. Again, like Adium - the secure features, OTR (for secure chat) and ZRTP (for secure voice) need to be activated on both sides for the conversation to be secured with encryption.
ZRTP clients for mobile devices also exist. Groundwire for iOS has a ZRTP functionality. csipsimple is the one suggested by the folks at the Guardian project for Android <https://guardianproject.info/2012/05/26/ostn-secure-voip-wizard-now-built-into-csipsimple-for-android/>
