April is very thoughtful and her probing is very constructive. She offered a lot is time slots in her schedule, making it easier for me to make therapy fit into my schedule. I'm very glad to have been matched with April.

I have really enjoyed my sessions with April. She listens, and responds appropriately. She makes sure my concerns are addressed. She finds ways to help my outside of the sessions.

April is fantastic. For the first time I feel like someone is actually trying to understand what is at the root of all this, rather than walking in with a judgment and trying to walk me into it. I feel at ease, and she is always responsive - sometimes faster than I can be. I am VERY happy!

I’ve only interacted a few times, but, it has been amazing. I really appreciate her time and compassion.
