About Me

High five to you for reaching out!! It isn't the easiest thing to do. I wish you peace and blessings in your search for clarity and healing.

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience in the behavioral health field. I have worked with many individuals from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures. Much of my work has been adolescents and adults dealing with issues including but not limited to depression, stress, anxiety, personality disorders, family conflict, marital discord, communication issues, and substance abuse.

I approach treatment from a warm, nurturing, and non-judgmental stance with a dose of reality mixed in (when necessary of course). It is important to listen and adjust to clients in order to provide effective treatment. I take on a multiculturalist perspective and believe in the importance of social justice. My style of treatment is eclectic and I use an array of theories to help my clients move forward and live their most purpose-filled lives. Some of these theories include CBT, DBT, ACT, Client-Centered, Motivational Interviewing, Transtheoretical, Solution Focused, Mindfulness, and more. I believe that treatment must be tailored to each specific client. We're all different...treatment should reflect that.

With that said, it is my purpose to help those that desire healing. Allow me to assist you on your journey to live a productive quality of life! I look forward to listening.

Take care of you!!

Reviews

Written by K.A. on Sep 17, 2021 after therapy with April for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I was impressed with Dr. Brooks ability to make me feel comfortable talking about some issues I really did not want to deal with. Her encouragement and words of advice have helped create a clearer sense of what I am worth and what I hope to aspire for in the future. I am so grateful!
