We often look for happiness outside of ourselves although happiness exists within us and is just waiting for the door to be opened. You truly have the power inside of you to overcome those obstacles that keep getting in the way of your happiness and overall wellbeing! My name is April and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Tennessee. I have been working in the mental health and addictions field for 20+ years in a broad array of clinical settings; including inpatient care, partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programs, in-home care, and individual outpatient therapy. I will use a collaborative approach to assist clients in mindfully processing emotions, achieving overall acceptance of self, and gaining the empowerment of emotional regulation. I look forward to us working together to get you to your next great thing in life!

April is a great therapist and really takes the time to listen. I was going through a very stressful/sad period in my life and she really took the time to understand my concerns/needs and advised the tools I should use to help me feel better and stay more grounded. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs someone to help them through a hardship in their life or just needs a professional opinion on your situation.

April does a great job defining boundaries and setting expectations early on. And, as you continue to meet, she is very good at honoring those boundaries and expectations, as she helps you on your journey to getting better at helping yourself. As she says, “If you put in the work, you will see yourself improve.”
