Hi! My name is April Condemi and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have worked with a variety of concerns that include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, addiction, lack of self-esteem, personality disorders, and relationship issues. I have seen individuals in medical assistance programs, drug and alcohol outpatient treatment, and in a private practice setting. I also have experience working with individuals involved in the legal system (juveniles and adults) who were incarcerated, on probation and parole, and in a detention center; as well as individuals who were in hospice care. These experiences allowed me to see people from childhood to the end of life.
My counseling style is as unique as every individual is. I believe that not one counseling approach is effective for everyone, therefore use an integrative approach. Some of the variety of approaches I use include: cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered, solution focused, and Adlerian therapeutic techniques. I focus on your needs and what it is that you want to gain from therapy. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.
I find it is important to focus on your strengths and building these up rather than focusing on the things you may not be the best at (after all, we are all human and are not perfect at everything!) It can be scary to take the first step to seek help, but I will be here to support and empower you through this fulfilling process!
I look forward to working with you!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Self esteem
I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes

April is awesome. Even after a few sessions, I could start noticing the difference. She offers a unique way of looking at things that soothe anxiety and stress.
April has been amazingly supportive and helpful in ways beyond my expectations. I wouldn't be here and be continually growing without her.
April is wonderful at her job. She has helped me with everything I have been struggling with and understands that there are things I am not ready to share yet. While this makes her job more difficult trying to help me find the answer with only half the equation she does her best to help. She has also helped me see my progress even if it is small or if I fall backwards. She pushes me to find the positive, even in the negative.
I've just been matched with April not even a full month ago and she's already been a tremendous help. She's always there when I need her.
April is wonderful. I feel heard and understood, which is important to me in a situation where I don't feel comfortable speaking to friends or family. She's helped me a great deal and I would recommend her to anyone!
April finds a way to ask all the right questions to put things into perspective for me. She’s always timely with her responses and keeps up communication if she’s going to be a little bit delayed. She has helped me tremendously since I started working with her and I’m extremely happy.
I was matched with April for counseling on relationship issues, managing anger, and finding ways to identify and effectively convey feelings. April is a superb counselor! She is extremely personable, patient, and thorough in her counseling style. No matter how much I wrote in my messages, she always addressed each and every point and in a very responsive manner. She always sought to understand where I was coming from in what I was saying, and at the same time, recommended other perspectives for me to look at, in ways that were friendly and did not make me feel guilty at all for how I felt. It's very liberating to be able to be heard without judgment and with full attention given to me. I am extremely grateful for all that April has done and will definitely gladly work with her again if I return to counseling in the future!
I have had a great experience with April. She always provides me with tools to better my mind.
April is a true and gentle soul. She has provided me insight, guidance and tough love when I needed it. She also allows me to engage in the process at my own pace and style. I have tried various forms of therapy over the years with mixed results, but with April I feel confident that I am being listened to, respected and most importantly guided in the direction that I need to go.
April is a phenomenal counselor. She's helped me through some really rough times. I don't know where I'd be without her.
April is extremely helpful to me. I feel like she is very thoughtful when it comes to my needs and tries to be available whenever I need her.
April is absolutely amazing! She understands that I have such a hectic schedule with graduating college but she will always take the time to message me and ask how I’m doing (even if it takes me a while to get back to her) she’s super personable and I can tell she really has my best interest at heart. She has helped me with my panic and anxiety. Would recommend her and this app to anyone who needs a shoulder to lean on:)
She ask questions and try to better understand your deep rooted problem rather than just advising you on things that arent even necessary. I like her approach!
Its early in my time with April but so far, I have enjoyed our correspondence and feel that it is making me think about my situation more than I do on my own. I look forward to future discussions via messaging and hope to talk with her soon to further explore my concerns.
April is the best!!! She is so considerate, listens to my concerns and gives feedback and suggestions in a very timely manner. Sometimes late Sunday nights even! I love her so much!!! She is like a friend to me.
Highly professional and insightful.
I've been dealing with a lot of stress and some issues with my relationship. April has been helping me a lot over the past couple of months and has helped me improve considerably. It has been an amazing experience working with her and I can honestly say that I can see a marked improvement in myself.
April is great. She has a positive attitude and always seems like she’s willing to help.
April has been excellent so far! She doesn't push me but rather makes me want to succeed. She gives positive reinforcement and I've already recommended 3 people to give this a try. April listens to me offers helpful feedback but also allows me to be me.
April is incredibly supportive. Checks in frequently and offers me thoughtful and practical tools on how to manage my many priorities.
April is very supportive. She is an excellent communicator.
April helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life!!!! She is a blessing. So caring and concerned for my well being. I will always be thankful to her!!!!!
She focuses on what my problems are, and she helps me dig down to the roots to really understand each problem individually.
Absolutely love my counselor!
I have been working with April for a few weeks now. She's so kind and seems genuinely caring. I'm happy to have her to express my feelings and thoughts to / working through some issues with her.
April has been extremely accommodating and available to meet with me for video chats which are absolutely essential for me. She's very responsive to messages as well.
April has been incredible and has helped me through so much!
April has taught me some new tools to use to help me with my anxiety . She supports me and encourages me when I am depressed. She cares!
April is wonderful at encouragement, accentuating the positive, and giving gentle guidance and a positive attitude. She gives much positive feedback, and asks appropriate questions based on what my concerns are. If she hasn't heard from me, she cares enough to email me to make sure I am alright. I am very happy with our therapeutic relationship, and your platform to bring her to me in the comfort of my home. Keep up the good work!
This is my first time trying counseling and April has been very helpful and supportive. I was nervous about seeking help but she has made me feel comfortable and safe and I really appreciate that.
April is very knowledgeable in the areas that I struggle with, making very appropriate and feasible recommendations while also respecting my own autonomy. She is very responsive and takes care to address all points brought up.
April has been doing a wonderful job helping me with everything that has been on my mind. No issue, no matter how trivial or how large, goes unaddressed or without a probable solution. The advice I have received has been beyond helpful, and I never once doubted her abilities. She considers all the options and all the variables and offers phenomenal advice, and I have had an amazing experience here!
April is such a lovely person! She never gives up on me even when I go MIA for a few days. She’s always friendly and caring.
Excellent help through a wide variety of options.
April has displayed a professional caring approach to my case, under the circumstances with differing time frames. She has taken the time to get the proper information which is important particularly in my case, and she has showed exceptional intuition.
