I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have worked with a variety of concerns and specialize with working with first responders. I have seen individuals in various setting and throughout the lifespan. I have a focus on working with those suffering from trauma related symptoms. I have experience working with first responders and working through daily life challenges as well as work challenges that they experience.
In addition to working with first responders, I have experience with working with a variety of mental health disorders and certified in working with trauma. I have worked in a variety of settings and with various ages, which has allowed me to have a broad range of experience and understanding.
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!

I’ve been with April for 5 years. She helped me with relationships ending, relationships starting, relationships growing, and relationships with myself. April taught me tools that I have carried with me these five years and will carry likely for the rest of my life. She gave me perspective when I needed it and an ear and support constantly. Today was my last session with her as I try to move on and take what April has taught me through the next venture of my life. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you, April, you’re invaluable.

This is my first time speaking with a therapist and I would definitely recommend speaking with anyone through BetterHelp. I wish I would have taken advantage of the service a little more but other than that it’s been going really well for me so far.
