About me

Starting therapy is a brave decision and I want to acknowledge your commitment to your well -being. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of New York who is passionate about helping people with life difficulties. Change is possible and I would like to welcome you to Better Help!

My goal as a therapist is to support you on your journey to self- empowerment. I have a master’s degree in Social Work from Syracuse University as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Child and Family Studies with a minor in Psychology. It is important to understand that I can not provide any medical advice in regards to psychotropic medications or medical health conditions. I will create a space free from judgment for you to share your thoughts and feelings and support you in the decisions that you feel are best for you.

I love what I do and I am excited and honored to hold space for you to share and process what is happening in your life. Together we will make a plan that works for you and moves at your own pace. All the best!

April is a guiding light and beings such care and gentleness that I’ve very much appreciated throughout my time with her.
She’s helped we rediscover what I’m capable of and I’m thankful everyday for her support.

I highly recommend April! She was an amazing counselor for the 4 months I worked with her. She did a great job breaking down information/tips/suggestions in a way that was helpful and understandable. I most enjoyed learning techniques to use when dealing with conflict in my marriage. It was especially cool that April would sometimes tell me what my husband might have been thinking (due to his reaction); and then while speaking with my husband he would say the same exact thing April had told me during our session! It was crazy because she has never spoken to my husband and was able to help me understand him and his reactions better. Thank you April for all of your dedication and help to prepare me to keep running for “my marathon” aka marriage!
