I am a licensed independent clinical social work in the state of Minnesota and I have 20 years of experience. I have worked many years with women's issues surrounding depression, postpartum depression, and anxiety as well as relationship issues and self-esteem.
I believe a relationship is very important to help you achieve your goals. I offer a warm, calm presence and believe in respect, integrity, sensitivity and compassion. I tailor our therapy together to what works best with and for you. I can utilize many approaches such as cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, or an eclectic mix. I work with you to build goals because you know yourself best.
It takes courage to seek a better path and I am here to help you on your journey. I look forward to working together!

April is so good at listening and understanding. She lets me know that my feelings are valid and I feel better after speaking with her.
April is kind, caring, professional, and extremely good at what she does. I have noticed a huge improvement in my quality of life due in large part to sessions with her. Thank you April and thank you BetterHelp!
April listens and works to find ways to encourage me and help me in ways that will work for me. She is a great listener
April is always supportive and encouraging even when I am inconsistent with my connecting. She checks in when I do not reach out at all for a period of time. I value our communication greatly and appreciate all of her help.
April comes up with lots of solutions and she's a great listener
I already suggested to a friend they try it. I really find our sessions meaningful and healing. April has been amazing and I can tell she really cares. She offers tools and information that I can use and is a fantastic listener. I really think it is helping speaking with her and knowing there is someone who is on your team and willing and able to help me change my perspective and self image.
It's been helpful to process the mother son relationship with April. Parenting is an endlessly tiring job, but the encouragement and tools she's given me have been helpful. Her compassion is just what I needed after the pandemic parenting marathon I just endured with my boys.
April is a good listener, I schedule sporadically, but she remembers some of the issues that I mention and goes over things with me.
I felt a connection from my first chat with April. She is friendly, supportive and really helpful. It's easy to be open and honest with her, and I know she is really rooting for me. She makes me feel worthy.
April is such a kind, warm person. From the first time I spoke to her, I felt that she truly cared about me and wanted to help. She is easy to talk to and such a comforting presence, and I am so happy I found her!
I love working with April. She understands my needs and works to find what best helps me. I also find it very encouraging to have a counselor with the same Faith. April prayers with me and for me. She is great!
I absolutely adore April. I had no idea really what I was struggling with until she helped me pin point it and started working through things with me. Her expertise and guidance has challenged me to break out of my past dark mental state and progress into more of a healthy outlook. I couldn't have been more thankful that I got paired up with her because she is amazing and cares a lot about my well being and I am a more confident person today because of her encouragement.
April is a kind professional who helps you find the tools to tackle whatever you're going through. She is understanding and compassionate with some humor too. She has been such a big help for me as I work through grief and stress.
