Hello! My name is April McElroy. I am a Licensed Marital and Family Therapy practicing in Tulsa, OK. I received my Undergraduate degree in Psychology in the year 2000 from Southern Connecticut State University. I obtained my Master's of Arts Degree in Marital and Family Therapy in 2015 from Southern Nazarene University. I have experience working with severely mentally ill individuals in the residential setting. I also have experience working in the Inpatient setting with individuals struggling with mental illness and substance abuse issues.
Today there are so many things that may contribute toward feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, and can cause issues of conflict. Individuals struggling with issues such as finances, physical and emotional disabilities may find themselves in a state of feeling stuck and feeling hopeless.
I want to extend my help and hope to you. I will utilize a culturally sensitive and trauma sensitive approach in your treatment so that I can address your specific needs. I also adopt the belief that we are all human and we all experience pain. By not being alone and in isolation, we can work through that pain so that you can begin healing and living the life that you want.
I want to remind you that you have choices. If you choose me to work with you, I will honor and appreciate that choice and my work with you will reflect what your goals are and how you want to live a more fulfilling life.

The best counselor I have ever had. She takes time to listen and is in tune with your needs.
I’ve been working with April for a few weeks now and she has definitely helped me. I find her techniques are very useful to me.
April has really helped me over the past months. She's easy to get along with, is a great listener and offers very good and careful insight.
Wonderful to work with and always available
We slowly work through my problems and don’t rush things. We didn’t set clear goals of what I wanted to achieve right at the beginning, because over time the goals I seeked became clearer than when I first started.
April is amazing, professional and caring. We had troubles with time zones and connection that’s why the sessions were postponed but we figured how to fix it even though it was frustrating in the beginning.
I love the metaphors she used to help me better understand myself and the situation
I have never met with a therapist before, so my frame of reference is small, but I feel April has made it easy to confront the subjects I want to talk about and delve into. She offers a self reflection method followed by clinical advice that ads up to make sense of your current state of mind. I feel productive after a session!
April has been an incredible help to me in a very difficult time of my life. On top of all of the past trauma I’ve had throughout my life, I had a very recent and traumatic family emergency that devastated me and changed my world. April listens, cares, and advises. She has helped me find the tools within myself to continue living despite my circumstances. I could say thank you a million times and it would never be enough to adequately express my gratitude. Thank you April
I have only worked with April for a short time, but she made me feel comfortable immediately. She is warm and helpful, offering thought provoking questions as well as things to reflect on. I always leave my sessions feeling better than when I started. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
April has been an enormous help. I appreciate her compassion and ability to help me be mindful when I’ve felt overwhelmed. I highly recommend her
April has been such a great help to me so far on my journey to bettering my mental health. She is very understanding and caring. She listens to what you have to say, and also makes sure you understand her feedback/recommendations as well. I look forward to continuing to work with her.
She’s been very understanding and helpful in a short period of time.
April and I are just starting to get to know each other. I enjoy her approach and feel like she listens intently to what I have to say. I appreciate her insights, knowledge, and genuine personality.
April is great! High quality therapist, I love her intuitive approach.
She's friendly, professional, and clearly has a passion for what she does. I'd highly recommend her.
April was my first therapist and she was immensely helpful to me in dealing with my ongoing work related stress and anxiety. She also helped me identify my feelings towards my past abuse and I think I can now see what steps I need to take to move forward.
April is a very approachable, understanding counselor and she constantly challenges me to see things from a different perspective and not get caught up in my own narratives and negative thought processes. Highly recommended.
April has been truly instrumental in helping me to overcome and work through my trauma as well as my basic insecurities. I am so grateful for her for facilitating my growth and healing.
April is incredibly thoughtful in her approach to counseling. She challenges me in ways no other therapist ever has. I feel that I am making real, meaningful change within myself with April.
So far, it’s been an enlightening experience, learning more about myself and regaining confidence every day. Thanks April!
April is kind and gentle.
She’s very knowledgeable and professional.
Thank you, I feel like this will be a good match.
We're at the beginning stages of getting to know one another, so we slowly building a respect and rapport with one another and I'm happy at the pace we're doing it at. April always listens to me and encourages me to think deeper on things I say without thinking and encourages my strengths. I think this is the beginning of a great professional relationship with a very kind person.
April has been a joy to work with. She has been attentive and very helpful in regards to processing trauma and moving on with healthy coping methods.
April has been very supportive and understanding from the start of our sessions. She made me and my husband feel very comfortable and so we were able to open up about our issues. There’s still a lot of work to be done but we’re definitely making some progress.
April is my first therapist and I feel she has greatly helped me. She listens and restates, allowing me to understand my situation from a true, third-party. She then gives sound counsel, allowing me to put a name to an emotion or circumstance I have found myself in. This helps because I can now identify my struggle and move forward in healing it properly instead of ignoring it because I don't even know what it is.
I have very much enjoyed and appreciated April in our sessions.
