About Me

Hello!
Thank you for taking the time to read my page. I hope that I am able to help you in your therapeutic choice. I am a strong believer in therapy providing support and connection; as well as a way to learn healthy skills to help with any daily stressors.
I received my Associate’s degree in Early Child Development, my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health, and I am licensed through NYS. I have experience working with clients from age 12 years old and above. Furthermore, I have experience in working with addiction and eating disorders, along with other mental health diagnosis. I am trained in trauma work and I have training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). In my free time I continue my education by engaging in further trainings as well as attending conferences on topics I feel will further help those I work with.
I take a Person-Centered approach to my work. The clients I work with are important, their needs and values are a focus of my work. Each client is an individual and should be treated as such. In my work I utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness skills as well as other modalities to provide individualized therapy for my clients.
I look forward to getting to know you, and helping you through any struggles or difficulties you may be experiencing. I understand that it can be difficult to speak with someone that you don’t know. We will take the time to get to know one another and will work together.

Thank you again for your time!

April is great. This is my first time with a counselor and I feel like I was able to work through a lot of issues that I've held onto for years. April has also taught me a lot about myself and has taught me coping mechanisms to deal with my anxiety and depression. I highly recommend working with April.

I love having April as my counselor so far. I stopped seeing my previous therapist because I just wasn't getting what I needed and April has been such a refreshing change. I'm excited to continue working with her!

April is great!! I have tried therapy for years and never felt a connection with my therapist. With April I feel like I am heard and actually look forward to my therapy sessions.

April is very easy to talk to, is a good listener and helps me organize my feelings in a logical manner. Will recommend her to anyone.
