I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and have experience working with individuals young and older adults, couples, and families. I have worked in the counseling field since 2012. I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology at Jacksonville University and my Master’s Degree at Liberty University. My masters training had a precise emphasis on integrating psychology, theology, and spirituality. The first three years of clinical work I trained with a licensed clinical psychologist in psychological and academic assessment and formal diagnostic decision making. I have three certifications: (1) Acute Stress, Grief, and Trauma (2) Post-traumatic Stress and Trauma with Military Application (3) Pairs Couple Enrichment. Recently, I graduated with a Post-baccalaureate in Clinical Psychology from Fielding Graduate University. I served as an advanced researcher with Fielding Graduate University’s Forensic and Neuropsychology Research lab focusing mostly on personality disorders. In August 2016, I presented at the American Psychological Convention on my research of Personality Disorders.
I do consider my counseling to be a calling from God. However, I will accept and respect any person’s values and beliefs. Therefore, treatment plans and all interventions are decided collaboratively! Regardless of your preference, my treatment plans will include new research, patient motivation, and patient practice of new behavior and thinking. Therefore, therapy will likely result in homework assignments to do outside of session. I believe homework or self-experiments will motivate you to continue in healthy change! I will provide a supportive, warm, and challenging environment for you. Whether you are looking for a Christian counselor or not a christian counselor, I am prepared to meet you where you are and help you find the road back to healing. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!

Good listener, compassionate and is good with humor to lighten otherwise heavy topics. There were times I smiled instead of frowned and felt like she was that one good friend with terrific advice and guidance, while still being professional. She has definitely helped me overcome some demons that have plagued me my whole life. I can confidently say that my future looks brighter because of working with April.
I left each session with a weight off my shoulders
April Stone is an amazing therapist who really genuine cares for me. She is a joy to talk to! Her experience with trauma really helps me figure out a lot about my past and what prompted my present decisions. I'm thankful for her.
It's only been a few sessions, but she has already helped so much! She respects my boundaries, works to keep me on track, and has put names to many of my issues. She is knowledgeable on the issues I have brought to her and gives me worksheets to work on in between sessions. She responds to all messages in a timely manner. I am very happy and comfortable with the match!
April is a good listener, intelligent, thoughtful, and considerate. She has helped bring clarity and new and appropriate ways of viewing formerly difficult situations. She has allayed any of my initial misgivings about the potential efficacy of this web based approach to counseling.
April is amazing she listens and is very honest and real. She gives direction and helps you to look at things in a different perspective. Thank you April, you are truly a gift from God.
April is professional and reliable. She makes me feel comfortable and safe. April is accommodating and a good listener.
