My Approach to Helping

April is a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern. She has spent the last two years providing talk therapy to university students, student-athletes, and teams, and facilitating equine-assisted therapy. She has a strong desire to expand her reach beyond assisting young adults to help older adults. April specializes in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, adjustment issues (phase of life transitions), self-esteem issues, and educationcareer concerns.

April completed her Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of North Florida. She is a retired military officer and former group fitness certified personal trainer. April's background has provided her with a wealth of experience in inspiring and developing individuals and teams. She brings this skill set into the therapy space to assist those in distress with reaching their highest potential. She prides herself on being open-minded, and easy to confide in. She believes mental health must be holistically cultivated by improving the mind, body, and spirit.

We all have a story, but our story can sometimes overtake our entire identity and leave us with a great deal of distress. However, everyone deserves to have their story heard. April takes pride in her ability to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to share your story. She believes there is no "one size fits all" approach to counseling, but her goal will always be the same: to help you re-write your story while becoming a better representation of yourself each day.
