My Approach to Helping

My name is April McClellan, and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I completed my master’s degree in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy at the University of Phoenix in 2010, and I have over 10 years of clinical experience across a variety of settings (outpatient substance abuse treatment, community mental health, nonprofit, and private practice).

I have also facilitated anger management groups and grief counseling support groups for victims of crime in the city of Los Angeles. I have provided clinical and administrative supervision to associate social work and marriage and family therapy interns, and I have a comprehensive range of clinical experience working with individuals and groups in the following areas:
• Depression and bipolar disorder
• Anxiety disorders
• Child and adolescent issues
• Complicated grief
• Anger and stress management
• Trauma and abuse
• Suicide assessment and risk reduction
• Couple’s conflict
• Group psychotherapy
• Dual diagnosis (mental health and substance abuse)
• Self-esteem issues

My approach to therapy is collaborative in the development of treatment goals and ongoing assessment and evaluation of therapeutic relationships and progress. Services include individual, couples, family, and group therapy. I have been trained in Individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (INDCBT); Triple P Parenting (PPP); Seeking Safety (SS); Moral Reconation Therapy; Motivational Interviewing, Crisis Oriented Recovery Services (CORS), FOCUS for Families and Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths Assessment Tool (CANS).

I utilize a variety of techniques and skills and therapeutic modalities (Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, relaxation techniques, mindfulness, psychoeducation, and behavior modification) that can assist the client in maximizing hisher potential in their mental health and wellness.
I believe in working in partnership with my clients, utilizing their strengths and willingness to face challenges and achieve their goals. I embrace the importance of identifying all aspects of a client’s life that impacts their well-being including their physical health, support systems, work andor school environment, and faithspirituality in the therapeutic process.
