My Approach to Helping

April Mizell is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who enjoys working with clients to assist them in finding out what they can do to heal themselves and assist them in looking inward to find out why they may have been experiencing particular emotions; there is a reason why clients are angry, depressed, anxious, or have a low self-esteem. April wants to help her clients know how to react to the actions of others because we all own our own behaviors. April assists in helping her clients build healthy boundaries with family members and friends and helps her clients bring themselves into a healthy environment.

April Mizell is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and received her Master's of Arts Degree from Liberty University. April has two years of experience in the mental health field. She likes working with clients who need assistance with anxieties of all forms, depression, and life transitions. April has a passion for assisting clients in finding their true selves and assisting the client in looking inward to assist her clients in their own growth. She also uses the following modalities: Client-Centered therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. April also enjoys assisting her clients in establishing healthy boundaries.

“How are you really doing?” Does this question make you nervous? Does this sound familiar to you? "I'm so overwhelmed. I'm too busy to even take a breath. It's so hard to stay patient and calm because I have too much in my head." So often our lives are crowded, overfull, and overwhelming, and in turn, block us from being able to find fulfillment.

Are you stressed, worried, feeling depressed? Facing a difficult situation? Concerned about yourself, your relationships, your family? Life stressors can be overwhelming. They can also be opportunities for discovery, change, and growth. The decision to seek counseling can be the first step to learning new ways to approach and overcome problems. You are not “crazy” if you are seeking therapy; everyone needs it sometime in their lives. Maybe you just need help establishing boundaries? There are different types of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy. My approach to counseling is "eclectic" - meeting the unique needs of clients - providing a supportive holistic approach to resolve problems and foster growth. My goal as your therapist is to assist you in slowing things down and seeing them from a different perspective. Then help you to see what is more meaningful for you and establish healthy boundaries.

Finding someone to truly see and hear us is often where we find healing. In doing this, we can restore hope in the future, realign with the values and desires we hold most dear, and connect more deeply and more meaningfully with those around us. It's my hope to help you along the way to feeling restored to yourself, your family, and your life. Let's talk.
