Well-read and well-traveled, April identifies with individuals who come from all walks of life. She is vegetarian and has lived in more eclectic, open minded places always pursuing passions like photography, books, and enjoying her cats while being dedicated to learning and following her curiosities.
She is the kind of therapist who recognizes that the “devil is in the details.” With an expertise in anxiety, OCD, and autism spectrum disorders, April employs an inquisitive and open style toward identifying and labeling what road-blocks might exist in life and the most effective method to navigate around obstacles. She has experience working with adults and adolescents including work within partial hospitalization programs, groups for anxiety, and groups for young adults with autism spectrum struggles to learn social acquisition skills.
For April, encouraging a better path can be achieved by sharing alternative ways of thinking and doing actions that disrupt unhelpful habits. With these new skills, life can become both a more meaningful and a manageable experience.
April believes that therapy is a chance to engage while picking up the skills we need to live better. It’s one of the best investments anyone can make in themselves. Guests experience her as smart, investigative, structured, and someone who just “gets it” when it comes to anxiety. She is currently accepting new adolescent and adult guests at the Wicker Park studio.
