Relationships can be a source of tremendous joy and can also be the source of some of our greatest pain. Relational pain can be caused by a breakdown in connection over the course of years or in the wake of significant events such as life transitions, grief, attachment injuries, or personality differences. I specialize in helping couples navigate the difficult terrain of the here and now of their stories to the other side of hope, healing, and connection.
I am passionate about faith, family, and relationships. I specialize in working with committed couples who have experienced distress in their relationship due to difficult life circumstances, and help them find their way back to meaningful connection. I do this by providing a thorough assessment and utilizing research based methods to help quickly triage couples who are in crisis. Couples learn how to not just treat the symptoms of what may be going on relationally, but to identify a roadmap to engage in their relationship with a new understanding of what is blocking their emotional and physical connection, and to find their way back to safe connection that they long to experience.
My goal for clients is to help them engage in deeper and more meaningful ways with the things that matter most to them. My hope is that every individual and couple that enters my office feels seen and heard as they actively engage in the counseling process and explore their own unique story and passions. As we look below the surface level of often distressing emotions and behaviors, we begin to explore deeper underlying heart felt beliefs about self and others. I take the deep dive with my clients to difficult personal and relational spaces to help them shed light and hope into some of the most difficult and distressing experiences in their stories. We journey together towards wholeness, healing, restoration, and improved connection with the things and people that matter most to them.
When I am not in the office I enjoy playing Bach on the piano, sipping coffee with friends and getting new stamps in my passport as I travel with my husband and four children around the globe exploring this beautiful world. Having lived in south east Asia as a family for a season we were given the gift of becoming global citizens which has given me a bigger view of the world and informs my perspective on life.

Care Coordinator

My faith fuels my passion to encourage others to work towards restoration with themselves and within their relationships. I want individuals to be refreshed in who they are so they can know and become the best version of themselves. I want therapy to be a place where a person feels safe to unpack the difficult parts of themselves and feels supported in that process, but also encouraged that they do not have to stay there – healing is possible.
As a training coordinator in the mental health field for over 10 years, I specialize in providing mentorship and support to new and developing therapists as they journey towards becoming the professional they dreamed they could be. I am available for consultation and supervision services for Licensed Professional Counselors seeking a Clinical license.
When not in the office, I find the most joy in spending time with my support system which includes my husband, my fur babies, and my close family and friends. I love to read and listen to music and my favorite place to do that is on the beach.

April provides a safe space for couples to process relationship strengths and growth areas in a non threatening way utilizing Prepare/ Enrich. Couples receive a full report and are led through guided conversations that strengthen their relationship.

April shares with us some of the unique challenges couples are facing during this time of uncertainty and ways she can walk alongside them during such a significant time in their life’s journey.

April provides support to counselors seeking supervision and support to pass state licensing exams. Groups are forming for clinicians preparing for both the NCE and NCMHCE

Therapy has been so beneficial to me personally as well as something for which I have a tremendous amount of respect. Helping others is something I find incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. I am very grateful to be able to work in this space to assist this wonderful team of providers and clients who are putting in the hard work. 

When I am not working, I enjoy slowing down in nature. I love spending time with my husband, son, two dogs and three cats!
