April approaches the therapy process primarily through a strengths based, solution focused and structural family therapy lens which allows her to use techniques that build on client's strengths, resiliency and the qualities they possess while helping them achieve balance in their lives. She also utilizes motivational interviewing, stages of change and dialectical behavioral therapy techniques in her practice. April enjoys co-constructing goals with clients in a directive yet collaborative manner so they play an active role in their therapeutic process. She believes approaching therapy in this way creates a safe environment where clients can feel motivated about the changes they want to make.
I enjoy being outdoors fishing, rafting, camping, hiking, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
