About

Do you feel like your world is falling apart and no one understands why things are so hard for you when it seems easy for others? Has your thinking changed? Are you suddenly struggling at work or school? Experiencing anxiety or depression?
As a Counselor, I assess, educate, and assist clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and cognitive functioning deficits such as learning differences, attention difficulties (ADD/ADHD), concussion, traumatic brain injury (TBI), cerebrovascular accident/infarct, and degenerative diseases.
My goal is to offer a supportive environment for providing functional assessment and education, coping skills, and emotional self-management skills, which enable clients to cope with learning differences, life changes caused by difficulties in thinking (cognitive deficits), and emotional instability.

April Bryden's Groups

Concussion: What you need to know.

Consider your brain like water in a glass, when the glass abruptly stops, the fluid is forced unevenly to one side. Physical contact is not even required. Like gelatin, the brain experiences damage from stretching, snapping, and pressure against the sides of the skull, as well as, bony protrusions. A mild to moderate concussion can cause debilitating symptoms and make normal functioning difficult. Understanding what is happening is the first step in managing a concussion. Clients / family who seek help early are better prepared to deal with symptoms and experience less anxiety and depression. Coping skills and neuroplasticity are key.

More about this group

Social Skills Group

Our social skills groups are assembled appropriately for the needs and age group of the persons attending. The group uses coping skills, mindfulness, self-regulation, and scenario reenactment exercises to build skills in basic communication, interpersonal relationships, empathy and rapport, problem solving, and accountability. At this time groups are available for young clients with Aspergers, Autism, and ADHD. Please see website for more information.

Dealing with Dementia (Transitioning)

Understanding what is happening to you or your loved one is the first step in managing dementia. In fact, I quickly stop using the word and focus on "Transitioning". Clients and family who seek help early on handle the transition better with less anxiety and depression. Learn important ways to make everyone comfortable and safe. Learn coping skills, tips & tricks, and even ways to utilize neuroplasticity.
