Announcement icon I continue to offer telehealth sessions as well as safety protocols for individuals coming into the office for appointments.
Hi! I'm Dr. April Watkins but most of my clients refer to me as April. I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated to make positive changes in their lives....whatever that looks like for them. Many individuals I see struggle with some form of anxiety or depression but how this presents is so different for each person. I focus on providing evidence based treatment but tailor it to the individual and their own experiences and needs. My experience has shown me that people do not fit neatly into a "category" and clients' perception of their progress is most important.
My training and experience allows me to work with a variety of client concerns to the adult population. Common areas of focus include anxiety, depression, work stress, substance use and I have specialized training in working with older adults, particularly in evaluating for presence of cognitive impairment and educating families around this issue.
I currently work in a small private practice. Our building is actually a house converted into office space, which creates a more homey and less clinical feel. Reaching out for help is often scary. Myself and my office aim to make the process as easy as possible. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
