Frustrated with yourself because you can't seem to get it together and feel stuck? Feel like you have no idea how to get on track? Not clear on what you want, or know, but not sure how to get there? Feeling disconnected or unhappy in your relationships, with your partner or friends? Do you know, deep down, there has to be a better way? I help my clients work through anxiety, overwhelm, lack of clarity, work/life balance, perfectionism, self-sabotage, self-criticism, fear of failure, procrastination, self-image, body image, food or sexuality concerns, and help couples to improve communication, connection, and heal from infidelity.

I bring authenticity, compassion, humor, and optimism to my work with clients. I love helping them learn to trust their intuition, gain insight, increase self-esteem, be confident in their bodies, and find more satisfaction in their lives and relationships. Become a master of your emotions, communication and new coping skills, and find more balance and joy!

Not sure if therapy or coaching is right for you? We can discuss your goals, needs for support, and find the best fit for you. To make integrating therapy or coaching into your busy life as easy as possible, I offer in person and video sessions, and evening and weekend availability. Contact me to schedule today. I look forward to connecting with you!!!

Dr. April E. House's Groups

Women's Body Image Group

Is the way you feel about your body negatively impacting your relationship? Negative body image is one of the most prevalent issues contributing to sexless marriages. And sex is one of the top concerns that brings couples to counseling. This group will help women work through body image concerns by providing tools, exercises and a space for processing feelings to make peace with your body. In this group, you will learn to be present in your body, explore new of ways of relating to your body, and find new empowerment among women with the same desires and goals.

More about this group

Challenging Perfectionism

Do you find yourself constantly beating yourself up, procrastinating, or asking why bother? Perfectionism might be at play, even if you don't see yourself as the typical Type A perfectionist. Perfectionism can cause difficulties at work, school, and home, and can color the way one views and treats oneself. The consequences of perfectionism can wreak havoc on relationships, and rather than contribute positively to achievements and self-esteem, can actually do the opposite. This group will help you to identify where perfectionism is holding you back, and provide tools to overcome it and live your fullest life.

Mindful Eating Group

Do you struggle with emotional eating, compulsive overeating or binge eating? Or do you need support around meals after eating disorder treatment to help you bridge the gap to strengthen your recovery? In this group, you will learn to develop and apply mindfulness skills and other coping skills to be more present and in touch with your hunger and fullness cues before, during and after meals. This group will provide a supportive environment to heal your relationship with food and move towards mindful eating among peers with the same goals.
