I believe we all have the potential to grow through challenges. Rather than living in distress, we can find ways to ease through the difficulties of life. Through my work with cancer patients, I developed a therapeutic framework based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help clients with various issues move from distress toward peace. In addition, I understand that one size does not fit all, so I use an integrative approach that draws from several disciplines.

Somewhere along the way you feel you lost yourself. Whether it be in motherhood, wifehood, single-hood, your career, or in relationships. For one reason or another, the person you face in the mirror is not who you thought you would become. That very reason, brought you here and we are so glad you found us. We are here to meet you where you are. True liberation comes when we can accept all of who we are, understanding that every part, no matter how painful, deserves love and care. I help women step into full power by rediscovering self, redefining womanhood, and creating balance to maintain harmony in their lives.

I can provide a safe space where clients can explore thoughts, emotions, and behaviors freely. Regardless of cultural background or personal lifestyles, all are welcomed to explore themselves, their needs, their goals, and any concerns they may have, through a relaxed and nonjudgmental therapeutic experience. I aim to encourage, highlight, and empower those who seek clarity through difficult situations or when life appears most murky. Navigating through difficult thoughts or experiences alone may appear daunting at times. You are not alone and therapy can be that outlet to which you will be able to create your own path to healing.

Are you ready to take back control over your mental health? I believe mental health is wealth, and one of the best ways we can help and better ourselves is by taking care of our mental wellness. I’ve previously worked in various clinical settings providing individual Outpatient Therapy, including a transitional living facility, public charter elementary school, and community college. I also have experience conducting counseling groups and workshops with adults of differing ages and intellectual abilities. Lastly, I’ve worked with families to foster positive change and improve interactions.

I do not take insurance, I work with couples and individuals who are willing to do whatever it takes to save their marriage or relationship. It is my job to be a co-pilot to help guide you and your partner through the storms of conflict, infidelity, grief, trauma, and life’s transitions such as parenting, employment, and blended family issues. As a fellow relationship partner who has been married for 17 years (and counting) with three kids, I personally can relate to the ups and downs of making a relationship work.

Do you feel disconnected to yourself or your partner? Life can be hard and frustrating. In a world run by social media/screen time, we often feel "alone together". It is my belief that everyone can use a little motivation and guidance when it comes to taking charge of their own life. Whether you are battling stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, a life event, etc. it is important to have the support you need to foster change and growth in your life. Together we can build a strong foundation for you (or your relationship) to continue moving forward and tackle any roadblocks that may come in the future.

I am April Mizell and have my License in Mental Health Counseling in North Carolina. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to that you do not know from the past. We should make a connection and talk. I usually spend the beginning sessions getting to know you and what makes you tick. Then, we can do talk therapy and help you learn coping mechanisms and assist you in your healing process. By the way, I offer Christian therapy, when requested. I do not pressure others, I accept them unconditionally.

At Evolve, we have an engaged style of therapy that doesn’t let you “monologue” the session. We believe in the power of venting, and while listening is at the core of any therapeutic relationship, we are also trained to challenge those thoughts and feelings that are not serving you well. Many of our clients have had previous experiences that left them with that “been there, done that” type of feeling. That is why they came to us. We support you every step of the way, but we also challenge you and lead you to live the life you deserve. Your journey starts here.

My ideal client is one who is established in their life and community, yet they are unhappy and feel stagnant or stuck. They may struggle in their professional career or feel unfulfilled in the workplace. They may be socially isolated or do not connect well with people their age. This individual, on the outside, appears to have it all, but they are not satisfied with their life. This individual may have untreated depression and/or anxiety. They may have come from a family of dysfunction and managed to get away from it. They need someone to assist them in examining this and determine what they want out of life.
