She received her Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Latino Mental Health. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, April has worked with families who have children that are on the Autism Spectrum and others that are diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, Intellectual Disabilities, and other Neurodevelopmental disorders.
April is a bi-cultural, bilingual (Spanish), Latina who has experience working with individuals and families of diverse cultures, ethnicities, and ages (2 and older). She has provided treatment alongside speech and occupational therapists, as well as social workers and psychologists.
Her outpatient hospital experience focuses on behavior management which includes the following; toilet training, coping skills, accepting and processing diagnosis, parent training, providing strategies to support growth of social awareness and interactions, and establishing a functional form of verbal or nonverbal communication using the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). She has created various visuals including short stories, visual schedules, and reward charts to help manage rigidity and behavior concerns both in school and home settings.
April views therapy as a collaborative process where it is important to take the time to identify treatment goals and adapt treatment strategies so that they can be used independently and across settings. Clients who work with April can look forward to gaining accurate and simple to understand information about a diagnosis and most importantly feel the support of a competent professional.
