The April Center For Anxiety Attack Management gave me the tools to change my life! As long as I can remember I had suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I was in and out of therapy for 20+ years. The world had become a scary place, and it kept shrinking. I didn’t understand what was happening internally until I saw the show Obsessed. It clicked, and I saw a new treatment that could maybe make a difference. I did research and learned that not only was there a term for my phobia, but it was way more common than I could imagine. I started individual therapy at The April Center. We took everything slowly, going at my own pace, but the more I did, the better I felt, and the more I wanted to do. Thanks to Dr. April and The April Center, I was completely present at my wedding, which is the best gift ever! Now I am outside of my head, and enjoying things as I should!

I came to Dr. April with a debilitating fear - the inability to drive on the freeway. My life wasn't always like this. I drove the freeway for over 10 years without any issues, until I experienced two intense panic attacks that scared me from getting back on the freeway. It didn't make sense and the longer I waiting to get back on, the more intense my fear became. This fear stopped me from going out of town and visiting friends that lived too far. It took me double the time to get to a destination and I was always scared someone would ask me for a ride and I would have to create some dumb story as to why I was taking the side streets. No one knew. I was embarrassed. I was ashamed. And I let this go on for 8 years. That's when I had enough! I tried therapy in the past and it didn't work, so while I was seeking help, I wasn't convinced I could be fixed. Even reading positive reviews like this, I would think, "I'm probably the one who can't be fixed." Then I found Dr. April. To my own amazement (not Dr. April's), I was able to conquer my fear! Throughout the process, Dr. April trusted me, believed in me and never once made me feel small, which was a fear in and of itself. We worked hard together to get to the root cause of my fear and after sessions both in-person and over the phone, I'm freeway driving everyday! There is no magic pill to conquer your fears, only dedication, hard work and Dr. April.
Thanks Dr. April for guiding me to become a stronger person. I'm so much happier! I think any client is lucky to have you, as I was! Thanks again for all you do to change people's lives!
