Testimonials From Clients

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 many 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.

Thank you to your professional staff

Hi, Dr. April.

If you don't mind, please pass this information along to your staff psychologist. She has been incredible over the past couple of sessions; insightful, informative, and has assisted me well. When I began, my driving anxiety left me frozen and avoiding the road, but with her help, it is significantly better, even in this short amount of time. I credit that to The April Center for Anxiety’s guidance. I continue to ride out the momentum of my progress and the anxiety is nearly non-existent. Many thanks to you and your staff therapist. Your services are invaluable and I'm better because of them!

Sincerely,
Jason R.

I felt a difference quickly

My anxiety struggles were not greatly helped by passive, listening therapy. It was only when I began my proactive work with Dr. April that I felt a true understanding and dissolve of circulating fears. The tools he teaches assisted me and continue to -- I felt a difference quickly. Take his hand and face your fears.

Tools to change my life!

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 am so grateful

I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with The April Center for Anxiety! I had been suffering with Emetophobia since I was twelve years old and my life was so limited. When I called on Dr. April for help it had gotten to a point where I felt as though I was living in a box. I was unable to eat in public. Unable to be a passenger in a car or any other form of transportation. Too afraid to travel far from home, and deathly afraid of germs. I felt so alone in this struggle for so long. It’s a lonely phobia. Being an “Emet” was shameful and embarrassing for me. I tried to hide it the best I could. Most people hadn’t heard of the phobia, and I didn’t even know what I suffered from for well over two decades.

I knew I needed help so I called Dr. April. I wanted a life I could be proud of and I knew I was headed for a life of regrets.

The first big step would be to actually show up at the first session and talk about me and my phobia. The thought of this nearly paralyzed me but I made it in. You see, the only way to really squash this irrational fear (as well as all other irrational fears) is to face it head on. It’s to do the work. The hardest part is sticking with it and doing the homework given in order to really rid the fear.

I can honestly say without a doubt, I did the work and am reaping the benefits. It wasn’t easy but the life I have now is what was intended for me.

I wouldn’t have been able to make it through without the tools The April Center provided me in my treatment. I know I can deal with anything in my life now with dignity.

Today, I accept the fact that there are many things in life I have no control over and this is okay with me. Life happens and I can embrace all aspects of it.

Tami, Los Angeles, CA

I'm so much happier!

After only 1 session I felt better

I had suffered from intense, debilitating anxiety and severe panic attacks for 8 months before I contacted Dr. Craig April. I had seen several specialists, invested in books and recorded programs and even completed an outpatient program, yet I was still suffering. I thought I would never be "normal" again. It was not until I met Dr. April that I finally realized I could overcome my fears. He presented everything in a compassionate, straight forward and understandable new way that really made sense and put me in control. From the first contact I had with him I knew that there was something different. He took time to speak with me at length on our first phone conversation and gave me hope that I could be well again.

After only one session with him I felt better and learned powerful techniques to take care of myself. After the second session I was confident enough to take two trips back East and handle my anxiety with no problem. Before meeting with Dr. April I could barely leave the house. Today I consider myself recovered and not only am I "normal" again but I am better and stronger than I was before the anxiety disorder. I continue to recommend Dr. April to anyone that needs help with anxiety or panic and feels that there is no hope. There is.

Success after just 3 sessions!

After 6 months of suffering with panic attacks, I called Dr. April. After just three sessions, I was able to manage my feelings of panic. Instead of spending countless hours browsing on the internet for help and making yourself more anxious, call a professional -- call Dr. April!
