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!

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.
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!
