Testimonial

I came to Dr. April with a debilitating fear - the inability to drive on the freeway. ... 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!
