April Dupree is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). She provides an eclectic approach technique while assuring that her therapeutic techniques are what best suit the client. While specializing in counseling for depression, anxiety, life transitions, domestic violence, sexual issues, self-esteem, suicidal ideation and previous suicide attempts, PTSD, and more, she primarily uses client-centered, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and as a trained Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist, she is also able to help individuals impacted by trauma in their lives. April believes that most clients issues are stemmed from some sort of trauma in their life.
As a graduate of Liberty University, she received a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling. She completed her graduate practicum and internship at One-Eighty Counseling. She has also worked in an administrative role at One-Eighty Counseling. April has a diverse background in business, real estate, and designing houses, but has always felt that she was being called to help others. She believes when given proper guidance, people can become more capable of drawing out their own strengths and realize their potential to live fulfilling and happy lives.
April is a proud member of the American Counseling Association. As an advocate with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, she is also trained in presenting “Talk Saves Lives” and “More Than Sad”. April is continuously seeking to gain more skills through continuing her education, while balancing her work life, in order to assist her clients in meeting their goals for a happier life. When April isn’t helping others, she enjoys reading, spending time with her family and her animals, and relaxing. April believes that “It is okay to not be okay” and “You don’t know until you know, and then you know”. Stay Positive!
