April Cunningham, MA, LPCC-S, CWC (she/her/hers) believes "The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free" (Rollo May, 1981). She believes in the potential for growth is inherent in the human condition. She received her BA in Psychology and an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, both from The Ohio State University. Additionally April is a Certified Wellness Counselor, a trained Hypnotherapist and has sought training in mindfulness/meditation, nutrition, Emotional Freedom Technique, as well as other mind-body approaches. Her approach is integrative and holistic in nature, and applies existential, feminist, narrative and queer theories. She believes that anxiety and depression are symptoms of deeper issues: the lack of understanding of who we are, and the adherence to the "stories" others have given us about ourselves. If we have knowledge about who we really are and what is meaningful to us, we are free to define happiness for ourselves and take concrete steps to achieving it. April has worked as a generalist clinician, but specializes in anxiety, depression, wellness counseling, trauma, LGBTQ+ clients, and couples counseling.
