Professional statement

April Lau, LMHC is a Cognitive Behavioral therapist. She works with teens and adults of all ages & genders. She especially enjoys working with college-aged clients and people in early adulthood. She sees students, people in the beginning stages of their careers, highly talented individuals, people who are successful, and people who struggle with the day-to-day. Many of April’s clients come in when they are not feeling like themselves or they are tired of being held back by depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, and relationship problems. Often, they have beliefs about themselves that prevent them from doing what they want in life. Many clients seek counseling when social anxiety or performance anxiety prevents them from making and maintaining connections with others.

April brings a sense of curiosity to her work with clients. She wants to get to know each client as an individual. Every therapy relationship with April starts with a conversation about who you are and what you are looking to get out of counseling. Clients often tell her they feel hopeful and less anxious after their first discussion with her. As you continue working together, she’ll help you to identify goals and to create a toolbox of strategies you can use to overcome barriers to living life more fully.

April is dedicated to developing partnerships with her clients. As long as she’s been in practice, she still knows that you are the expert on you and she couldn’t do this work without you.

April is active in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provider community, engaging regularly in consultation with other expert therapists, providing advice and learning from others. Outside of private practice, she loves playing outside, volunteering, meeting new people, and spending time with her husband, family, and friends.


Message to clients

I'm so glad you're taking the time to find a new therapist and would love to find out if we could make good therapy partners.

Clients typically find sessions with me to be enjoyable. We talk about what's bothering them and we have fun, even laugh a little. We come up with tasks that are approachable, breaking them down into manageable steps.

You don't have to be totally prepared to start therapy, just a desire to make your life better. I'm happy to discuss your questions in a call/message/email or to if you're ready to jump right it, schedule your first appt.

I know it can be scary to reach out. Whatever format you use to contact me, know you'll hear a friendly voice or receive an enthusiastic email back. I return every message and can't wait to meet you.

You can start in less than a week. Scheduling is easy. I even offer same-day appt options for current clients.
