April McLean, PsyD, LADC
- I work as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in both CT and FL, and I am a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor in CT.
- We are currently living in a time of uncertainty and fear. Feelings of anxiety and depression are significantly increased in people across the board. For some, symptoms from past traumatic events are being triggered. Other people are having increased conflict with their partner or they are struggling with the sudden transition into a full-time parenting/home schooling role. Many people are using or abusing more substances as a way to cope.
- I create a comfortable environment that is accepting of all people, regardless of the place you are in or the hesitancy you may be feeling about beginning the process of therapy, treatment, or evaluation. I work with clients by developing a relationship through genuine and caring interactions, by meeting you in the present moment, and helping identify your strengths. This can help people work through making difficult decisions, supporting life transitions, and managing mental illness and/or substance abuse issues.
- I also specialize in EMDR treatment, not only for people with PTSD symptoms, but those who are looking to minimize substance abuse cravings and people with other mental health symptoms. EMDR is a treatment with a beginning and an end. Therefore, my approach is to meet as many times per week as a client’s schedule allows, so improvement is seen quickly.
