Dr. April Piercy is a Marriage & Family Therapist who has experience working with individuals, couples, and families, as well as psychoeducational groups. Dr. Piercy has over 15 years of experience in Human Services where she worked as a domestic violence educator, mental health counselor, social worker, and adjunct faculty member. Dr. Piercy’s goal is to create a safe place for clients who are apprehensive about participating in therapy. Dr. Piercy’s development of a safe environment is demonstrated by her openness, honesty, attentiveness, caring, and encouraging attitude towards clients who are in need of change.
Dr. Piercy has experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as an intervention to assistant clients with significant changes (i.e. changing negative thoughts to positive thoughts) and using Bowen Family Systems as an intervention to aid families in examining family unit connections. Dr. Piercy acknowledges that core beliefs can affect how individuals and families view themselves; however, learning appropriate coping skills can support rational and realistic thoughts which lead to positive changes.
Dr. Piercy specializes in working with clients who have experienced domestic violence, sexual abuse, grief and bereavement, depression and anxiety, and anger management. Seeking therapy can be a huge step in a person’s life and recognizing that your self-awareness is the key to a new beginning is tremendous.
Dr. Piercy’s hourly rate is not fixed; she’s open to talking with new clients about their fee options and encourages you to reach out if you’d like to learn more about working with her.
