Meet April Kirkwood, LPC

I’m a small-town, Italian girl who fell in love with a rockstar when I was just 6 years old. I come from a loving but dysfunctional family. I loved my life as I was growing up and I was adored by my family, but looking back as an adult I can see where things went wrong. I learned the hard way that I needed to overcome my past and build my life for myself and my children.

Now I’m sharing my story so I can help others overcome the issues that weigh them down. Most days you can find me writing, snuggled up with my Biewer Yorkies, or possibly taking a nap after binging episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale. I love to let loose and go out dancing, sip on a cold green tea and I could eat white wedding cake all day long.

After twenty-five years of working as an educator, I am now a certified Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in addiction and dual diagnosis who is dedicated to working with those who have experienced emotional abuse, divorce, molestation, and addiction.

My professional focus is on the transformation from #MeToo into #NowME, a process that helps patients heal and rebuild their lives.

You can connect with me by email at or on any social media platform!
