I have a unique approach to therapy in that my educational background has allowed me to be trained in classic therapy modalities like CBT and DBT along with Creative Arts Therapy methods. I like to implement creative arts and creativity in general to classic therapy practice as client is comfortable. In addition to my creative approach to therapy I keep in mind values that influence my practice. I treat the client as an equal and respect the client's perspective and lived experience. I keep a non judgmental therapy space and am open to all orientations and lifestyles seeking therapy to increase their life satisfaction and to decrease feelings like anxiety and depression. I am a therapist who also comes form a multicultural perspective and like to keep in mind the clients macro and microenvironments that contribute to their lived experience and beliefs.

Approach Description: In my therapy practice I work to meet the client where they are at. I respect that it takes a lot of strength to seek help and am willing to work with the client to meet their therapy goals. I utilize classic therapy modalities such as CBT, DBT and attachment theory in combination with different creative methods to help client assess, emotionally process and cope with their issues through different psychotherapy discussions, psychoeducation sessions and art directives. * Creativity is subjective and comes in all forms and client meets the client where they are at in terms of comfortability with artistic expression and mediums.*

April Tettemer Practice Description
My practice is influenced by both my educational background, work experience and lived experience. I have volunteered, worked and/or interned in multiple settings in mental health including hospice care, rape crisis center, outpatient hospitals, inpatient hospitals, medical hospitals and private practice settings. I have worked with clients of all cultural backgrounds, religious affiliations, and socioeconomic status. I am open to learning and continued research as needed for client's coming from an area unfamiliar to me/ willing to learn from my client's expert experience as a lived person of that identity.
