April Lamb, M.A., AMFT
REGISTERED ASSOCIATE MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST
I provide therapy for individuals and adolescents who seek a deeper understanding of themselves, their relationships, and overarching context in order to create a healing narrative that allows for change and growth.
I am inspired by the uniquely creative way that each human learns to survive. I am a deeply empathic, highly-sensitive, and warm person who is passionate about nurturing others on their own inherently creative journey of healing.
Prior to working in mental health, I worked with all types of creatives within the entertainment industry for over 14 years. My predominant struggle was with identifying and expressing my own voice, instead choosing to give my energy solely to my work and neglecting my true self. I reached a point where I needed to learn self-compassion, how to express my needs clearly to myself and others, and how to set appropriate boundaries for my well-being. Because of this, I am drawn to uplifting and empowering the voices of others. One at a time, we can work toward a more cohesive, restorative, and emotionally intelligent world.
I am a registered associate marriage and family therapist currently practicing in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner and work primarily through a trauma-informed and family systems lens. I received my master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and trained at the Antioch University Counseling Center, a non-profit community mental health clinic, under the supervision of Shereen Hariri. I previously attended the College of Motion Picture Arts at Florida State University. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
