The April Center For Anxiety Attack Management gave me the tools to change my life! As long as I can remember I had suffered from anxiety and panic attacks. I was in and out of therapy for 20+ years. The world had become a scary place, and it kept shrinking. I didn’t understand what was happening internally until I saw the show Obsessed. It clicked, and I saw a new treatment that could maybe make a difference. I did research and learned that not only was there a term for my phobia, but it was way more common than I could imagine. I started individual therapy at The April Center. We took everything slowly, going at my own pace, but the more I did, the better I felt, and the more I wanted to do. Thanks to Dr. April and The April Center, I was completely present at my wedding, which is the best gift ever! Now I am outside of my head, and enjoying things as I should!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with The April Center for Anxiety! I had been suffering with Emetophobia since I was twelve years old and my life was so limited. When I called on Dr. April for help it had gotten to a point where I felt as though I was living in a box. I was unable to eat in public. Unable to be a passenger in a car or any other form of transportation. Too afraid to travel far from home, and deathly afraid of germs. I felt so alone in this struggle for so long. It’s a lonely phobia. Being an “Emet” was shameful and embarrassing for me. I tried to hide it the best I could. Most people hadn’t heard of the phobia, and I didn’t even know what I suffered from for well over two decades.
I knew I needed help so I called Dr. April. I wanted a life I could be proud of and I knew I was headed for a life of regrets.
The first big step would be to actually show up at the first session and talk about me and my phobia. The thought of this nearly paralyzed me but I made it in. You see, the only way to really squash this irrational fear (as well as all other irrational fears) is to face it head on. It’s to do the work. The hardest part is sticking with it and doing the homework given in order to really rid the fear.
I can honestly say without a doubt, I did the work and am reaping the benefits. It wasn’t easy but the life I have now is what was intended for me.
I wouldn’t have been able to make it through without the tools The April Center provided me in my treatment. I know I can deal with anything in my life now with dignity.
Today, I accept the fact that there are many things in life I have no control over and this is okay with me. Life happens and I can embrace all aspects of it.
