About Craig April, PhD | The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management - Los Angeles

  Dr. Craig April

Craig April, PhD - anxiety doctor los angeles

Founder of The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management - a well-known anxiety treatment center in Los Angeles - Dr. Craig April has become one of the most active and popular anxiety doctors in the country.  He has been treating anxiety for over 20 years and is an expert in cognitive-behavioral techniques focused on anxiety relief. He is the author of "The Anxiety Getaway", an anxiety self help book to overcome all aspects of anxiety.  

Dr. April is a professional member of The Anxiety Disorders Association of America and The Obsessive Compulsive Foundation, has been quoted nationally in magazines and newspapers, has been an international radio guest, served on filmed panels and speaks regularly in the community.   He is a featured psychologist on the A&E Television show OBSESSED

Obsessed is a documentary series, much like Intervention in style, that documents the struggles of those with anxiety disorders, such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety and Phobias, as they undergo Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).  Dr. April treats the show's participants with CBT and, more specifically, applies the most scientifically proven anxiety treatment technique of Exposure and Response Prevention. 

 “I am committed to helping people break free from anxiety symptoms so that they may live the life they are meant to live – one filled with calm, confidence, and freedom,” says Dr. April.

Fascinated by the nature of his own fears and realization that we grow by strategically facing discomfort, Dr. April nurtured this interest as he entered graduate school in 1991.  By the time he obtained his Masters in 1994, his Ph.D. in 1996, followed by his licensure as a psychologist in 1998, Dr. April had extensively treated anxiety disorders in clinic, hospital, and university settings.

Based on his continued focus in private practice working with those struggling with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Panic Disorder, Phobias, Social Anxiety and Generalized Anxiety, Dr. April established The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management - Los Angeles to provide specialized and proven anxiety treatment. The April Center for Anxiety Attack Management - Los Angeles offers individual, group and family therapy with anxiety treatment plans uniquely designed to make progress as quickly as possible.  Dr. April helps anxiety sufferers daily and says, “It’s incredibly inspiring. Everyone can learn how to face what scares them”.

More Testimonials

I had suffered from intense, debilitating anxiety and severe panic attacks for 8 months before I contacted Dr. Craig April. I had seen several specialists, invested in books and recorded programs and even completed an outpatient program, yet I was still suffering. I thought I would never be "normal" again. It was not until I met Dr. April that I finally realized I could overcome my fears. He presented everything in a compassionate, straight forward and understandable new way that really made sense and put me in control. From the first contact I had with him I knew that there was something different. He took time to speak with me at length on our first phone conversation and gave me hope that I could be well again.

After only one session with him I felt better and learned powerful techniques to take care of myself. After the second session I was confident enough to take two trips back East and handle my anxiety with no problem. Before meeting with Dr. April I could barely leave the house. Today I consider myself recovered and not only am I "normal" again but I am better and stronger than I was before the anxiety disorder. I continue to recommend Dr. April to anyone that needs help with anxiety or panic and feels that there is no hope. There is.

Hi, Dr. April.

If you don't mind, please pass this information along to your staff psychologist. She has been incredible over the past couple of sessions; insightful, informative, and has assisted me well. When I began, my driving anxiety left me frozen and avoiding the road, but with her help, it is significantly better, even in this short amount of time. I credit that to The April Center for Anxiety’s guidance. I continue to ride out the momentum of my progress and the anxiety is nearly non-existent. Many thanks to you and your staff therapist. Your services are invaluable and I'm better because of them!

Sincerely,
Jason R.
