About April & Little A's

April provides both in-person sessions in Naperville, IL, as well as telehealth sessions virtually.

April Fitzharris, LCSW, PMH-C, has over 15 years’ experience in the mental health field with a masters in psychology, a masters in social work and a perinatal mental health certificate. April utilizes evidenced based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help drive improved quality of life, helping reduce depression and anxiety by changing thinking and behavior patterns.

We belive therapy is a place where you will be feel seen, understood and supported.  

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. Our goal is to help you sort through these new, unexpected, and overwhelming feelings and create actionable takeaways to use and apply.  We utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)  to help reduce anxiety and depression and work with you to better understand your struggles and find a new way forward.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.

April has three "Little A's" of her own and they are a large reason on why she is a strong advocate for women's mental health.  April founded Little A’s Healing with the mission of supporting women during their most challenging times. In her free time April enjoys being outside in nature, spoiling her dogs and cats, planning the next family vacation (usually somewhere warm) and chasing kids between hockey, softball and school activities.
