I became a follower of Christ when I was 22 years old. God revealed to me as I was attempting to become a veterinarian that I was going the wrong way. I took some courses in psychology and from there all the bricks laid themselves. God has used me to meet people when they are hurting most and I am humbled by that. I believe that I am a vessel and that he gives me wisdom and revelation about my patients needs. I believe I can see, hear, and intervene more confidently knowing it is not I who is the wise counselor. However, I do my job as to be educated in certain areas as needed. I specialize in trauma, grief, and relationship issues. I believe in using God's word for teaching, intervening, and living healthy. The word of God never returns void! My greatest achievement has been to lead 6 people to Christ, many to repentance, and some to a re-committing. When I retire these will be what I consider my success. I never judge harshly or make patients feel shame. I believe in acting just as Christ does meeting you where you are, accepting you, and allowing you the free will to make transformative change. My favorite verse is Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Lets work together to see what God wants to work together for you in this counseling process!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Very friendly and knowledgeable.
April Stone seems very experienced and serious about her clients' needs and concerns. She definitely has a gift for counseling, but is also well versed and well learned. Her approach is efficient, but caring and God-centered. I know she wants to see me change and grow and our sessions are a good use of the time. She is also very good about getting back to me between sessions when I have concerns that arise outside of our scheduled time. She is a blessing. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling in a variety of ways.
April is great at telling you what you need to hear, but also being supportive and encouraging. She has been helping me during a difficult time in my spiritual journey and has the skills of a spiritual warrior.
I had an unfortunate experience with a Christian counselor before April. I myself am experienced in the realm of mental health and was immensely relieved to find both a skilled clinician and faithful practicing Christian who could understand what it is like going through this world having a relationship with God.
I think April is outstanding in her area of expertise and I have already recommended her to others.
I have experienced growth just in the few times that we’ve met. She’s challenged me and helped me to face some sins and fears that I’ve been hiding for years. I look forward to being well and whole in he very near future.
She is very helpful and listens to what I have to say. She also doesn't sugar coat things and tells me the truth without beating around the bush. I really appreciate that she is so straightforward with me.
