About Dr. April McDowell

Couples therapy is my specialty and I'm very passionate about giving you and your partner high quality care at all times.  

I get that coming into an office and opening up to a stranger about your relationship can be uncomfortable, awkward, and create hesitation.  Thus, I work hard to provide safety, validation, and respect throughout the treatment process.  

If you're nervous about starting therapy, know that this is very normal! I'd encourage you to try one session to see how it feels and if you feel comfortable enough to continue.  

Couples counseling can be a powerful vehicle for achieving your personal and relationship goals.  New insight is just as important as new skills in helping you reach your personal and relationship goals, and you'll get both in my care.

Ready to take the first step?

Contact me today to give your relationship the high-quality help it deserves! I offer a FREE phone consultation, up to 15 minutes.  We'll talk about your issues and see if I'm a good fit for you and your partner.

My Credentials

I'm a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT) in Virginia.  I have nearly 15 years of experience counseling and have worked with individuals, couples, and families since 2005.

I received my clinical education and training from one of the highest ranking MFT programs in the U.S. at the University of Maryland's School of Public Health.

My clinical experience includes work with individuals, families, and couples in both community-based and private practice settings in the Washington, DC and Virginia Beach areas.
