Testimony from some of Dr. April Brown’s former interns:

“I worked under Dr. Brown for my entire clinical cycle and I feel really lucky to have had her as my supervisor. She has so much knowledge in the field and is truly business savvy which is exactly the kind of experience I was hoping for as a supervisee. I knew that private practice was the route I wanted to take right out of grad school and Dr. Brown created an open environment where I was able to learn the ins and outs of private practice in ways that I would have missed out on had I interned at an agency. I’m really grateful for the whole experience!”

~ Nicole Geddie

“Finding a supervisor who will guide you through the internship years is an important task, and I was lucky and glad that I found Dr. Brown who took me as an intern. During supervision time, it is a journey towards growth, and as an intern, I needed a supervisor who could understand both the objective and subjective factors that new beginning counselors will face in their supervision years. Dr. Brown provided guidance on the counseling process and how the counselor interns will be able to be successful in their internship. I do thank you Dr. Brown for sharing her experiences and guiding me during my internship, and I strongly recommend her to any counselor intern who is beginning the internship journey. “

~ Carlos Moreira, LMHC

Dr. Brown truly cares about her interns, whenever needing guidance, she was always there and willing to provide feedback. Dr. Brown always believed in me and challenged me professionally to pursue my dreams in opening my own private practice. Through her guidance, support, and mentorship. I am have been able to establish a successful practice of my own.”

~ Jessica Sagastume, LMHC

“A consummate counseling-supervisor, Dr. April Brown demonstrated her advanced skill and experience during my experience in supervision with her. Between her clear expertise regarding how to properly supervise and her clear dedication to the profession, I acquired invaluable experience and I progressed in a timely fashion to successfully acquiring my Florida mental health counseling license. I am very happy that I chose Dr. April Brown for supervision.”

~ Michael O’Brien, M.A. M.Ed. LMHC

“Dr. April Brown has provided me with supervision for licensure for the past three years. As a supervisor, she is encouraging, supportive, flexible, and always available when a difficult situation arises. She delicately pushed me out of my comfort zone and supported me from the ground up with my now thriving private practice. Dr. Brown’s guidance and professionalism are what led me to finalize my Mental Health Counselor License. ”

~ Kimberly Rogers, LMHC

“As a clinical supervisor, Dr. April Brown, provided consistent support and encouragement allowing me to develop a clinical approach which reflects my personal goals and style. During, the time I was becoming licensed, there were moves and shifts. Dr. Brown made sure that there was enough physical and emotional space as well as consistent supervision of our work. She provided candid and non-judgmental support as well as ethical direction teaching me to find what was clinically appropriate. Dr. Brown always following up on clinical recommendations. Her supervision, like her demeanor, has always been consistent and growth-oriented.

Dr. Brown is a brilliant mentor and someone anyone would benefit from aspiring to emulate. She is kind and thoughtful, disciplined, and forward-thinking. She is an unstoppable and fearless innovator. She has this uncanny ability to make people, and me, feel comfortable and safe enough to speak my truth. When tough subjects arise, through coaching and direction, her presence steers conversation to a helpful, solution-oriented place. I have never seen her get stuck. I marvel at how she encourages every person I have ever seen her in contact with to feel comfortable and reach higher toward goals they never dreamed they could bring to fruition.”
Very truly, Raina Burlak, LMHC NCC
