About Me

April Galligan, LCSW, IMH-E


The comment I receive most from those I’ve worked with is that I have a calm and settling presence.    

I have a strong belief that helping young children and their parents survive and thrive emotionally and playfully will allow them to experience life exceptionally.

I am also a parent, experiencing profound love and joy along with moments of exhaustion and irritation like anyone else.  With my unique experience of having a baby in the NICU and a child with a life-long disability, I bring additional perspective and support.  My family is my foundation and drives my practice and devotion to helping others.

I enjoy working with kids and parents and can’t imagine doing anything else.  My work as a child and family therapist brings me happiness and a sense of contribution to the future and the world every single day.  I have provided supports to children and families of various diversities in doctor’s offices, schools, in family homes, and office settings.
