About Me

April Galligan, LCSW, IMH-E

Something I am passionate about?  Kids.  I enjoy working with kids and parents and can’t imagine doing anything else.  My work as a child and family therapist brings me joy and a sense of contribution to the future and the world every single day.   

I began my career as a Master Level Social Worker  at the University of Denver 16 years ago.  Since that time I’ve become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) specializing in family therapy, early childhood mental health, trauma, and postpartum therapy.  I’ve provided mental health services in offices, medical practices, family homes, and classrooms.

I am also a parent, and this is my favorite job.  It’s also the most challenging.  In all my years as a parent and provider to children I have become well-versed in early intervention services, school-based supports, and collaboration with medical providers.  As a parent to a special-needs child, I also have a perspective and personal knowledge that allows me to better support children and parents with identified disabilites and medical needs.

When I’m not working I enjoy reading, gardening, playing outside, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.  I am a native of Colorado and have lived all over the state.  Despite that, I am terrible at skiing/snowboarding but wish I could get to the mountains more often.
