As a behavioral health therapist for Caron’s First Responders Program, April Reed offers individual, group, and family therapy and provides case management to patients and their families.
That work includes contacting employee assistance programs (EAPs), supervisors, and others as needed so that patients can return to their jobs. “I advocate for them from the time they come into treatment and into their recovery,” she notes.
She began working at Caron in 2020. Her previous experience includes working with first responders in other treatment programs, as a primary therapist, counselor, and case specialist. She has additional counseling experience in a residential treatment program and an outpatient program.
April enjoys working with first responders because, “as a group they often put themselves aside for others. To see them finally understand the importance of taking care of themselves and learning to be happy is rewarding.”
April has a master’s degree in clinical counseling from Rosemont College and a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in criminal justice from Widener University.
