April Bailye

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello! My name is April Bailye and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I received my Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Bradley University and went on to obtain my Master's Degree in Social Work Mental Health at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I am originally from Illinois, but have lived in Memphis, TN for the last ten years and just moved to the Atlanta area a couple months ago. I've been providing therapy to individuals and couples for over ten years. I got my start working with the severely mentally ill in hospitals, and have spent the last 8 years working in an outpatient setting. I specialize in treating couples (Certificate of Professional Recognition on Gottman 10 Core Principles of Effective Couples Therapy), people struggling with depression, anxiety, stress related to relationships and/or work, grief and loss, and trauma. I truly love to listen to peoples' stories and to help them get to a better place, whatever that may mean for them. Although I want what is best for my clients, it is also important that they feel comfortable in treatment. This means therapy/counseling sessions will move at your pace, and you will pick the goals you want to work on. I believe it's also important to be flexible, as no two people are the same. Therefore, I have multiple interventions and therapeutic frameworks that I use (Gottman, CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Family Systems Theory, REBT, etc). As we get to know each other, we will figure out what interventions work best for you, specifically. There is nothing we can't talk about and nothing I can't help you with! So, let's get started!
