    About April O'Neill, LCSW

    I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker that is licensed in Wyoming and Utah. I have worked in a variety of settings including research work at the University of Utah, halfway houses, treatment and resource centers, prisons and private practice settings. I have a passion for thinking outside of the box and tackling the most difficult situations.

    I pride myself in being a down-to-earth, compassionate therapist while not relying on kitschy phrases and overused platitudes to help you feel better. It seems unhelpful to tell someone with a terminal illness, “Everything happens for a reason,” or, “Just think about how much worse other people have it.” So why tell those things to someone struggling with mental and emotional challenges? Whether physical, emotional or otherwise, all problems are real and deserve real-world solutions.

    In my spare time, I enjoy going to concerts, cooking, hiking and spending time with my husband and my German Shepherd, Tedder.

    My Education & Experience

    I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology from Utah Valley University and a Master’s in Social Work with an emphasis in Forensic Social Work from the University of Utah.

    More recently, I have been doing private practice work, again, primarily online. In the private practice setting, I enjoy working with adults and adolescents in a variety of situations and life challenges. Whether those challenges are learning how to deal with the emotions of being a new parent, coping with the loss of a relationship, or struggling with the anxious feelings self-doubt brings, I look forward to working with you.

    I have worked in a variety of settings such as in criminal justice and social work research as a research analyst. Through this work, I enjoyed participating in macro-level work on various community projects. These included collaborations with local law enforcement, program evaluations for treatment providers, a randomized control trial in partnership with New York University looking for alternative treatment options for domestic violence offenders, among others.

    I have spent significant time doing therapy work with substance use and sexual offenders in the community, halfway houses and prison settings. I have a great passion for evoking change and finding potential, even in the darkest places.
