April Franklin, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

April is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). She holds a dual Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology from Hunter College, New York, and earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from Delaware State University, graduating with honors. Additionally, April has more than a decade of experience serving clients who have presented a variety of mental and behavioral health problems.

April recognizes that for many people, the decision to seek professional help, to meet with someone who can help address their mental health challenges is a huge step. To help make this step easier, April offers clients a safe therapeutic space that provides them with the support they need in the beginning of and throughout their therapeutic journey. Within that space, April utilizes a client-centered approach and works in partnership with her clients to help them identify their strengths and needs to empower them to meet their challenges and achieve their objectives. She also understands the importance of identifying and addressing aspects of an individual’s life that can impact a client’s well-being, such as a client’s level of physical health, the availability of support systems (family, friends), the work or school environment, and the role of faith/spirituality in a client’s life.

April is deeply committed to working with marginalized clients, clients whose voices often go unheard. She advocates on behalf of her clients, coaches them in the ways of empowerment, and seeks to provide them with the knowledge and resources they need to overcome their challenges.

Jerry Lindquist, Psychologist

Philosophy of Care

Jerry Lindquist is a Licensed Psychologist who specializes in treating people on the autism spectrum, especially those with Asperger’s disorder. Neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy with special needs children and their families are additional areas of emphasis. Dr. Lindquist has 32 years of experience in the mental health field. Part of his time now is devoted to evaluating a variety of disorders, which affect learning, behavior and emotional function, both as a psychologist and a neuropsychologist. Another of Dr. Lindquist’s specialties involves psychotherapeutic interventions with a wide range of psychological, emotional, or other adjustment difficulties experienced by children, adolescents, adults, and families. Dr. Lindquist is also experienced in marital, family, and individual psychotherapy.

Dr. Lindquist completed his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Psychology at Alliant International University. As an elder, he’s had an array of experience that has strengthened his sense of empathy and understanding of a number of issues, including adoption and step-family issues, grief and caregiving concerns, addictions, divorce, parenting issues, stress management, school issues, as well as other areas of concern. He has spent a good deal of time working with families with children who have special needs. Children who have autism, for example, can benefit from parents who work at understanding the unique parenting requirements for these kids. Dr. Lindquist can help with that. He also specializes in psychological testing - testing that can provide a profile of cognitive and emotional strengths and challenges that may point to where specific kinds of treatment and education might be best targeted.

Dr. Lindquist has often thought that psychotherapy involves making the unconscious conscious. Accordingly, a focus on insight-oriented treatment is his emphasis. Assisting people to develop understanding of and connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors allows the possibility of change to occur. It is extremely gratifying to see a client allow a new awareness to emerge, creating an opportunity that was not there before. This can happen with adults, adolescents, and even kids. With younger children, the process may be a bit different, with the creation of an environment where they can work out their thoughts and feelings through the medium of play, rather than act out in a maladaptive manner. Dr. Lindquist’s knowledge of sensory processing allows the provision of movement and sensory experiences that can have an organizing effect on behavior. Jerry would like to help YOU if he can.

Kush Desai, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

“A connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” - Brene Brown

Kush approaches his position as a counselor and his relationship with his clients with the utmost respect and honor. He understands that it’s not easy to reach out when you are in the midst of pain, and it can be even harder to open up. That is why Kush is passionate about creating a safe space where opening up, healing, and growing is invited.

It is okay if you have trepidation or doubts surrounding the counseling process, and it doesn’t matter if you want to start slow. Kush meets his clients where they are at and helps them get to where they want to be. Kush believes it’s an honor to support patients in their journey and follows a companionship approach to his work

When he’s not in the counseling room, Kush enjoys going on hikes, watching movies, and spending time with his family.

Kush has experience working with clients anywhere from grief work to homelessness. His wide range of experience makes him an expert at understanding where people are coming from even if he hasn’t lived it himself. He always strives to connect with the whole person. You are much more than just a problem to be solved, and you deserve a counselor who sees all of you.

Kush received his Master of Social Work in 2019 from the University of Denver, with a concentration in Aging Services and Policy. During his Master program, Kush worked in the Bereavement Services department at Suncrest Hospice. Most recently, Kush provided grief support in his role as a Hospice Social Worker at Pikes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care.

In addition to his work as a grief and bereavement counselor, he has experience working with children in child welfare, survivors of domestic violence, older adults in nursing communities, and individuals experiencing homelessness.

In his counseling practice, he frequently employs CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy- addressing thoughts and emotions), ACT, (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy- working with mindfulness and acceptance strategies) and SFBT (Solution-Focused Brief Therapy- goal directed and collaborative).
