April Kilduff MA, LCPC, LPCC, LMHC
Therapist, Consultant, Trainer
I’m currently part of the NOCD network (www.treatmyocd.com), offering tele therapy outpatient services for OCD. My goal is to remain highly focused on OCD treatment using the evidence-based practices of CBT, ERP & ACT. Thanks to my experience at Amita/Alexian & Rogers, I have experience working with all types of OCD – contamination, checking, counting & perfectionism to name a few common ones as well as lesser-known “Pure-O” types – violent/sexual/harm thoughts (including HOCD, POCD & ROCD) & Scrupulosity. We can work together to create an exposure program that’s paced right just for you.
I hyper-specialize in treating OCD among autistic adults (no kids)
Treating OCD & Anxiety disorders has been my speciality for a decade now, with 8 years at the intensive outpatient programs of Amita/Alexian Brothers & Rogers Behavioral Health. Under the supervision of two IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board members, I supported hundreds of people & their families as they learned to challenge & manage OCD/Anxiety using CBT, ERP & ACT. Additionally, I highly enjoy & often work with adults who also identify as autistic. My training is ongoing as there will always be more to learn from books & conferences as well as my colleagues & clients.
I was late diagnosed with autism in July of 2022 & am enjoying leaning into that more as I learn about myself & other autistics, including clients. I also identify as a Demigirl and am a kink/ethical non-monogamy-informed therapist as well.
I am immersed in the communities of autistics, LBGTQIA+ & kink/ethical non-monogamy. This has always been the best form or learning for me. And I continue to seek out education opportunities around all of the above.
