April Vass RSW MSW
April founded OCD Wellness, a Canadian Clinic that provides evidence-based treatment to people living with OCD and related disorders. OCD Wellness was born out of a passion to raise awareness and debunk stereotypes surrounding OCD.
April understands the challenges of seeking treatment for OCD and wanted to create a safe space to access gold-standard treatment for OCD and OC related disorders. Authenticity, integrity, and teamwork are values that are important to April and are reflected in all interactions.
April provides Exposures and Response Prevention, Habit Reversal training for BFRB’s, Cognitive Behavoural Therapy for Tics, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
April is a certified ERP clinician through The Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety at the University of Pennsylvania.
April accesses consultation to allow for continued growth and learning, and participates in on-going learning through available webinars throughout the OCD professional community.
April makes the IOCDF annual virtual conference a priority, keeping her knowledge fresh and ensuring she is providing evidence-based treatment.
April strives to be a clinician who is culturally sensitive and competent. April aims to foster an equitable and inclusive environment, welcoming clients of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientation, ages, religions, and abilities.
