I, April Preston, am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington DC area who earned my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary's University in Minneapolis, MN. I specialize in systems and family dynamics and have a strong love for community and cultural matters. My belief is that clients are experts in their own lives and it is my responsibility as a therapist to follow my clients' pace on their journey toward wellness. My goals are to assist clients in Reflecting upon life choices and experiences that have caused emotional wounds, supporting clients in Releasing pain associated with emotional scars, and providing a safe space for Restoration. Therefore, I founded Kovu (i.e., pronounced ko-voo and means 'scar' in Swahili) Healing as a place for scars to heal.
