Empower Counseling, Counseling services in Evans, Ga and Boise, ID

Hello! I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing services in Idaho and Georgia. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and nurturing space that promotes insight, self-acceptance, new perspectives, and self empowerment. I feel it is a privilege to provide therapy centered around the whole-person. Life is full of struggles that arise unexpectedly and it can be intense. Seeking professional support can feel intimidating and overwhelming! My priority is to supportively listen and assure you are not alone! Together we will explore, process, and understand the difficult feelings and experiences you are struggling with. 



Meet April Thorndyke, LCSW and owner of Empower Counseling PLLC.

Hi! I’m glad you are taking the time to love yourself and seek support. Life happens to the best of us, and it can be very overwhelming. Feeling stuck in certain aspects of our lives, maybe it's relationships, career, or just choices we’ve made that are not leading us in the direction we want to go. I believe through understanding and self-awareness, we can move towards becoming our true selves, navigating through the challenges to experience life more fully. As awareness of our fears, perception, desires, and strengths increase, we can make beautiful life changes!  


Are you ready for change in your life?  Do you want deeper and more fulfilling connection with yourself and others? 


I look forward to coming alongside you, with unconditional acceptance and compassion, encouraging you to find healing. 

It is possible!

Meet the team! With our team of seasoned counselors, we ensure empathetic and non-judgmental support for our clients. Our comprehensive services range from individual counseling to couples and family therapy, and even child and teen counseling.



I am a Licensed Master Social Worker who strives to view my client's through a systems lens in the therapeutic process, recognizing the power of families as a cohesive unit with inherent strengths to be nurtured and harnessed. I work to empower children, adolescents, adults and families to explore their innate abilities and navigate challenges with resilience, fostering growth and harmony.

I believe each of us comes with a unique perspective and background, and you can expect a holistic and person-centered approach. Each therapy journey will be uniquely tailored to suit individual needs, considering the diversity and complexity of each family's background and experiences. I look forward to creating a therapeutic alliance built on trust and collaboration, providing the foundation for lasting and transformative change.

Whether you are seeking support for your child, navigating family dynamics, or seeking individual healing, I hope to accompany you on your path towards growth, resilience, and a more fulfilling life. Together, we can explore your strengths, embrace your experiences, and work towards building a brighter future for you and your family.

We'll work together, drawing from my years of experience, where empathy and active listening are the cornerstones of our sessions.
