About One Day at a Time Counseling
One Day at a Time Counseling is a family owned counseling center that provides mental health counseling and other services. Dr. Angie Cordova and Mrs. April Cordova-Williams are a mother and daughter team who are dedicated to provide each family system individualized care.
Dr. Angie Cordova started the private practice in 2004 while also holding a position as a police officer. She retired as a police officer and continued with her passion as a therapist full time. Once the private practice started to thrive she enlisted the help of her daughter, April Cordova-Williams, to assist with office managerial functions.
At the time, April was attending to her undergraduate studies and learning a vast amount of business protocol and becoming more passionate about the mental health field. At the end of 2014, April received her Master's Degree in Counseling and was now able to accept clients and provide mental health services.
At the beginning of 2015 we started a new adventure in co-ownership and together we divide and conquer when beneficial and necessary for the client and their family.

I have extensive experience and academic knowledge working in the trauma/crisis field and I provide those kinds of services to individuals, businesses and first responder agencies. Although I no longer work in law enforcement, I do continue to work with police officers, firefighters, all first responders and their families. I work with an array of populations including but limited to: addiction, pre-marital and marital, suicide, crisis, victims of crime, family system challengs, and diagnostic work. In May of 2015 I received my doctorate degree in psychology, which has allowed me to broaden the practice by including more assessments and diagnostic abilites. I enjoy the work that I do and I like to help people become mentally healthy. I am a strong adovcate for providing knowledge about mental health and diagnostic concerns. I feel part of the counseling process is first to know what is going on with yourself and then to come up with a plan collaboratively in determining the best treatment goal(s).
I graduated from Regis University in 2014 with my Master's Degree in Counseling. I had the opportunity to work that entire 2014 year at Denver Children's Advocacy Center. This allowed me to broaden my experience and knowledge in providing counseling services for children and adolescents who have been victims of crime and their non-offending family memebers. This has been a specialty of mine and I continue working with that marginalized population. My training at Regis was specifically geared toward individual counseling and addressing various challenges that may occur throughout life. Thus, majority of my clientele is seen on an individual basis versus family therpay. In 2021 I received certification to work with Perinatal Mental Health and plan to increase working with that population in the new year. I utilize a person centered approach in order to meet my client(s) where they are in life and to collaborate with my clients throughout the therapeutic process in order to provide the most beneficial outcome. I strive to guide my clients in the most benefical and productive way throughout the therapy journey and to remind myself and them that they are the oes that hold the key to their success and together we will try to find that success.
