Aprell Taylor, LPC
Counselor, Wellness Coach and Educator
"Ujima" is a Swahili word that means Collective Work and Responsibility. I see my practice as a way to build and maintain my community. I pledge to make my brothers' and sisters' problems my own as we solve them together. With that in mind, I have built a practice that is sensitive to the needs in my community.
My passion lies in helping individuals accept themselves with love and compassion and to shift the way they look at the world. I enjoy working with couples- both those considering marriage and those who have been married for years- helping them find their way past the gridlock and on to relationships filled with friendship, admiration and loving communication. I believe that healthy individuals make healthy couples and the family is the cornerstone of healthy communities.
I began my career as an educator, teaching elementary school in Atlanta. As I learned more about myself and the way I interacted with the world around me, I realized that my gifts and talents are better suited for counseling. I have been a school counselor for 20 years and it has been this experience working with young people and their families that led me to private practice. The years of training and professional experience coupled with my own journey through life and loss have prepared me to do this important work and led me to wellness coaching. As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend I connect with my clients through shared experiences and support them as they redefine their own journeys.
I am honored and humbled for the chance to make a difference in your life.
