Hello. I am a psychotherapist in South Florida specializing in Stress, Trauma, Anxiety, and Depression. I help you remember that, despite difficult ordeals, it is possible to move forward. And talking helps. My top work entails...

"Positive Mental Health, Understanding Ourselves" - I work closely with clients going through Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma. Together we discuss the memories and feelings that you're struggling with and figure out healthy ways to talk and cope. Plus, lots of conversation on creating healthy habits, seeing a doctor, when medication is necessary, and how to sustain peace, calm, and balance inside and out.

"Situational Depression and Anxiety" - 2020 and the past year has put all of us in different places and situations than expected. This is where you share with me what is going on in your life triggering difficulty in coping with current circumstances. I do mental health assessments, and together we discuss what you're going through, how to express your feelings, and how to lift your mood and focus on thoughts, actions, and behaviors despite how life unfolds. You will learn resilience... essentially how to respond versus react and follow your life values and make decisions accordingly.

"Couples Therapy for One" - I am a big proponent to healing relationships if that is a part of your goals. I work with *individuals* as they work to better their relationships or move through relationship conflict, breakup, or even divorce. Some call it

"Professional Growth/Entrepreneur Mental Health" - I work with those struggling through Stress and Burnout. Particularly to those who are entrepreneurs, business owners, and high achieving professionals facing unique challenges of that lifestyle. Also, this is ideal for those in the helping and caregiving professions such as nurses, therapists, counselors, and first responders.

"Health Focused" - Also, I am a medical family therapist. I can talk with you about your chronic pain and/or illness struggles along with medical facets to your diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

Overall, I talk with you about whatever matters most to you. I support those who are ready for change.

*MORE ABOUT ME:* I believe mindfulness and self-care are powerful and freeing. I practice solution focused, person-centered, positive psychology everyday. I am enthralled with the stars (of the sky), live for music and travel, and frequently am found taking walks in the South Florida sunshine. In the meantime, I love working with my clients, and supporting them through growth. How can I help you?

Dr. Coleman has been excellent for my growth over the passed few months. She makes sure to communicate expectations, checks in at the beginning of every session to see how you are feeling, and asks if you have anything pressing that YOU would like to discuss before diving into what she has on the agenda. Her communication is exceptional and she has been is a fierce ally in getting me where I want to be mentally. I would recommend Dr. Coleman to anyone and trust her 100% in my mental growth.

Aprile is an excellent counselor that really helps me out with my issues.

Written on Nov 28, 2020 after therapy with Aprile for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

I had my last session with Ms. Aprile today, and it was incredibly heartwarming. I remember when I first started our conversations. I was so afraid to open up to anyone, and I kept blaming myself for the ways the people around me reacted towards me. I was in so much pain and had so much confusion about my identity. Ms. Aprile gave me the tools and the wisdom to ground myself in who I really am. She helped me change my neurolinguistic practices and my self talk. She helped me release the shame I felt in my experience. With her help, I was able to see the relationships I needed to step away from and to become grounded in myself.

Since we have started working together I have found the courage to embrace who I am and come out to the people closest to me. I have started the journey towards self love and awareness, and even have found my life’s path as an artist and activist. I’m in the process of starting a non-profit that will provide the safe space Ms. Aprile provided for me for other LGBTQ+ youth.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without Ms. Aprile’s help, and I’m so thankful to have worked alongside her. My life is different thanks to her heart and help, and I’d recommend her to anyone.

I highly recommend Aprile Andelle who helped me overcome my personal struggles in just 8 months. After feeling so much better, we were able to measure the improvement if 20-30% in different key topics. I believe I have learned how to manage emotions better and hope she can continue to do the same for others.
