Angela Prior

LCSW-S, E-RYT, CIEC

Founder of AP Counseling + Yoga

We try so hard to not feel something that is unpleasant or overwhelming and the next thing we know we have created an entirely new set of feelings and usually unhelpful experiences.

The paradigm is when we embrace those feelings we were trying to not feel in the first place is when we actually can begin to move through them and let go. 

Therapy is that vehicle that we can use to get there: to that place where we can feel our feelings, move through them, and keep living that life we desire.

The Daydreamer

I could get lost in my head and think the day away dreaming about all the places to go and things to do. During our work together, you'll probably hear me say "dream with me for a moment" more than once because getting into the headspace of envisioning the future is a crucial part of self-discovery.

I feel deeply, which can make those feelings a little on the tricky side and yoga and meditation have been an integral part of keeping me grounded long enough to sit, be present, and feel.

We'd be a good fit if...

You are ready to dig deep and face all the avoidance in your life and feel those damn feels so you can embody your life without disordered eating, over working, or panic attacks.

You want to experience the magic of yoga and meditation to help you with just "being."

You desire a life with boundaries around work so you can continue to explore your passions.

You believe in a life well-lived and know that living to work is not the best definition of that. 

Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-s)

How I became a social worker some would say was me answering a calling, others would say was on impulse, and I would say was pure intuition. Despite declaring an education major, during freshmen orientation when we were on the way to the education building we passed the social work department. I had an immediate feeling this was where I was supposed to be. I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) from The Ohio State University in 2010 and my BA in Social Work from The University of Findlay in 2009. 

 Yoga became part of the practice because I firmly believe in the benefits of somatic healing by connecting both the body and the mind. My vision was to bring the healing benefits of yoga and therapy together in one place that was supportive of mental health. I completed my 200 hr certification in yoga and I am registered with the Yoga Alliance.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker...

Often, the tendency is to avoid those painful moments of falling, to just keep doing what you were doing before. The therapist is there to help you get back up and approach the hard things again and again until they are the new norm. 

You do the hard work of moving forward, taking steps, sometimes falling, then getting back up again.

Therapy is a relationship between equals. You come with your own rich history of experiences, as does the therapist. We can both use these experiences to connect with each other and with the deeper, more hidden parts of ourselves.

The therapist is there to help guide you on the journey, encouraging and challenging you along the way.

Intuitive + Creative

Creative processes endlessly fascinate me. I love knowing how things (almost anything!) are made. This is probably because I prefer the softer and gentler side of life and try to live a little bit on the slow side.

As an Enneagram Four, I see the beauty in things and am quick to point it out. My environment is important to me and if it doesn’t feel right, I don’t feel right. I lean hard into the feel of something and into nostalgia.
I feel deeply, which can make those feelings a little on the tricky side and yoga and meditation have been an integral part of keeping me grounded long enough to sit, be present, and feel.

We'd be a good fit if...

You are ready to do some work to change the way you think about yourself and treat yourself.

You prefer texting to calls/emails.

You are open to trying some new things and being (mostly gently) challenged. 

You desire more gratitude and acceptance in your life, or at the very least, neutrality.

You want to do all of that with a sense of humor and some serious moments sprinkled in between.

Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)

Therapy is serious work, but it can be fun. I promise I don't bite, but I also won't bullshit you and all I ask for is the same. I want you to know that I believe in you and that you can do this, whatever “this” is. My hope is that you will avoid less and approach more. This looks like connection to yourself first and foremost.

I received my Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology and my Master’s of Science in Counseling from SMU.

Joining the AP Counseling + Yoga team was a dream because I get to blend mind, body, and spirit- all of which we must address if we want true healing. I am well known for asking “where do you feel that in your body?” and you'll likely be asked to reflect on how your body holds onto your feelings.

Licensed Professional Counselor...

If something isn’t serving you, let’s explore ways to create space for what will bring you fulfillment. In therapy, the therapist serves as a mirror to reflect the unknown parts within yourself. 

Give yourself Permission

Therapy is an invitation and exploration of your inner world. It’s venturing through the familiar and forgotten stories of your life that have made you who you are today. Maybe you seek healing and understanding for yourself, maybe it’s to improve your relationship; regardless of what’s brought you to therapy, you can expect collaboration, authenticity, and empathy.

  You’re feeling disconnected or unsatisfied with yourself

You have a desire to increase the trust and connection with your partner

You want to rejuvenate your sexual experiences

 You want therapy to feel like writing in a journal that actually talks back

You’re ready to stop feeling inadequate and embrace all aspects of yourself



We'd be a good fit if...

Creativity, self-exploration, and self-expression have been passions for as long as I can remember. Feeling all the feels so deeply can be overwhelming, movement and creative outlets are essential for me to feel grounded and connected. Exploring and reinventing your identity is a creative act within itself; it also illustrates why I became a therapist.

I have started pursing my yoga teacher training as you can not entirely connect with yourself if you are only connecting to your thoughts.  Being able to be in your body and somatically attune is where true connection comes from.

My Movement Philosophy 

I am an artist and inclusive therapeutic yoga teacher. I spend my days exploring how creativity can work for us. I does this through my artwork and exploring the body and movement through curiosity.

I am fascinated with functional movement and finding ways to integrate movement for all levels mobility. My philosophy is anyone can create a sustainable-for-life movement practice by cultivating clear self-seeing followed by recognizing in action our needs which are shifting, dynamic, and interesting.

We'd Be a good Fit if...

You already have a therapist and looking to add on a somatic and experiential component to your work

You are wanting to explore trauma informed movement

You want to cultivate a sustainable movement practice free from diet culture

 You are looking to experience movement with judgement

You’re curious about embodiement
