What is counseling?


Counseling is a collaborative relationship between you and a professional who is trained to help you identify goals and develop potential solutions to reduce emotional pain, improve relationships, strengthen interpersonal skills, address mental health concerns, and support you in the challenging work of changing.


Is counseling right for me?

Making the initial decision to seek professional support is one of the greatest hurdles you face when dealing with emotional or relational pain. Counseling is the perfect environment to receive support when you need it most. This may be your first time thinking about counseling, or you may have been before and are looking for something different. Due to the highly relational aspect of counseling, finding the right fit with your counselor is important. You can feel confident that all of our professional counselors will provide safe, empathetic, and confidential care for you. Please contact us at Apollo Counseling to see how we can provide the support you need.

Additionally, limiting third party involvement improves confidentiality and privacy for your care. Check out the Get Started page for more information.
