Whether it is a constant, incessant worry that occupies your mind or a paralyzing fear that prevents you from engaging in important relationships or activities, Apollo Counseling is here to help support you through the process of challenging those unhelpful thoughts and feelings and begin to identify strategies to manage them in your day-to-day life.

Apollo Counseling is here to support couples in all stages of your relationship to work towards improving communication, understanding one another, resolving conflict effectively, and strengthening the bond you share.

Depression is more than just sadness. It is a painful, burdensome experience that permeates into your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships. If you have found yourself feeling fatigued or irritable, facing difficulty making decisions or getting motivated, avoiding activities you once loved, or feeling hopeless, it is likely that you are experiencing depression. By working with a professional counselor at Apollo Counseling, there is hope to challenge the persistent negative thoughts and feelings and get support to find your joy once again.
Apollo recognizes the unique and extreme challenges you face as a professional in medical services. Physicians, nurses, therapists, and other health professionals are tasked with the immense burden of caring for others while managing demanding schedules, investing in home and family life, and navigating the convoluted system in which we are expected to perform flawlessly. Without support, it is no wonder that you find yourself in survival mode, feeling cynical, or ineffective where you once found joy, adventure, and challenge. Burnout has been described as “an erosion of the soul caused by a deterioration of one's values, dignity, spirit, and will”. Apollo Counseling is here to help you restore your sense of balance, efficacy, and compassion.
