Every Soul Free & Thriving

EMERGE Counseling Services strives to meet mental health needs through counseling, education, research and fundraising events. In addition, we have a rental space available to be used for professional development training events and meetings within the Akron, OH area.

Discover Wholeness

At Emerge we strive to counsel people towards wholeness and healing. We believe that God’s intention is that we do more than survive – He desires for us to thrive in life. Psalm 23 says, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want…” There is a fulness and freedom in life intended for each of us. The journey towards freedom is one we love to see people experience.

EMERGE seeks to provide counseling services in as many ways as possible to best meet the needs of those we serve. We strive to make you feel at home during your important journey to health, hope, and healing.

Office Appointments
If you are able to visit us at one of our locations, we offer in-person office visits with a licensed professional clinician or intern.

Short Term Services
We recognize that EMERGE offices may not be local to all who wish to utilize our services. For this reason we have made Short Term Services available. For this service, those who live out of town can come to any of our locations to receive accelerated counseling services over the course of 3–4 days.

Online Counseling
For those that live in the state of Ohio, but are not local to one of our offices, we have online counseling available.

STEP Process
Psychological testing will be done in order to best assist the clinician to establish a baseline in which to work from. This helps our counselors to quickly define the areas of personal strengths and growth areas. EMERGE calls this specialized service Short Team Evaluation and Psychotherapy (STEP).

Discounted rates have been established with local hotels. Please contact our Client Registration Specialists at 800-621-5207 to be emailed a list of suggested hotels to utilize during your stay.
