The Counseling Hub provides exceptional outpatient individual counseling and couples therapy or marriage counseling for adult individuals and those in relationships in Columbia, Mo.

Our goal is to increase meaning and calm in our clients's lives through fostering intimate connections with others, including partners, friends, and family.

If you've experienced the pangs of disconnection and misunderstanding, then you understand why we place such an emphasis on meaningful connection.

If you've felt isolated, alone, and wary of others because of being hurt in the past, then you understand why we focus on creating healing relationships and finding meaning from hard times.

If you've felt bullied and challenged by others and don't know how to speak up for yourself, then you understand why we specialize in your relationship with yourself (through confidence and boundaries, healing from anxiety, and growing self-esteem). 

In a nutshell, you're here because you don't feel good. Something is off.
