Ready for a healthier you?

Welcome to Agape Counseling Associates! We look forward to working with you!

For sixteen years, Agape Counseling Associates has been a leading provider of Clinical Christian Counseling, not only to the Wilmington area but to the South Eastern Carolina Coast. We have two offices, one in Wilmington and one  in Jacksonville North Carolina. You will find our expertise broad and our staff fully licensed and trained, ready to help by providing therapy for Adults and Individuals, Marriage and Family, Teens and Children, those who struggle with Addictions, as well as offering specific therapy for Pastors, their church leadership and other professionals. Read more about our services by taking the next step to see more specifically how we can help you. 

Let’s start a conversation about you and your journey.

We know that life happens and circumstances shape all of us, our behaviors, our emotions, our being. Sometimes we get derailed. At Agape, we believe that one of our greatest weaknesses lie in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try, even if its just one more time.

What Does Agape Mean?

So, what’s in a name? Agape is a Greek word meaning unconditional love. This is the foundation that we as Clinical Christian Counselors begin with you. Unconditional means that you and your issues are safe here. While we are rooted by our faith, all are welcome, those without a particular faith and those who share ours.
