est. 2015

POLARIS was founded by two friends from grad school who bonded over wit, wisdom, and their mutual respect towards a good Power Point. With over 20 years of field experience our owners, Dr. Daryl (Cioffi) Appleton and Jennifer Weaver-Breitenbecher began Polaris Counseling & Consulting, LLC after seeing the need for 360 degree individualized care in an environment of security, luxury and comfort. 

 

Nationally known as experts in the field of mental health, Daryl and Jenn have appeared in local and international news outlets, as guests on radio and professional panels throughout the country, and have published books, and papers in the academic circuit. The handpicked POLARIS clinical team specializes in a range of psychological needs and treatments with an intense focus on goals and directives toward overall well-being and self-actualization.
