Welcome!

You have just found one of Central Wisconsin’s most unique counseling resources for you and your family.  After more than a decade of gaining valuable professional experience elsewhere, Steven L Johnson opened Advocate Psychotherapy Services LLC in order to pursue a broader way to help people.  This private agency is centered around providing timely and effective psychotherapy to the men, women, teens, couples, and families throughout Wood and Portage counties – and beyond.  No matter where you live in Wisconsin, there is an opportunity for getting help from APS.  Centrally located offices help with driving in for treatment from other areas, technology and online resources can help connect Steve to people who cannot or desire not to travel, and Steve can even travel to other communities to offer helpful and engaging seminars for the public good.

The mission of Advocate Psychotherapy Services is grounded in the belief that each person is unique in their skills and abilities, valuable because of who he or she is in personal character, and that there is always hope for needed changes.  Support systems may be weak during a crisis or ongoing difficulty, but with the help of a counselor, healthy patterns, effective ideas, and healing can all be acheived.

Take your time evaluating the services and resources available via this website, and please do not hesiate to contact Steve through email, phone, or his social media icons listed in the upper right of this page.  Any of your questions can be answered fairly quickly, too, by calling 800-681-2374.

Thank you and hope to see you soon!
