Arrowhead Psychological Clinic (APC) is pleased to have you visiting our site. Arrowhead Psychological has been providing counseling and therapy in Duluth, Minnesota, since 1980.

APC is proud to be known as one of the most innovative counseling centers in Minnesota. Husband and wife, Walt and Dee Plude helped develop a state-of-the-art couples counseling program by infusing their 40 years of marriage and psychological training into a comprehensive approach to relationship problems. While Walt and Dee have retired, Dr. Dave Plude, LP, and Shelley Plude, MSW, LICSW, continue to specialize in marital and family therapy here at Arrowhead Psychological Clinic, P.A. Visit our Couples Counseling Center for more information.

Our Attention Deficit Disorder Clinic is founded upon the most recent research within the field. Dr. David Plude, LP, the program's director, has researched and published scientific research on attention deficit hyperactivity disorders. Dr. Plude provides both counseling and testing for ADHD.

Our preschooler, child, and adolescent counseling services also serve families who would like to reduce resistance, increase cooperation, increase motivation, and maintain control within the family. Dr. Kelsey Berg is one of the region's few providers with specialized training for 3 to 5-year-old children. Visit our Preschool/Child/Adolescent Counseling page for more information. APC has 2 clinicians who are currently providing services at Duluth East High School, and next year, will also be providing services at Ordean East Middle School. This can be of great assistance if parents find it hard to drive their children to weekly appointments.

Other innovative services offered by Arrowhead Psychological Clinic includes telephone consultations, our Children and Adolescent Counseling Program, and research and statistics regarding counseling and therapy for anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.

Anger management groups are available for men, women, and adolescents. Most group services, including court-ordered evaluations/group therapy, are covered by insurance. Contact us regarding group times and availability.

If you or someone you care about needs help with personal problems, we are here for you...and for them. For over 20 years we have been providing counseling and therapy to people of all ages to overcome their problems with confidential consultation in a supportive, caring environment.
