Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is Dustin.
I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having, I will do my best to help you resolve it.

lets start with a command S repair, heres how to carry out the repair. http://osxdaily.com/2013/08/07/how-to-repair-a-mac-disk-with-fsck-from-single-user-mode/

Once you have ran the fsck -fy command 2-3 times.. restart your mac.. Will it make it ast the apple screen now?

If n ot, shut down.. Then hold down the left shift key when you start the mac, this will attempt a safe mode start. Let me know if it can start in safe mode.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a 5 star rating clicked and submitted when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.
