The ASPIRE Clinic is a unique resource that provides holistic counseling and education services to UGA and the Athens community.

At the ASPIRE Clinic, we believe that problems don’t exist in isolation. When there is a struggle in one area of our lives, other things are likely impacted too. We offer an array of services that include individual, couple, and family therapy, financial counseling and education, home environment and design, nutrition counseling and education, and also legal problem solving. All of our collaborative services can help you feel a greater sense of wholeness and happiness. donate now

-Important Note regarding changes to ASPIRE Clinic Parking & Lot S10 Access:

Please note that reserved parking spaces for the ASPIRE Clinic have been relocated. Current clients should check with interns in the front office to be sure that they are parked correctly.

Construction near Carlton Street running in front of the Stegeman Coliseum may cause disruption at one of the two lot S10 parking entrances near the greenhouses, and may become temporarily inaccessible. We recommend that clients use the S10 lot entrance on Sanford Drive until construction is finished. Green client parking spaces are available and will not be impacted by the construction.

Please see the maps on our "contact us" page for more information.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the ASPIRE Clinic at 706.542.4486 or at aspire@uga.edu
