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.
