To contact the office or to schedule an appointment*, call (706) 705-7005 and follow the voice prompts for the counselor you would like to speak with.
When the therapist is out of the office or in session, you will reach a confidential voice messaging service. Therefore, if you reach the therapist’s voice mail, please know that your call is very important. Calls are generally returned within 24-48 hours of the next business day. Please simply leave your name and number with a brief message that you would like to schedule or re-schedule an appointment, and your call will be returned in as timely a fashion as possible.
Grace Counseling of Athens is not an emergency receiving facility, and office hours are by appointment. If you are in a mental health crisis or life-threatening emergency/situation, do not leave a message or wait for a call back. Instead, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency treatment facility.
