(770) 218-9005
Fountain Gate is a non-profit center offering professional counseling on a sliding fee scale based on your income and family size. We desire that every person be able to afford the help they need. Our community of therapists works with individuals (adults, adolescents, and children), couples, and families who are seeking personal and relational wholeness. Our goal is to help people gain greater perspective on their problems and make helpful life changes through honest interaction with someone who will listen well and care deeply.
Fountain Gate therapists provide a safe place for you to explore and process issues that may seem overwhelming, such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, anger, relationship problems, family challenges, career transitions, or spiritual concerns. We enjoy working with men, women, and children in all stages of life.
I am joined in our practice by Margaret Ast, Karen Barnes, Gabrielle Burholt, Kimberly Eldridge, Joyce Geddie, Sharon Lawrence, Lyresa McGriff, DeVon Mills, Jessica Richards, Craig Torell, Elisa Torell, and Tiffany Tufford. Please visit for more information.
