Welcome to Access Counseling Group:
A Charlotte Counseling Service
ACG | Individual, Family, and Marriage Counseling
Access Counseling Group (ACG) provides individual counseling, couples counseling, pre-marital counseling, Christian counseling, relationship counseling, marriage counseling and family counseling in a nonjudgmental, compassionate, safe and nurturing environment.
Access Counseling Group is located in the greater Charlotte area, and serves Ballantyne, Fort Mill, Rock Hill and surrounding areas.
Our professional counselors take a “whole-person” approach to therapy. We see the individual NOT as a “problem” but as a unique person made up of a body, soul (mind, will and emotions) and spirit. The counselors at Access Counseling Group have clinical expertise in a wide range of treatment areas that affect personal, professional, relational and spiritual health. They are highly qualified and have pursued extensive training in therapies like Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy (EMDR). Additionally, our counselors are uniquely trained to help you integrate your faith into your therapy. The counselors at Access Counseling Group are committed to sound clinical and Biblical approach to therapy. However, we welcome all those who seek counseling regardless of religious background.
ACG therapists want to help. Earning your trust and listening carefully creates the best environment for treating any issue and assures you of the best possible outcome in therapy. Your confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. We take every step possible to ensure our clients’ right to privacy. As a small, personal practice, each client gets the care and privacy they deserve.
We find it a privilege to walk with those who are hurting or want to grow personally, spiritually or relationally. At times, we all need help sorting out life’s challenges and struggles. Feelings of anger, sadness, grief, fear, etc. are normal in response to life’s difficulties. Sometimes these feelings can be overwhelming and can prevent us from living life. You don’t have to face it alone. Counseling can provide relief and help you get back on track. Allow us to join you on life’s journey.
Whatever you may be facing today that keeps you from fully enjoying life, coming in for an assessment will either rule out any problems or help pinpoint what needs to be addressed.
Access Counseling Group is a full service center that treats you as an individual and supports your effort in seeking professional help. We strive to be a leading Charlotte counseling provider with a full spectrum of services, including individual counseling for such things as anxiety or depression, marriage counseling, family counseling, and group counseling. The mission of ACG is growing potential in people and relationships.

Anxiety and Depression Counseling
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) anxiety and depression affect 38 million Americans each year. Additionally, 75 million will suffer from an anxiety or depressive illness during some point in their lives.
At times, we all need help sorting out life’s challenges and struggles. Feelings of discouragement, anger, sadness, grief, fear, etc. are normal in response to life’s difficulties. These feelings can escalate to being unmotivated, disinterested, and even hopeless. Some people experience these feelings daily or nearly daily for no apparent reason, making normal, everyday functioning difficult. Sometimes these feelings can be overwhelming and can prevent us from living life.
Persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest in things that once brought pleasure can indicate the need for professional intervention. Whatever you may be facing today that keeps you from fully enjoying life, coming in for an assessment will either rule out any problems or help pinpoint what needs to be addressed.
