Abundant Life, P.C. Counseling Services celebrates over 13 years of providing quality counseling services to South Metro Atlanta. In June of 2004, Abundant Life, P.C. Counseling Services began serving clients out of Community Christian Church in Sharpsburg, GA. As the practice grew, Harps Crossing Baptist Church in Fayetteville, GA invited Abundant Life, P.C. Counseling Services to expand to a second location by seeing client's out of their facility in 2008. In November of 2010, Abundant Life, P.C Counseling Services moved to it's own facility in Fayetteville off of Hwy 54 in Magnolia Office Park at 500 Lanier Avenue, W., Suite 606A. In order to better serve the south metro Atlanta community, Abundant Life, P.C. Counseling Services moved to a more central location in Peachtree City at Executive Suites at Aberdeen Corners at 2011 Commerce Drive, Suite A105 in May of 2014. April 18, 2016, Abundant Life, P.C. Counseling Services merged with Connie Jones Counseling and Coaching, LLC to form The Peachtree City Therapy Group. Most recently, in 2017 we changed our name to Arise Counseling and Coaching. Sharing a common mission, we are so excited to collaborate to offer new and expanded services to better meet the needs of those we serve! We will now be serving you at 1303 Commerce Drive, just down the street from our former office. 1303 Commerce drive is located in the World's Gym building between the entrance to the World's Gym and NV Salon on the side facing Hwy 74.
