helping people connect & discover true intimacy

About NACS

North Atlanta Counseling Services
Established in 1979, North Atlanta Counseling Services (NACS) helps people grow and change through the application of biblical principles and counseling theory.

We all have a need and desire for deep, meaningful relationships. When our relationships aren't "working" there is no greater pain. No one is immune to hurt. Our goal is to help people deal effectively with the hurt and overcome the barriers that keep them from experiencing true intimacy.
