The Right Care. Right Now.

I am still taking clients during the current virus concerns via Zoom tele-counselling so that we can use video communications to have our sessions. Contact me directly to pre-arrange a telephone session.

Sometimes it is hard to feel comfortable without a personal counselor to confide in from time to time. Patty Wilkes Counseling is different from other consultations. From your very first appointment, you will have an experience that rivals other therapy services. We will work as partners to develop a plan that gives you support with no waiting time and extended appointment times to maximize your comfort and achieve your goals. I will get to know you and customize your care.

I am Patty Wilkes, LICSW which indicates that I am a licensed clinical social worker, certified for private independent practice in the state of Alabama. With 35 years of experience treating adults and adolescents for a variety of issues, I am deeply passionate about helping others. If needed I am pleased to work cooperatively with your physician or attorney as indicated by your situational needs. Located within the city limits of Athens, Alabama, I also serve individuals in Decatur, Madison, Elkmont and surrounding areas.

One unique thing about my practice is that I schedule appointments to accommodate all patients' needs. I recognize that occupational obligations, school schedules, and family responsibilities are increasingly complex. My availability includes days, evenings and weekends for the convenience of my patients. After your initial intake appointment, therapy by telephone is also available.

My practice is fee for service and, for your privacy, does not involve any external insurance company. I accept both cash and checks. I charge a flat fee for office visits for whatever length of time is necessary (without interference from insurance companies). I am pleased to provide you a receipt for your own submission to any insurance company of your choice. You can schedule an appointment by phone 256-431-5060 or by email - [email protected] . Open 7 days a week. I offer a 15-20 minute free consultation.

And everyone deserves a little sunshine."
