Frequently Asked Questions

50 minute Marriage/Family Counseling Sessions: $200

50 minute Individual Counseling Sessions are $170.

I accept credit cards, cash, or check.

I do not accept insurance, but I can offer a receipt for out of network reimbursement for individual counseling. You can check with your insurance provider to see if this is an option. Please note, if you choose to use your insurance, I have to make a diagnosis, which stays in your health record.

Yes! I can offer online video sessions to residents of Georgia on the HIPAA compliant version of Zoom. While scheduling your appointment on the client portal, select the “Online Video” option instead of “Office Visit” in the drop down menu. Please also send me a message letting me know you’d like our session to be online. I will then send you the link and password for all our online sessions.

Coaching is for folks who are in a great place mentally, and just need some extra support, accountability, and tools for reaching their goals. Some common reasons people choose coaching:

– Support in setting boundaries
– Help simplifying life and removing excess
– Support in reaching business, fitness, educational, or relational goals

Counseling can incorporate all of the above as well, but is more comprehensive. The good news is, if you chose a counselor as your coach, you don’t have to choose. For more information on the counseling services I offer, click here.

Choosing the right counselor is very important! I offer a free 10 minute phone consultation, in which I’ll ask why you are seeking counseling or coaching. I will let you know if my training and experience is a good match for what you’re hoping to accomplish.  I highly recommend asking a counselor about his/her training and experience, how sessions are structured, whether or not she/he has had success in whichever issue you’re wanting help with. You have the right to “interview” your potential counselors, as well as get a sense of whether or not you could make a connection with the counselor in the first interaction.
Sessions usually last 50 minutes and the frequency is determined by your goals. Most people come once a week, or once every 2 weeks. In our first session, I will be getting to know you and your desires for counseling or coaching. It’s normal to feel a little nervous in the first session, but I promise I’m not scary and I’ll do my best to put you at ease.

If you must cancel your appointment for any reason, please call or email Lauren at 404.913.1102 or at least 48 business hours in advance of your scheduled appointment. Not doing so will result in being billed at the full rate. Our session is very important to me, as are you. I plan my day around our scheduled appointment, so please be considerate.
