I am passionate about supporting LGBTQIA + individuals who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, identity exploration and development, understanding neurodivergence, trauma, and navigating the stressors of life as someone with multiple intersections of identity. I am also poly and kink aware and welcome clients from these populations. As a transgender , neurodivergent, lesbian , and geeky woman, I am familiar with the struggles that queer people have living in the south. I am also able to help people with ADHD and Autism and also help parents of people with ADHD and Autism.

Do you love video games? Comic books? Dungeons and Dragons? Do you have difficulties managing feelings of anxiety or motivating yourself to do the things that bring you joy? Have you ever experienced a sense of societal or cultural mismatch? Me too! When it comes to learning how to adjust in a world that is ever-changing and often debilitating or scary, I’ve found that nothing beats talking to someone who gets you at your core. I work with geeks, nerds, dorks, and dweebs, LGBTQIA folx, members of the Kink community, ethical non-monogamists, and people of all cultures and spiritualities to uncover the source of your unique struggles.

We are an LGBTQ friendly office.
I am only offering testing and evaluation services at this time. I have been licensed as a clinical psychologist in Georgia since 2013, and I specialize in psychological testing to help clarify mental health diagnoses and offer guidance for treatment. I also conduct psychoeducational testing to assess academic skills, potential learning disorders, and other conditions that impact learning, and I offer specific and empirically supported recommendations to help individuals meet their full cognitive and academic potential. Some evaluations can be completed via telehealth, depending on the needs.

I am a Trans , Queer and Non-Binary-affirming clinician; I will meet you as the whole human you are, in the context of each part of your self and your world.
Hello. I'm Laura Joplin, MSW. I believe it’s through an integration of somatic and contemplative tools like yoga and meditation with therapeutic skills and practice that we understand a key truth: we don’t need to be fixed, but seen. Sessions with me are a place to land and center amidst the swirl of life, to develop skills around self-regulation and empowerment, to form goals and intentions for practice and for life, and to receive kind accountability around it all. I show up to session relaxed (comfy pants and flowy clothes!), warm and personable, humorous and aware of the challenging environmental circumstances we all face.

Personally and professionally, I am part of the LGBTQ + community and adoption constellation.
Currently, not accepting new clients due to scheduling. - - Researching therapists is a big step, especially when you're used to handling things alone. Maybe it's due to recent events or something else, but things have changed. You're emotionally burned out. While you may be more comfortable supporting others, know that it's ok to get support for yourself. Therapy can be transformative when you're ready.

Seeking support and finding time to dedicate to therapy is a brave first step in determining your course, and I honor you for it. I welcome people of all backgrounds in my practice and have experience working with diverse populations including autistic individuals, people with ADD/ADHD, the LGBTQ + community and immigrants.

My practice focuses on psychotherapy, neuropsychological assessment, and educational advocacy. Due to COVID, I am offering tele-assessment for those in high risk groups or w/ family members who are. Issues include: learning problems, employment challenges, relationship struggles, life transitions, developmental disorders, medical illnesses, and stress of being a member of a diverse group ( LGBT , ethnic minorities, etc.). I see children/adults who may be unconventional, anxious, depressed or do not fit comfortably within their environment. The label “disability” may be applied to them, but “differently abled” is more accurate.

You do not need to be fixed. You need to feel cared for, understood, and accepted, by yourself and others! These are core human needs and when they are met we are better equipped to feel authentic connections to ourselves and others, cope with distress, and find inner happiness. Within us lies incredible resources for healing and transformation. My goal is to foster an environment that activates your innate healing resources, leading to mental, emotional, and physical well being.

Anxiety is the most common struggle among the clients I work with. While anxiety is extremely uncomfortable, it can also bring us really valuable information. In therapy, I help people slow down and identify the components of the anxiety so we can decode that information and use it to move forward with a greater sense of calm.

What type of Chamblee mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Chamblee?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
