I believe, as a transgender woman, it is my duty to help my own community.
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.

As a queer, transmasculine genderfluid, and neurodivergent person who grew up in rural Georgia, I can appreciate the sometimes rocky road to wellness, self-discovery, and self-actualization. My hope is that I can provide the support you need to achieve well-being in the ways that are most important to you. I am particularly passionate about supporting LGBTQ+ individuals who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, substance use challenges, identity concerns, or relationship conflict.

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.

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.

Deciding to begin therapy could be one of the most challenging decisions you face for you and your family. Identifying that you need additional support and accepting the challenge of allowing someone to step in and provide you with that support is a major step in the right direction and requires a lot of courage. Counseling is more than telling a stranger your problems. It’s a decision that will enable you to learn how to manage your stress or circumstance, giving you the energy you need to pursue your goals and live a more peaceful, satisfying and fulfilling life.

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.
