Laura King

(LPC, NCC)

About Me

My name is Laura King, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) located in Georgia. I received a Master’s degree in Community Counseling from Columbus State University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from The University of North Georgia.

I have over 10 years of experience in the field of mental health counseling in both inpatient and outpatient settings as well as within the prison system. Throughout my years as a therapist, I have worked with clients who simply need to talk through life events that they have not adjusted to well all the way to clients who have significant and debilitating mental illnesses. Most recently, I worked for over 3 years in a women's prison treating women who have dual-diagnoses (both a substance problem and a mental health problem)

My theoretical orientation is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I focus on helping clients identify how their thought patterns influence their emotions and behaviors. It is important to me that my clients feel supported during therapy and build upon their strengths to make the positive changes they desire.

In recent years I have begun integrating a holistic approach to my counseling practice. I received a certification in Holistic Nutrition in order to provide my clients with increased knowledge of how their daily nutrition impacts their mental health as well as overall wellness.

I love Laura! She listens to me and helps me talk through my problems which in return helps me realize things about myself I didn’t know.

Laura is an incredible listener and truly seems to understand what I am trying to say. I’ve tried therapy many times, this is the only time I have felt that someone truly heard me. I would recommend her a million times over.

Ms. King is exceptional at her job. I have some reservations about online counseling and the ability to make a connection, but texting has worked so well for me because, honestly, I didn't need as much help as often as I thought I did. In reality, having her there to receive my messages is enough to get me through the day.

Laura is always very understanding of my situation and is knowledgeable about a variety of mental health issues. She has helped me a lot.

I’m really surprised at how well a counselor is able to get to know me when there is no face to face communication. This is really a testament to how good Laura is. She has helped me begin to find a path to happiness and contentment in my life - even if I was kicking and screaming a bit and not really wanting to follow her good advice! I first went to BetterHelp after experiencing a traumatic event in my extended family, and it rattled me to the core. I was unable to find happiness and purpose in other aspects of my life. It is wonderful to be able to talk to someone anytime and anywhere. This is such a great tool for busy professionals.

Laura is wonderful. She is responsive and respectful, but she also connects to this light-heartedness in me that helps me to stay positive. She makes it clear that I am not alone in my struggles and insecurities and has helped me to set goals which have already begun to break down my tangle of cognitive distortions.

Laura King is an excellent therapist, she listens and can relate to your issues. She has done a lot for me and even when I can't make an appointment she always responds quickly to me when I send her a message. I also like the fact that she doesn't sugarcoat things, she tells it like it is. When we are lost, we need someone else to give us perspective. Laura does just that.

I really LIKE Laura! I feel as though she is she is a great "fit" for me, and she is very understanding and compassionate. Messaging with her is like messaging back and forth with a dear friend who really "gets you," truly CARES about you... and gives you good ADVICE! Just knowing that she is there for me makes a big difference in my life. Her presence has helped me a lot already... and I am ever so thankful to have connected with her. :)

She's down to earth, gives great practical advice, and her last book suggestion became one of my all time favorite reads. Just natural and easy conversation that leaves me feeling inspired.

When I first started with better help, I was having high anxiety about my job and other things going on in my life. However, however Laura help me work through my issues, and get past my anxiety. It led me to find a better job, with more pay and fewer hours. My anxiety decreased tenfold, and my tension headaches almost completely disappeared. She responds quickly and she's very friendly. I feel like I'm just talking to a friend. It's nice to not have to go somewhere to talk to someone, and I can just text anytime, no matter what or when. I highly recommend!
