Hi, my name is Laura Pearson. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia with over seven years experience. I have worked with clients with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse, relationship issues, parenting problems, life change difficulties, and grief/loss. I am so glad that you are exploring options to help you become a healthier individual, and I know that finding the right therapist that you can connect with is a daunting, but vital key to your success in reaching your goals. I would love the opportunity to come alongside of you on this journey and offer you guidance and support.
I am a warm, empathetic counselor who strives to convey care, compassion, and respect to each client as a unique individual. My approach to counseling is a holistic outlook that tends to the whole person. I utilize a combination of therapeutic approaches to tailor your therapy to where you are and help you move forward into more healing and wholeness. Although I pull from a variety of theories, I use a systems approach and CBT often. I also have training in Strategic Trauma and Abuse Recovery (S.T.A.R.) for the treatment of traumatic experiences.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Laura is THE best therapist I have ever had. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and warm-hearted. She is so in tune with my needs, and I truly appreciate how she stays up-to-date with the latest trends in therapy. She makes me feel taken care of, and my time with her has given me confidence that I can handle what life throws at me! I can honestly say that my time with her has been transformational. I’m sad and happy that she’s leaving BetterHelp. I know wherever she goes, she will be changing lives. She’s definitely doing God’s work here. I’m excited to see where my journey with her ends.
