10 years of experience

Hate Atlanta traffic? I offer virtual therapy from the comfort of your home. "Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals." -Pema Chodron Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, or hurt from past wounds? Are you just ready to "feel better"? Hi my name is Lauren Manning, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I believe in creating a safe, nonjudgmental space for my clients. Together we will explore difficult emotions and develop the skills to make positive changes in your life. My goal is to ultimately "work myself out of a job" by teaching you practical, evidence-based skills that you can use during our time together and beyond. Let's begin healing.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

We'll start with brief introductions and move to identifying what brings you to therapy. By the end of the session, we'll have an idea of our "road map" and what you plan to get out of therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I strive to make therapy comfortable and collaborative. You truly are the expert of your life, and it is my job to gently guide you.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is the "gold standard" for anxiety and depression based mental health challenges. We will work together to become more aware of and challenge negative/dysfunctional thinking patterns

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

DBT is highly effective for clients who have experienced trauma. We will work together to build distress tolerance and emotional regulation.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a highly effective model that encourages building upon a client's strengths.
