Psychological Therapy and Counseling Atlanta
Welcome to Atlantacounselinghope.com. My name is Lauren Hope Schwartz, and I offer evening and weekend counseling services at Buckhead Acupuncture and Herbal Center. Balancing a healthy diet, exercise, spirituality are helpful in maintaining total health, but often times, life’s stressors can bog us down. When these are not discussed and addressed, physical symptoms resulting from mental distress can manifest and cause greater problems down the line.
I believe that counseling is beneficial to people from all walks of life, as it’s a great way to obtain insight into one’s own developing self throughout the lifespan. Part of being human means experiencing a full spectrum of feelings and emotions as life goes on. Joy, sorrow, contentment, disappointment, grief, loss, longing, confusion, anxiety, depression, and feelings of uncertainty are normal, and impacts nearly everyone at some time or another. While medication is often necessary to cope with various mental health and life issues, counseling works to get to the emotional root of the problem, to process feelings, beliefs and ideas in a therapeutic way that medications alone cannot.
