Where are you located?

We have two locations to meet in person— our main office in Peachtree Corners, and one in Buckhead. We also schedule HIPAA compliant video sessions with clients from anywhere.

How do I schedule my initial session?

You can either contact us by phone, email, or book online through our website to view our availability and schedule your initial session. Please contact your therapist if you have any questions about his/her availability online; he/she may be able to schedule you for additional hours that are not shown.

Do you take insurance or offer a sliding scale?

We do not take insurance, however, we are happy to provide the necessary documentation to file a reimbursement claim with your insurance company. Please check with your insurance company for your policy’s coverage on “out of network” co-pays and deductibles, and/or if your HSA account will cover mental health and counseling.

We do offer a sliding scale. We understand that counseling fees can be a hindrance to seeking help and we take into account the client’s income as well as any extenuating circumstances. Your therapist is happy to work with your budget and needs to provide a plan that will work for you.

How does therapy work?

Your very first appointment will be an intake assessment of your background, your family history, and the current issue that brought you into therapy. The following sessions help to formulate a plan to focus on your needs in a safe place so that you can strengthen your resilience, develop coping skills and find meaning and joy in the midst of your healing.

Who do you see?

HLCG is dedicated to serving individuals ages 13 and up, couples, families, and even various types of groups and faiths.

What is your cancellation policy?

Our therapists keep a full schedule and consider time with clients to be a professional commitment, and we ask that you do the same. If you need to cancel or reschedule, please notify your therapist, or contact one of our front office staff at least 24 hours in advance. This helps us to inform other clients who may be on a waiting list. If you need to cancel or reschedule within the 24 hour window, you will be held responsible for the full fee, even if you are on the sliding scale.

What is a “Fast Start”?

Sometimes you need fast start on the road to healing so we created a fast start for you. This is a 120 minute session ( 2 sessions back to back). This is like getting 2 weeks of counseling at one sitting. This unique approach is custom designed for your needs and does work. This is a great opportunity to get that troubled situation really moving in a positive direction.
