Counseling Services Now Offered

I am now available to provide counseling services for individuals, couples, and families. I have a limited number of openings on Thursdays starting September 1, 2016.

I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in Louisiana for 18 years and have been a full-time professor of Counselor Education at Louisiana State University for the past 17 years (See my bio on the About Me tab). I have extensive experience writing and researching issues related to girls’ and women’s mental health, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance use, self-injury, sexual assault, and relationship violence. Prior to my work at LSU, I had counseling experience with adolescents, young adults/college students), adult men and women, couples, and families. As I write about in my book Swimming Upstream, I am especially prepared to work with parents who are concerned about parenting their preteen/adolescent daughters.

I have experience and can help with any of the following issues:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Parenting (especially for parents of preteen and adolescent girls)
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Perfectionism
  • Self-esteem and identity issues for adolescents and young adults
  • Relationship and family conflict
  • Marriage and couples counseling
  • Work/family balance concerns
  • Adjustment to new life phase (e.g., motherhood, retirement)
  • Eating disorders
  • Self-injury
  • Substance use concerns
  • Sexual assault and trauma
  • Intimate partner violence

Please contact me today at laurachoate@me.com for an appointment. My part-time office is located through Baton Rouge Counseling Associates at 10905 Perkins Road, Suite B, Baton Rouge, LA.
