Lindsey Coltraine, MFT Candidate
Master of Family Therapy Candidate, Mercer university
Who i work with
I enjoy providing specialized couples counseling services to couples and families. I have completed specialized training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy through the Gottman Institute (levels 1 and 2). I also have interest in Cognitive Behavioral therapy, as well as helping couples with children with chronic health and disability issues.

Please schedule online through the online scheduling portal, or submit the form below to get a call back from the scheduling assistant.
Initial sessions (80 minutes) are $100 and all regular 45 minute sessions are $75 per session thereafter. Insurance is not accepted, and these services cannot be counted towards insurance deductibles.
If you are in need of even lower rates, please visit our "Low Cost Counseling Services in Atlanta" web page for additional counseling resources in the Atlanta area. Lindsey offers counseling services at a very reduced rate, so that we may reach further into our community and provide services to those who may not otherwise afford it or have access to care or resources.
I enjoy working with couples of all ages and stages of life. I know how difficult it can be to talk to a stranger about problems in your life, so I really focus on building a strong relationship with my clients. I am intensively trained in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy, the single most effective form of couples therapy available today. I also use an Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach to help my clients gain insight into the meaning behind your thoughts and emotions. I don’t think change happens immediately, but I would like to help you on your journey.
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
I knew from an early age that I wanted to study psychology, because I was fascinated with learning about people and how the mind works. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Georgia.
In my pursuit to find a career where I could express my passion for loving on others, I completed a Master of Science in Nursing degree from Georgia Health Sciences University. I worked for a few years in long-term acute care and then inpatient mental health where I gained great experience working with mental disabilities and substance abuse.
My experience as a nurse was invaluable, but I found that I really enjoyed connecting with people in a way that the duties of a nurse don't allow. I made the decision to go back to school, and I am currently completing my Master of Family Therapy.
I moved to the Atlanta area a few years ago and grew up in Macon, GA. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2012, and we have a son. In my spare time, you will find me spending time with my family and reading. I love trying new foods and traveling. Most of all, I am passionate about helping people.
I receive my primary clinical supervision from several faculty members of Mercer University. Stephanie Cook, LCSW, owner of Counseling ATL, LLC, also provides me with mentoring and supervision on site.
