Kaitlyn McLaughlin, MS, APC

Associate Professional Counselor

Teletherapy online only

I am an Associate Professional Counselor working toward licensure as an LPC. I graduated with a Bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in sociology from the University of North Georgia, Gainesville. I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling Psychology from Brenau University, where I earned an additional specialization in psychometrics and was awarded the Ali McNichols Outstanding Graduate Student Award. I am also a part-time faculty member of Brenau University and a member of the Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCA) of Georgia and the American Counseling Association (ACA).

I understand that making the decision to begin therapy can sometimes be difficult; but I believe that therapy can be a powerful experience for anyone who has the desire to begin the journey toward living the life they desire and deserve. I can provide a safe and confidential space to explore your unique life experiences, gain insight, and learn healthier ways to cope with life’s busy and often chaotic challenges. I tailor my treatment perspective to each individual client in order to provide the most personalized therapeutic experience in order to help you make the positive changes you've been searching for in your life. I have experience working with teenagers and adults from all walks of life.


I am uniquely qualified in treating individuals with depression, anxiety, life changes and adjustment issues, trauma/PTSD, and LGBTQIA+ issues. I believe that a trusting therapeutic alliance along with self-compassion and desire for growth can be the monumental foundations for change in one's life.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I currently only offer sessions via teletherapy online Tuesdays - Thursdays. When conditions become more safe, I will resume office hours at the Gainesville location.

I do not currently accept insurance. My private pay fees are:

$95 for an initial intake appointment (individuals)

$75 for each session thereafter (individuals)

*contact me for more information regarding couples/family session fees

I would be honored to walk alongside you on your journey toward a healthier and happier life!
