Paula Buford, TH.D. LPC

Because I consider counseling to be a ministry and a calling, I work on a sliding fee scale. My standard fee is $125/session, I do not take insurance, so clients will need to pay out of pocket. However, by not using insurance, my clients will not have a mental illness diagnosis that can affect their ability to purchase health insurance or receive treatment in the future.

Some of my specialities include:

  1. Long term individual psychotherapy (“talk therapy”)

  2. Brainspotting - a way to work through the body to access stored trauma (especially    PTSD)

  3. Hypnotherapy

  4. Support groups and workshops

  5. Conducting funerals and memorial services

  6. Marriage counseling, pre-marital counseling and weddings

  7. Trauma work - emotional, physical, spiritual

  8. Dealing with depression, anxiety, and excessive anger

  9. Loss and transition (death, divorce, even positive transitions)

  10. Chronic/terminal illness and disability

  11. Support for caregivers of aging parents

  12. Expressive art (drawing, collages, mandalas, work with clay and beads for self    expression)

  13. Helping people understand why they are unhappy even when their lives are full of good    things

  14. Developing healthy and fulfilling relationships

  15. Learning to both give and receive from others

  16. Developing healthy self love

I work by appointment and my office is located at:

315 W. Ponce de Leon Avenue, Suite 558

Decatur, GA 30030
