Lindsay Lohan is willing to seek the help she thinks she needs.

On Friday, the troubled starlet's attorney, Mark Heller, filed a motion requesting that Lohan's ongoing probation-violation case be put on the "slow track" in order for her to pursue "certain activities which will benefit her" and enable her to be a "productive and responsible…contributor to society."

Now, in a letter included in that motion and obtained by E! News, Heller details the 26-year-old star's plan of action to supposedly pull her life together—one that includes psychotherapy sessions, public-service efforts and a proposal to establish a foundation benefiting young people.

In the letter, addressed to the Santa Monica City Attorney and dated Feb. 4, Heller writes: "Lindsay has asked me to facilitate an in-person meeting…not to discuss the merits of her defense of the details of her case, but rather for Lindsay to introduce herself…and express her desire to share her thoughts and help in the process of our determining what the best course would be for her future and to personally affirm her commitment and dedication to fix the problems."

He then explains that "Lindsay will gladly be participating in intensive psychotherapy, submitting herself to regular screenings and contributing her time to the production of public-service messages and periodic visits to schools, hospitals and other venues where she may provide inspirational talks, encouraging children to pursue positive goals and avoid bad habits."

LiLo's "finally made a decision to turn her life around," says source

Heller also notes that the actress is "exploring the establishment of a Lindsay Lohan Foundation" whose goal is to "provide a nonprofit program to benefit young people."

In his motion, the legal eagle is asking the court to dismiss charges against Lohan stemming from a June car crash in which the actress is accused of lying to police that she wasn't behind the wheel.

A hearing is set for Friday, when the judge will rule on Heller's request.
