Lohan was in court Thursday morning to update Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner on the progress of her probation in drunken driving and misdemeanor theft cases.
The "Mean Girls" star has completed 33 hours at a women's shelter, and she spent a month under house arrest.
Sautner also told Lohan that she wouldn't give Lohan any additional time to complete the hours, even if she was working on a movie.
Lohan has completed one shoplifters anonymous class and is having trouble enrolling in court-ordered psychological counseling. Her attorney Shawn Holley said the actress is having difficulty paying for one-on-one counseling. She said the cheapest option would be group counseling, but they're worried that someone would try to sell her story to the media.
Sautner agreed with that concern, but she said Lohan needs to find someone to help her pay for the required counseling.
Lohan returns to court on Oct. 19 to give Sautner another update.
