(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - A judge warned Lindsay Lohan on Thursday that she needed to enroll in psychological counseling and spend more time doing community service  or risk running into problems with her probation.

Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner reminded the 25-year-old actress during a status hearing that she had to complete 480 hours of community service by next April, and that she would not grant any extensions, even if Lohan is working on a film.

"I'm not going to give her five extra minutes. I don't want to hear, 'Oh, I couldn't do it because I was on the set of the John Gotti movie,'" Sautner said, according to TMZ.

The judge opened the hearing by telling Lohan that probation officials had submitted a report stating she had violated the terms of her release.

"Don't look shocked Ms. Lohan because it isn't true," Sautner said, explaining the probation officer was relying on incorrect information.

The judge did chide the actress for not providing officials with a phone number where she could be reached for monitoring.

It was Lohan's first appearance in court since completing 35 days of house arrest. Her attorney, Shawn Holley, noted the actress was prohibited from doing community service during that time.

Lohan, who arrived for the court hearing wearing a long black dress with a black belt, gray vest and black heels, has completed one of four anti-shoplifting classes. Sautner said she must complete the rest before returning to court on Oct. 19.

Holley said her client is having trouble enrolling in court-ordered psychological counseling. Sautner agreed that Lohan should not have to enroll in group treatment, but said she must find someone to counsel her within three weeks.

Lohan cannot afford to pay a psychiatrist who was previously treating her, Holley said, but would find a new program shortly.

The actress remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor grand theft case in which she pleaded no contest in May to taking a $2,500 necklace without permission.
