Therapists

Our mental health professionals are based in various locations throughout the state. All of our therapists provide high-quality care and treat every individual with respect and compassion. View our mental health locations.

In order to slow the spread of COVID-19, we currently offer counseling appointments via video conferencing and by phone. We use a secure online video connection so that you can have a private visit with one of our providers from anywhere.

We also provide in-home and community-based services where needed. For families in crisis, we offer Intensive In-Home Treatment — a children’s therapy service based in the home.

If you can’t find what you are looking for or have additional questions, please call 888.881.8261 or email counseling@lssmn.org.
