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.

We currently offer counseling appointments in-person and via Telehealth. If you are feeling unwell or are unable to make it to an in-person appointment, Telehealth is a great way to access services from where you are.

Contact your local LSS Behavioral Health office to see what options are available in your area. We will work with you to determine service delivery that best matches your current needs. Not all services are offered in all locations.

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.
