through LSS Behavioral Health Services

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing. The need for mental health counseling looks different for every person.
Examples of clients served through the LSS Behavioral Health Services include:
- A teen, who has been the victim of sexual assault, receiving outpatient counseling sessions to learn ways to cope with his trauma and begin to trust again
- A couple, who has trouble communicating, seeking marital counseling sessions to strengthen their marriage
- A woman, mourning the death of her husband, attending counseling sessions to cope with her grief and manage the changing responsibilities of her daily life

Empower People through Coping Skills
When Amanda started counseling services, she was experiencing a lot of intense anxiety over a job loss. She felt like she didn’t have any direction in her life, and was experiencing frequent panic attacks. She started seeing a therapist at LSS and learned some coping skills to help with anxiety.
Amanda began to see how she could improve herself and committed to improving her situation. She worked on empowering herself and taking control of her life.
Because Amanda got the help she needed, she is now a successful local business owner and uses the coping skills learned to deal with the daily stresses that come with life and owning a business.
