Services offered at our Chicago/Streeterville location:

Individual Counseling and Therapy

Counseling, or “talk therapy” is a mainstay of treatment for mental health symptoms and is also utilized to help people transition through many of life’s most challenging situations. The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health is comprised of clinicians that are experts in the field of mental health. We have counselors that work with every age and we are able to help guide you through the process of finding the right person to work with.

Marriage and Couples Counseling

Every relationship experiences some degree of conflict. When conflict becomes excessive or severe, the stress can impact every member of the family and can put a strain on every aspect of daily life. We’re here to help! The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health has multiple therapists that specialize in family therapy and issues specific to couples. Having a trained clinician to help guide your communication strategies and to help re-establish a healthy connection in your relationship can help get things back on track.

Counseling for Children and Teens

Children and teens have very different needs than adults and express emotion in very different ways throughout their development. Our child and adolescent therapists train in specialized forms of therapy that help young kids express themselves, and help teens acquire the emotional coping skills they need to navigate the challenges of young adulthood. Parents frequently express how helpful it can be to benefit from an outside perspective when dealing with the challenging issues that come up in raising a family. Our clinic is fortunate to have several experts in specific mental health issues that occur early in life, and we’re able to provide diagnostic testing when needed to aid in treatment planning. Finding a clinician you trust is a crucial part of finding effective help for your child or teen, and we’re here to help guide you through every step along the way!

Psychological Testing and Diagnostic Assessment

Clinical psychologists are highly trained specialists in the area of diagnostic assessment and testing. All psychologists have doctoral-level training in the use of a wide range of psychological tests designed to help guide treatment. The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health has clinical psychologists with a wide range of specialty training, and we can provide diagnostic assistance to strengthen your overall treatment plan. Whether the goal is to aid education planning or medication selection, we can provide valuable input with the most advanced diagnostic tools in the field. Our psychological testing services are frequently utilized by counselors and psychiatrists in the community to help make their own services more effective, and we are happy to coordinate with your treatment providers.
