Mental Health and Wellness Services offered at our Hinsdale location:
Individual Counseling (sometimes referred to as “talk therapy”), is a mainstay of treatment for mental health. It can help people transition through many of life’s most challenging situations. 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. The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health is comprised of clinicians that are experts in the field of mental health.
Marriage and Couples Counseling
Every relationship will experience some degree of conflict. If this 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.
Luckily, LodeStone Center is here to help! We have multiple therapists that specialize in family therapy and issues specific to couples. Let a trained clinician help guide you and to help re-establish a healthy connection in your relationship can help get things back on track.
Counseling for Children and Adolescents
Children and adolescents don’t have the same needs as adults. They 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. 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.
Behavioral Health Services
The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health offers evidence-based therapeutic services for a wide range of mental health conditions. We have therapists with specialty training in research validated modalities such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We offer specialty services for specific diagnoses such as Eating Disorders, non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), Tourette’s Disorder, ADHD, OCD. We also offer more generalized therapy for depression, other mood disorders and anxiety disorders. If you need help directly, or would like to refer a patient or a loved one, please don’t hesitate to speak with one of our staff.
The LodeStone Center for Behavioral Health is fortunate to have clinicians with advanced training in specialized areas of treatment. We routinely get requests for clinical supervision from clinicians in the community, and are always eager to help bolster the services in our community. If you are a clinician looking to expand your clinical skills, or need support in helping a client with a specific issue, give us a call. We do provide hourly supervision and case consultation services. We also have clinicians that specialize in the delivery of integrated behavioral health services that consult with the medical community. If you’re a medical provider and would like assistance improving the degree to which your services are integrated with behavioral health, we can help! You can contact the clinic and ask to be connected with one of our directors to discuss consultative services.
How long does counselling take?
The typical length of counselling varies considerably based on a number of factors, but usually ranges from weeks to months. Some issues improve in a short timeframe (4-6 weeks), and others require consistent effort over many months (or longer). Your first counselling visit provides an opportunity for your clinician to get a sense of the history behind your concerns, and we should be able to give you a reasonable plan of action in the first visit. You will play an active role in deciding the plan for your therapy along the way.
When would I need to specifically see a Psychologist?
Psychologists perform the same types of psychotherapy that counselors do, with some additional services when needed. They are highly trained in psychological assessment (testing) and sometimes offer a range of diagnostic services for physicians and other mental health providers. Psychologists may have additional specializations provided during their doctoral education that they list in their staff profile. Counselors often pursue specializations as well, either during, or after their graduate education. Your intake coordinator can help you find a good fit for the concerns that bring you to us for services, based on what you discuss in your initial call.
Our intake coordinator for The Lodestone Center, located at 15 Spinning Wheel Rd in Hinsdale can help guide you through your first visit, and help pair you with the right person.
