Telehealth Available Throughout Illinois

All of the clinicians with the LodeStone Center provide services through Telehealth in addition to our in-office options. Every clinician with our organization is licensed and credentialed to provide services to any resident in Illinois.

Therapy where you need it, when you need it.

Access the right provider, regardless of geography.

Your mental health matters, regardless of how busy your schedule is. With our streamlined Telehealth options, we can meet you on your terms: when and where you need us. Whether you need the flexibility to squeeze a session into a busy workday or simply are unable to commute to one of our office locations, all of us at the clinic work with patients through Telehealth. Some people receive services entirely remotely, and others switch back and forth, preferring an occasional in-person contact when it works for them.

Stress, anxiety, depression and burnout have reached most of us in the past several years. Many people are receiving help for the first time, or re-engaging with therapy as they have hit a difficult chapter in life. If reaching out for a first visit seems more approachable on your terms, from the comfort of your own space, we are here for you. Feel free to reach out and schedule an initial appointment whenever you’re ready.
