The Counseling Center at LaSalle School offers outpatient services to youth (ages 5-26) along with their families, struggling with a wide range of behavioral and mental health concerns. These include:
- Anxiety & Depression
- Grief & Loss issues
- Complex Trauma
- Addiction (both youth & family)
- Sexual Abuse (both victim & youth with problematic sexual behaviors)
The Counseling Center’s goal for expanding into outpatient mental health for the past 30 years has been to provide an array of services that will allow youth to remain in their homes and communities without further penetrating the legal or mental health system.
