Telehealth Behavioral Health Services
Amidst the concern about the spread of coronavirus, COVID-19, ensuring our clients and staff are in a safe and healthy environment is our greatest concern. Telehealth counseling services are a good alternative in today's pandemic climate.
LSS is here to listen. Our counselors help individuals, families, couples, and groups process emotional impact. Our behavioral health services help you better understand how this influences your own behavior as well as the behaviors of those around you.
LSS therapists and counselors have been providing telehealth behavioral health services and substance use services since 2015; services are HIPAA compliant.
Personal Connection with Counseling Services
Telehealth may be more comfortable than you first realize. It may even surprise you how easy it is to communicate and find a personal level of comfort. Similar to our on-site counseling appointments, our behavioral health providers create an environment that is safe and comfortable for you.
“No matter what I say, there is going to be that fear and apprehension. But there are people at LSS who really want to help me. They understand that this is not easy, and they know how to deal with that. How many times do we hang up before we let the call go through? That is normal. But I’m always glad that I do it. I’m going to be ok.” –counseling client

Affordable Counseling Services
LSS is covered under most insurance plans. We accept South Dakota Medicaid and Medicare. Some insurance requires pre-certification procedures. Please note that not all pay sources reimburse for service delivery via telehealth.
