Telehealth Available

If you are experiencing stress or anxiety and need help, please contact us!  We offer behavioral health services via telehealth, which means you can see a counselor from the comfort and safety of your own home.  We do not require an in person visit to our office to get started.  Simply contact us at 515-233-2250 and we will make a virtual appointment for you within the next 24-48 hours.  All you need is your smart phone, tablet or computer.

Due to the nature of the coronavirus, most insurance companies will now pay for telehealth counseling sessions, even if this was not the case in the past.  Please contact us or your insurance company if you have questions.

YSS therapists specialize in a variety of therapeutic methods and treat people of all ages.  Don’t spend the next four weeks (or more) suffering in isolation.  Reach out to us today so we can help and support you through this crisis.
