School-Based Therapy

Lifeworks has been proud to provide school-based therapy services in the Ankeny School District for over five years. Each Ankeny School building has access to a licensed mental health therapist to provide counseling at the school building during the school day, allowing for more time to be spent in the classroom rather than traveling to appointments.

Lifeworks partners closely with the school, family, and community to ensure positive outcomes for each student. Issues that might lead to a referral include anxiety, ADHD, behaviors at school or at home, blended families, divorce, death in the family, depression, major life changes, self-esteem, bullying, healthy relationships, self-harm, stress or other concerns.

Referrals can be made directly to school guidance counselors, school social workers, or through our main LifeWorks office number at    515-255-8399.
