LifeWorks provides school-based therapy services in the Ankeny Community School District and Ballard Community School District. We partner 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.
