Mental Health Counseling
Licensed therapists are on staff to listen and guide you through any struggles you may be experiencing.
Communication is critical in relationships. If you and someone you know need some help talking through difficult subjects we can help.
Outreach and Homeless Support
We work with other community resources to support those experiencing homelessness.
Sometimes the connection and support of a group of people going through the same thing can make all the difference. Give us a call for current group therapy availability.
Now more than ever it is important to make sure mental health resources are available to our children. We work with the school system to make sure every child had what they need.

Dianna (“Di”) Koch
Behavioral Health Manager
Dianna (“Di”) Koch, the Behavioral Health Manager and Behavioral Health Nurse Case Manager joined the Clinic in January. “I wanted to work here because of the solid leadership I saw. During the pandemic, this Clinic stood out as stable and supportive due to the quality of leaders it has,” Di said.
Di lives in Three Lakes, has been married for 15 years, and has two children. She worked in Forest County as a Behavioral Health Registered Nurse and Case Manager for 10 years.
“I have a passion to help people who struggle with mental illness and/or addiction. I strive for mental and physical health in my personal life and try to exemplify healthy goals,” she shared.
She is focused on supporting and growing the Behavioral Health services that the Clinic offers, which include mental health and substance use services. “I want to get to know this community more and be supportive however possible.”
“I got into nursing after joining a humanitarian aid agency at 18 years old for a year. I was part of a medical relief team that sailed to Honduras and hosted a summer-long mobile medical clinic all around the country. It was there I was inspired to spend my life helping people. There’s too much hurt in the world and if I can do my part to make it slightly better, then that’s what I’ll do.”
