Viroqua has a new clinic to assist community members with mental health concerns.

Stonehouse Counseling, 414 S. East Ave., has five licensed mental health clinicians. The clinicians working there are: David Dati, LMFT, LCSW, Gil Hoel, LCSW, Terra Knoble, LMFT, Chris Ruder-Vasconez, LMFT and Susan Townsley, LCSW. Roberta Ducharme is the office manager.

In order to introduce the community to their new facility and new practitioners, Stonehouse Counseling will be having an open house on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 4-7 p.m. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.

Susan Townsley, Gil Hoel and Chris Ruder were all working out of the Viroqua Healing Arts Center as the Viroqua Healing Arts Mental Health Center for many years. In order to meet the needs of the community the Viroqua Healing Arts Mental Health Center needed to expand. Since there was not room at the Viroqua Healing Arts Center to do so, Stonehouse Counseling was started.

Stonehouse is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The office staff can be reached at 608-638-3332 or
