Mental Health Clinic
Twin Cities Therapy and Counseling Associates is a mental health clinic born out of a love of helping people build healthy, happy, and secure relationships. We are highly trained therapists with a range of personalities and interests, bound by exemplary ethics and a commitment to personalized work with our clients. By choice, we are not a large clinic; rather, we are a mid-sized group of collaborative private practitioners.

We hold sessions in our comfortable mental health clinic and via Tele-Therapy (video visits). We typically can schedule you within a week of contacting us. We offer appointments from 8am to 8pm, Monday through Saturday. Importantly, when you contact us, we make a point of listening carefully to your needs and match you to the best therapist.
Counseling and Therapy Services
Women often come to therapy challenged with a variety of conflicting expectations rising from the responsibilities of balancing home and career. Many are natural caretakers who want to change patterns that no longer work for them. Women often have dreams and ideas about how to live a rich, fulfilling life, yet can’t seem to find enough hours in the day. Where the women’s movement over the last 50 years has allowed women to broaden their roles and have a louder voice, we are now challenged to determine what this new femininity means in terms in our everyday life.
Anxiety, communication, or big transitions such as parenting or job loss have traditionally brought men to therapy. More and more, men are looking to explore their own values and determine their own path to happiness. Counseling is an ideal place to think out loud and develop a plan to thrive in relationship with yourself, your loved ones, and in the world. And now, you don’t even have to leave home to attend. Tele-health or traditional therapy with a competent mental health provider is just a call away. Read More
Individual therapy today is a collaborative relationship between a client and the therapist. During the initial phase of therapy, goals are established and steps are identified to achieve them. A therapist is someone who offers support, listens attentively, models a healthy and positive relationship, and provides meaningful feedback. Therapists develop a deep awareness of life trends and challenges while listening to and learning from their clients. Thus talking to a therapist can be like talking to a small community in one, helping to give a perspective to an individual’s worries.
Therapy is not about giving advice but providing an environment in which the individual becomes informed and skilled in making the best decisions for him or herself. Having an experienced therapist with a wide perspective on the problem often helps immensely to gain insights and to make new decisions. Read more.
When a significant life event hits a family, children are often the first members to go to therapy. We see this as a tribute to how much we love our children. In showing our kids the value in asking for help, we are providing a lasting model toward reaching out rather than isolating. Therapists can help kids and their parents practice skills to process both events and emotions, assuring that everyone has a voice and is heard. We are committed to focusing on resiliency and life skills, using the “problem” as content but never as defining the child.
