Twin Cities Therapy and Counseling Associates was born out of a love of helping people to have healthy, happy, and secure relationships. We are highly trained therapists with a range of personality and interests bound by exemplary ethics and 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. When you call us, we make a point of listening carefully to your needs and matching you to the best therapist. We offer appointment times compatible with your busy schedule.
Get Your Life Moving in the Direction You Want.
If you truly want to feel relaxed and confident within yourself or a relationship, then a good place to begin is by taking a deeper look at what is standing in your way.
Through individual counseling, you can freely explore your feelings, reactions, and desires without censoring or judgment. Our therapists give you room to uncover what is happening, and can assist you in identifying your needs, wants, and strengths in a way that will help you to feel heard and understood.
Couples counseling can help you to have a designated time to openly discuss reactions, concerns, and goals about the shifts in your relationship. It can provide you with tools to enhance empathy and intimacy between you. When we work together with you as a couple, you will become clear about what you can and cannot control, and where you can put your energy to mobilize the best changes possible. You will feel more empowered in who you are together and be able to communicate it to each other with clarity and confidence.
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.
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, but have never stopped long enough to figure out what to say. We have social expectations about how to live a rich, fulfilling life, yet can’t seem to find enough hours in the day. Where the woman’s movement over the last 50 years has allowed women to broaden their roles, we are now challenged to determine what this new femininity means in our everyday life.
Men are often sent to therapy by the women who love them. Other times men come to us looking for a safe place to explore the view of “being male” they grew up with. We welcome men to see this as an opportunity to join their girlfriends, wives, and daughters to understand the cultural change in men’s roles taking place over the last 30 or 40 years. Learn the relationship and communication skills that you were never taught as a child.
