Northland Therapy Center

Mission

Northland Therapy Center is a multidisciplinary group of psycho-therapists who provide  client-centered individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, and supportive group therapy in a safe and comfortable environment. From its beginning, Northland Therapy Center enjoyed a unique relationship with the LGBTQ community. As our practice has grown to include the broader community, we have remained true to our origins while welcoming all individuals who would like to work with us on their goals and personal issues.

History

Northland Therapy Center has been in existence as an agency for over 30 years, opening its doors July 1, 1985 and moving to our current location in 1992. The agency began with a focus to provide mental health services to the LGBTQ community at a time when access to safe and supportive psychotherapy for that population was still uncommon. It was formed by a group of therapists who had provided services through Lesbian and Gay Community Services, which had recently closed. That nonprofit agency started in the early 1970s, and was itself a spin-off from Gay House, a drop-in center and help line, that was part of the early gay liberation movement in the Twin Cities. We are both proud and humbled to carry on this 50-year legacy of community mental health service.

Services

We integrate a number of schools of psychology and other wisdom traditions with respect for the uniqueness of each individual. We are dedicated to offering hope and healing to clients seeking help with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, isolation, trauma, grief and loss, addictions, work stress, gender identity, sexuality, setting life goals, and pragmatic problem solving.
