Individual Counseling

Our outpatient therapy can help with everything, from managing your emotions to managing severe and persistent mental illnesses. Located at our Richfield, Golden Valley, and Brooklyn Center sites five days a week, our outpatient therapy teams are trauma-informed to best empower everyone to live an emotionally healthy life.­

What is outpatient therapy? Is it for me?

Outpatient therapy is the “traditional” arrangement where you go to your therapist on a regular basis. It’s for a wide range of people with a wide range of needs: Our outpatient teams currently have clients from as young as two to as old as 95. It’s helpful for anything from feeling “stuck” in life, to handling something bad that happened suddenly, to severe and ongoing mental illness.

Outpatient therapy isn’t just for individuals, either -- it’s for families and couples, too. Our clinical team provides individual, family and couples therapy at all three of our locations. We include family therapy as a component of our adolescent Day Treatment program as well.

If you’re still not sure if outpatient therapy is right for you, you can contact us at (763) 746-2411 or info@headway.org with any questions you have.

What kinds of therapy do you do in outpatient therapy?

Our therapists are trained in a variety of kinds, or “modalities,” of therapy, including talk therapy, play therapy, strengths-based therapy, mindfulness, and many more. All our therapists are trauma-informed as well. Your therapist will determine the best modality to suit you and your needs.

Where are your outpatient locations?

We offer outpatient therapy at our Richfield, Golden Valley, and Brooklyn Center locations. You can find more about them here.

How do I get started?

You can contact us (763) 746-2411 to talk with our new client experience team, ask any questions you may have, and get set up with your first appointment.

I’ve never been to therapy before -- what is it going to be like?

It’s normal to find therapy a bit intimidating, especially if you’ve never gone before. It’s a deeply personal thing, often begun because something has happened to push you across the line from “I can deal with this on my own” to “I need help to handle this,” and that event is frequently adverse or traumatic in itself.

To help ease the process of getting started, we’ve streamlined our intake process and taken away the typical introductory packet of personal questions. Instead, at your first appointment -- called a DA, or diagnostic assessment -- a therapist will have a conversation with you to talk about why you want to begin therapy. After that, they’ll make a recommendation for which of our therapists will be best suited for you and your needs, and our new client experience team will schedule your regular appointments with them.

If you want to know more about what to expect with therapy, don’t be afraid to ask our new client experience team or your therapist questions, either -- they’re here to help you!
