Need to talk or find support? We’re here to help whether or not you have insurance. Face to Face offers counseling for youth ages 11–24. Our counseling team provides individual, family, and couples’ counseling. We can help with depression, anxiety, family issues, friendships and romantic relationships, school and work, sexuality and gender identity, past or current abuse, trauma, grief, and loss, or anything else that is causing you stress.

If you’re talking to a therapist for the first time, you can walk in without an appointment every Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (last appointment starts at 5:00).

For information, please call Dorothee Tshiela at 651-772-5555 or email with additional questions or concerns. If you have work, class, or another conflict on Tuesdays, please contact Dorothee to schedule an intake appointment.

Counseling Hours at Our Clinic:

Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday: 10:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m.

We are currently full and are not able to take new outpatient clients. Youth are welcome to come to walk-in hours on Tuesdays until we have openings.

In-Home Therapy (Intensive Systemic Therapy)

You may be able to see a therapist in your home. Our in-home therapy program (Intensive Systemic Therapy) aims to provide collaborative, wrap-around support to young people and their families through twice-weekly individual and family counseling, and by connecting families with community resources, services, and supports. If you are 11-17 years old, you may be referred to our Intensive Systemic Therapy in-home program through a county children’s mental health case manager. 

Please contact Divine Baker at 651-274-1052 for information or to make a referral.

LGBTQ Support Group

If you’re exploring your sexual or gender identity and you want to talk to other people experiencing the same thing, the LGBTQ Support Group may be for you. The LGBTQ Support Group meets weekly and is dedicated to young people being themselves. Topics discussed in the group include family, relationships, friendships, health, self-esteem, supporting one another, communication, and love.

All group members must complete an intake prior to participation. Call 651-772-5597 for an intake or with questions.


Please download, print off, and bring to your intake appointment with you.
