Watercourse Counseling Center, is a nonprofit organization established in 1999, with a mission to strengthen our Minneapolis community by supporting people in the journey toward emotional well-being. We strive to improve community wellness by:

  • creating equitable access to mental health services,
  • bringing services into the community (community, office & school-based settings),
  • building partnerships to address community issues impacted by mental health,
  • mentoring mental health trainees.

We operate from a fundamental belief in the power of relationship in life and in healing. Our approach relies on collaboration in which each person’s abilities, sense of self, and life experiences are valued and utilized.


[Our school-based therapist] worked to get my son engaged and comfortable, mixing work and play, getting him to open up. This has been a positive experience from the very first session. Thanks for helping my son 'turn it around' so beautifully. Having a genuine, warm therapist with a sense of humor is such a blessing!!
