Westminster Counseling Center is a private, nonprofit organization staffed by counselors and guided by a board of directors.
The Westminster Counseling Center integrates the spiritual and psychological dimensions of human experience to promote hope, strength, growth, and inherent self-worth through counseling, education, and mental health awareness for individuals, couples, and families regardless of their ability to pay.
Respect for diversity:
Westminster counselors appreciate and enjoy the rich diversity of people in terms of ethnicity, relationships, education, sexuality, sexual orientation, religion, age and life experience. We do not impose our religious beliefs on others, and we respect your view of the world and your place in it.
Sliding fee scale:
Westminster Counseling Center has an accessible sliding fee scale based on income and general ability to pay. The Center can accept some third-party payments. You and your counselor will discuss the fee at the first visit.
Professional ethics and confidentiality
The Center's counselors conform to accepted psychotherapy standards, ethical codes and Federal and Minnesota state law. All of which protect the privacy and confidentiality of clients. These same standards, codes and laws, require the counselors to report any suspected cases of child neglect or abuse, vulnerable adult abuse, possible harm to others or self-inflicted. All information is treated as highly confidential.
