Westminster Counseling Center is a private, non-profit organization staffed by pastoral counselors and guided by a board of directors. The board includes representatives from Westminster Presbyterian Church and numerous other congregations and organizations throughout the Twin Cities area who have a knowledge, commitment and expertise in the field of pastoral counseling, business operations, nonprofit management and development.
The counseling center had its beginnings in 1975 as a volunteer-staffed outreach ministry of Westminster Presbyterian Church. It opened its doors as Westminster Counseling Center in October 1987. It was formally established on October 22, 1992 as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit with its own articles of incorporation and executive director. The center continues to receive benevolent funding, office space and administrative support from Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Additional congregations, the George Family Foundation, Athwin Foundation, TCF Foundation and individuals provide vital program funding. Contributions to the center are tax-deductible.
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.
