NEW Location in Minneapolis!

Family Innovations is excited to announce the opening of a new counseling and training center in Minneapolis.  Located on University of Minnesota property on Washington Avenue, just blocks off of Interstate 35-W, with free parking and a bus stop directly in front of the clinic, it is easily accessible to people living or working in downtown Minneapolis, and in the surrounding communities. With its location on the corner of Washington Avenue and 11th Avenue, just three blocks north of the new US Bank Stadium, near the Depot, and only blocks from the Hennepin County Government Center, it is convenient for commuters coming into or leaving downtown Minneapolis before or after work and for families and individuals living in and around this area.  Early afternoon and evening appointments are available Monday through Thursday and with its close proximity to the campus of the University of Minnesota, it is also conveniently located for U of M students seeking counseling resources.

Family Innovations accepts all major insurances, including Medical Assistance, and looks forward to serving the communities surrounding the downtown area.

Counseling and Training Center

Family Innovations has fully licensed mental health therapists to work with families and children, teenagers, individuals and adults. Additionally, in affiliation with the University of Minnesota, practicum students completing advanced degrees in mental health will also be available to see clients – their work will typically be observed and supported by other very experienced and licensed professionals.
