Helping You Find Peace of Mind

What Sets Us Apart

Hardy & Stephens Counseling Associates is a group practice with a Christian perspective. We are a multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals providing counseling services with integrity and excellence to children, adolescents, adults and families. Our clinicians offer skills in a variety of focus areas and have significant experience in treating depression and anxiety. Treatment objectives are focused on empowering clients toward complete healing by equipping them with tools and information to integrate their physical, mental and spiritual health. Because we strongly believe the deepest healing comes from treating the whole person, body, mind and spirit, all clients are given the option of integrating their spirituality into their counseling experience. If your beliefs differ from the Christian perspective, we will work to identify other resources that may be useful as we journey with you toward complete healing.

For the convenience of our clients we offer day and evening appointments Monday through Friday with limited Saturday appointments available as well.

COUPLE'S/FAMILY COUNSELING

Healthy relationships are vital to our well-being and regardless of what type of relationship you’re in, everyone can benefit from mutual counseling. Pre-marital/marriage/divorce, family conflicts, blended families and custody situations can all be significantly improved through counseling by addressing areas such as old wounds, conflicts, family secrets, and more. Joint counseling works to improve how people interact with one another by developing skills in communication, problem solving and how to recognize and draw on each other’s areas of strength as well as understanding and appreciating each other’s differences.

Coronavirus Notice

The health and safety of our clients and staff is always our number one priority here at Hardy and Stephens Counseling Associates. We are following the recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) to reduce the risk and potential exposure for both our staff and clients. With this in mind, we are transitioning to telehealth sessions in place of in-person counseling sessions to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) for the next couple of weeks.

Video sessions, or telehealth, are covered by your insurance in the same way it would cover face-to-face sessions and they are HIPAA secure. NO downloads are required and it is easy to access using a computer or a smart phone with just a few clicks. Our staff will gladly walk you through connecting to the video platform should you have any questions.

We realize some of you may no longer have health insurance due to a layoff. MNSure has created a special enrollment period for folks to apply for health insurance. This enrollment period is from Mar. 23 – Apr. 21: https://www.mnsure.org/new-customers/enrollment-deadlines/special-enrollment/covid19-sep.jsp

We have also significantly decreased our time of service fee for those who are currently in therapy with one of our providers but have been financially impacted by COVID-19 and need to pay for their sessions out of pocket. We are charging $45 an hour to continue with your therapist or to start seeing a therapist here. The deeply discounted fee is supplemented with money from a our benevolence fund. If you would like to make a donation to the benevolence fund for other clients or potential clients that have been laid off or lost their jobs please let us know.

We also are offering the option of FREE counseling from our interns for those who do not have insurance or any ability to pay to be a blessing to our community.

We know that this Pandemic, as well as the risk factors and potential impact, can exacerbate fear, anxiety and depression for many. We are committed to continuing to provide excellent care through Telehealth services while partnering with you in your therapeutic journey toward hope and healing.
