This is the front entrance of IHB Counseling Center, serving the American Indian community in Minneapolis and St Paul.

Occasionally, something gets the best of us. Whether it is a feeling of sadness, anger, or the stresses of the last few years in life are adding up and getting you down. These things can affect us in different ways: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Counseling is an excellent way for people to work through issues in a supportive environment. You are not alone, and we are here to help.
