 St. Louis Park, MN –May 6, 2024: CARE Counseling, a top mental health outpatient clinic in the Twin Cities founded in 2014, proudly announced the grand opening of its tenth location to expand mental health services in Minnesota. With a vision of improving mental health outcomes and access to care, their Woodbury/Lake Elmo location marks a significant milestone in CARE Counseling’s mission of “Building a Community to Strengthen the Community” during their 10th anniversary year of providing mental health services. 

“At CARE Counseling, we aim to be more accessible for the community with same week availability and foster better client experiences within mental health care,” said John Hutchinson, Chief Operating Officer at CARE Counseling. “With this tenth location, we will continue to prioritize the well-being of our clients and clinicians, to promote mental wellness in our communities.” 

Since starting CARE Counseling 10 years ago, co-founders Dr. Andrea Hutchinson and John Hutchinson have championed CARE’s growth to continue to meet the growing need for mental health services in Minnesota. Upon opening in 2014, CARE has grown from one to now ten locations, two to over 300 team members. CARE is intentional with scheduling so that CARE can ensure same week availability for mental health care. This has significantly impacted the local community by providing accessibility to high quality services for mental health care at a time when the average wait to begin therapy is six to eight weeks. 

“At CARE, we are committed to hiring, training, and retaining exceptional mental health providers to provide high quality care to our community,” said Dr. Andrea Hutchinson, Chief Executive Officer at CARE Counseling. “We provide best in class professional training on evidence based clinical practice to enhance client outcomes and effectively support the community. We look forward to serving the Woodbury community at our tenth location.” 

The need for mental health services continues to be high, and CARE has expanded to meet those needs. The new Woodbury/Lake Elmo location begins serving the surrounding area on May 6, 2024. CARE Counseling providers are available for in-person (outpatient) and telehealth therapy. All are welcome to stop by and visit at: 8980 Hudson Boulevard North, Lake Elmo, MN.
