Northland Counseling Center

International Falls

Our community mental health center has been providing services to the citizens of Koochiching County and surrounding area, since 1959.

Our Mission is Promoting Hope and Recovery Through Mutual Respect,

Trust and Empowerment.


Northland Counseling Center in International Falls is in the process of building a new facility, necessary for continued growth and service delivery to Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, and surrounding counties. The project is expected to be completed in February of 2023 and we are eager to see this state of the art facility will enhance mental health services.

Thank you for your support of Northland Counseling Center and mental health care. If you would like to make a donation to help support the new building, click HERE

Mental Health Services

We currently provide a broad range of safe and effective, outpatient mental health services, including: assessment, evaluations, and testing; individual, couples, family, and group therapy for the general public; as well as specialized services for individuals with serious and persistent mental health issues.

One of the advantages to services provided by a Rule 29 Community Mental Health Center is our important interdisciplinary case consultation model that requires clinicians to obtain feedback and suggestions from other professionals within the agency on each new case and for ongoing complex cases. All services are confidential.
