True Thao Counseling Services

Mental health service

Drawing from the founder’s extensive clinical work in the last thirty years in community-based mental health organizations and clients of many ethnics and cultural heritages, True Thao Counseling Services (TTCS) was established in 1997.  With a diverse staff who are well versed in contemporary evidence-based clinical practices, TTCS has been a steady presence in the Twin Cities, committed to serving diverse inner-city clients of all ethnics and cultural backgrounds.

TTCS also has a unique focus on serving clients who are refugees and their descendants.  Drawing from the founder’s own experience as a refugee and extensive clinical work over the last thirty years, TTCS offers a cultural-specific perspective of counseling services that combines contemporary evidence-based clinical practices in the context of the refugees and their descendants’ heritage, traditional values and beliefs to effectively address issues such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and/or issues rise from the integration of a new life in the US.

Our clinicians are trained in contemporary evidence-based clinical practices: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), Managing and Adaptive Practice (MAP), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Positive Parenting Program.
