St. Paul, the capital of Minnesota, is the second most populated city in the state, with close to 300,000 people in the city, and around 3.5 million in the metropolitan area. The metropolitan area is known as the Twin Cities, since St. Paul is adjacent to Minneapolis. St. Paul actually started as a tavern, which was owned by Pierre Parrant, but people called him Pig's Eye, because he had one eye that was blind.1 The area grew to more than the selling of liquor, it grew into a large trading outpost known as Pig's Eye Landing. There were Native Americans, Europeans and American soldiers who lived close by. The city actually is situated between the Mississippi River and the Minnesota River, growing into a large transportation city which was great for trading. The city incorporated in mid 1800s, becoming the state capital at that time.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in St Paul, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around St Paul may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local St Paul public health department.
