Acacia has a podcast hosted by Maddie Coulter, a therapist on the Acacia Minneapolis team!
The podcast is a user’s guide to mental health, exploring topics of mental illness, personal experiences, and professional takes from Acacia providers. If you need to process the meaning of shame, learn some mindfulness techniques, or explore intersectionality – this could be the podcast for you!

State law protects the confidentiality of communications between a client and a therapist.
There are notable exceptions:
Fret not, there are several options!
Good news, you do not have to be a college student to start therapy at Acacia!
Yes, we are close to college campuses, as that is our mission – to serve and engage the college community, which can include you!
For college students in the University of California system (UCSB, UCSD, etc.), there is sometimes a requirement to have the on-campus counseling services provide a referral for insurance to be billed.
If you plan to use your university’s insurance (UCSHIP), you will need to make sure to have a referral before you start services to avoid paying for insurance costs – as all costs are a client’s responsibility.
With the proper referral on file at Acacia, you are only responsible for copays
Secondary insurance refers to an insurance plan (for UC students, “UCSHIP”) that is essentially trumped by any Primary insurance plan you may be on as well. This is common for those on a parent’s or spouse’s plan.
If we are unaware of a primary insurance plan prior to sessions, your coverage may be blocked by the primary insurance company. When this happens, your balance at Acacia will rise.
If you have a primary insurance that requires that you notify them before using another insurance plan, you can call the customer phone line to “coordinate your benefits with Acacia”.
We strive to provide you with the best fit!
Before we schedule you, we take the initial information you have given us and matched you with providers with experience working in the areas you’re hoping to explore.
It’s important that if something in therapy isn’t quite working for you, as it will inform the provider of where they can adjust. If you believe it’s not changing, speak with your office’s front desk team and they can find a better match!
