What You Need To Know.
Where is the counseling center located?
We are located at 3239 Oak Ridge Loop East, West Fargo, in the Oak Ridge Office Park. Our office is located on a loop road directly behind Faith Hands Daycare and Maximum Performance Gym.
You can enter the business loop from three directions. We recommend the following path (driving West on 32nd Avenue):
- Turn left on 6th Street East (at the Oak Ridge sign) and take the first right on Oak Ridge Way (ignore any construction signs), which will bring you to the business loop.
- Take the second left turn on Oak Ridge Loop. Our building is at the end of the road.
You may also enter the loop:
- Turn between Maximum Performance Gym and Faith Hands, taking the road between into the loop.
- Turn left at the corner of 32nd Avenue and 4th Street East, at the stop light, and then take your first left turn. This road will take you to the loop as well.
You will see a large wood sign on the front of the building. Review or print map here.
Where should I park?
Parking is available in front of the building.
You may park on the loop street as well.
The front parking spaces are reserved for customers, so spots will clear at the top of each hour.
What should I bring?
Well, that depends on which path you choose to complete the intake process.
If you complete your digital intake form online, you don’t need to bring anything. Simply arrive at the time of your appointment. To begin the digital process, CLICK HERE.
Not comfortable with online registration? No problem. If you have access to a printer, please bring your completed paper intake form CLICK HERE and any information you would like to share with your counselor. If using insurance, please remember to bring your insurance card and a picture ID.
