Northwest Rochester counseling center to double in size – Reuters


ROCHESTER — After about five years in its current dig, a Med City counseling center has more than doubled the size of its building.

Highland Meadows Counseling Center, Inc.

has outgrown its space at 3737 40th Ave. NW, the former Boomers Lounge.

It is located on a cul-de-sac, behind the Widseth complex along West Circle Drive.

“We’re adding about 5,000 square feet of space,” the co-owner said. Mandy Hyland. “We are expanding some of our programs and adding a few therapists, including a medical care provider.”

The center has 15 therapists. A medical provider joins in May.

Hyland owns the center with Heather Cruz. Highland Meadows moved into the 40th Avenue complex in 2017, having outgrown its original office on Greenview Drive.

Highland Meadows offers a variety of therapy services for depression, anxiety, abuse, anger management, grief and more, as well as issues related to relationships, divorce, trauma and drug addiction.

Construction is underway to add more offices and conference room space for group therapy. Hyland hopes the work will be completed by mid-summer, which would be in time for Highland Meadows’ 10th anniversary celebration.

Hyland founded the counseling center with Sarah Stelznersince deceased.

The 18-year-old building was originally occupied by Boomers Lounge, which closed in 2016 after a 12-year run.
