The Counseling Services program provides individual, couple and family counseling, as well as workshops/presentations for men, women and children. These services are provided by licensed clinicians who hold Master’s degrees and a variety of state licenses and credentials. These include marriage and family therapists, clinical social workers, and professional counselors. Bilingual staff members are available to meet a growing need for Spanish language counseling in the community.
The counseling staff of Catholic Charities is able to provide support, guidance, and insight for:
Couples, premarital and marriage counseling to strengthen relationships
Individuals who have experienced loss, trauma, or life changes

While there is a fee for the Counseling services, we do work on a sliding scale. The sliding scale fees are based off a family’s income and will be assessed when making an appointment. We are also able to accept some insurance plans.
The program serves a diverse population of children, families, singles and couples regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic status.
