Caritas Counseling Center
Baltimore and Washington, D.C., Metro
We are a professional counseling center with two locations (Lutherville and Silver Spring, MD) providing outpatient therapy, candidate assessments, and spiritual direction for Catholic clergy, religious, and laity.
Caritas Counseling Center’s staff can help individuals move towards recovery and healing from challenges such as anxiety, stress and burnout, body image and eating issues, addictions, depression and other mood disorders, grief and loss, anger management, history of trauma, and relationship, boundary, and sexual behavior problems. Our services include:
- Candidate assessments for men and women discerning a call to priesthood, religious life, and the permanent diaconate.
- Individual and group therapy to address both short-term needs and more complex issues
- One-on-one spiritual direction to support ongoing spiritual development
- Education, both online and in-person, to support healthy, effective ministry
ADHD Clinic (NEW!)
Caritas Counseling Center offers a comprehensive evaluation for adults experiencing symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Our clinicians and a Caritas-affiliated psychiatrist work closely with clients to track progress and make treatment recommendations based on individual need.
Healthy Life Groups
Our Healthy Life groups focus on a single topic, meet for just 4-7 sessions, and include skill-building and facilitated discussion in a confidential setting. Topics may include stress management, building healthy relationships, and mindfulness skills.
Plan Your Visit
Day and evening appointments are available. To provide the best care possible, we cannot accept walk-ins.
We value your privacy. Our therapists follow the strictest confidentiality principles set forth by Maryland law. We will discuss confidentiality with you on your first visit.
When a diocese or religious congregation entrusts a priest or religious to our care, we are able to provide regular updates about progress with the individual’s informed consent.
We are committed to providing excellent care at a reasonable cost, and will assist our clients with receiving out-of-network coverage.
