Listening with compassion and offering clinical expertise for navigating struggles affecting daily life
Individual and Group Therapy
We offer group and individual therapy and spiritual direction for local laity, clergy, and religious to help them address and navigate struggles affecting daily life. Outpatient therapy is conducted by our staff of competent and experienced licensed psychologists, social workers, and professional counselors who understand the values and concerns of Catholic clergy, religious, and laypeople.
Regular individual therapy sessions with a licensed therapist address both short-term needs and more complex struggles. Individual therapy begins with an initial interview to review and assess the client’s concerns. At the conclusion of the evaluative interview(s), a treatment plan is developed that assists the client in defining and achieving their goal(s). Clients may be referred for comprehensive evaluations, ancillary and/or more intensive treatment services if necessary.
Group therapy with other clients, facilitated by a therapist, provides a supportive environment for making change. This safe environment in which a person is allowed and encouraged to be their authentic self can be a potent venue for change, growth, and healing. It provides a valuable opportunity to hear and incorporate objective feedback about how they are perceived, and to learn healthier and more optimal ways of relating.
