The demand for Christian counseling is literally exploding as more and more people have become disillusioned with secular therapeutic interventions that often omit and sometimes even attack the life of prayer and faith that are so essential to good mental health and ultimate emotional healing. Catholics who are seriously trying to live a faithful Catholic life are presented with particular challenges that our other Christian brethren are not.
For those individuals and families who seek specifically Catholic practitioners, CatholicTherapists.com was conceived.
At CatholicTherapists.com we view the human person as made in the image and likeness of God and take as our model of the perfect human person, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We believe that a good model of mental health must necessarily include the spiritual aspect of the human person and that it is the goal of therapy to re-integrate man as a physical, rational, emotional and spiritual being.
It is only when we review the past in the light of truth that a person is ultimately freed to pursue a happier and healthier future. At CatholicTherapists.com, we believe that in the search for truth we must set as our ultimate goal, union with Truth Himself in order for clients to live the full and abundant life that God intends for them and to become the persons that God created them to be.
The primary objective of CatholicTherapists.com is to provide referrals to qualified psychotherapists and mental health professionals who are faithful to the magisterium of the Roman Catholic church and who integrate the truths of the faith in the therapeutic process. In addition, CatholicTherapists.com provides relevant information on various topics related to mental and emotional health. There are articles, book reviews and recommendations and a calendar of events that are of interest to the mental health community as well as to those seeking emotional support and education.
Please browse our site for articles and books, news and events all from an authentically Catholic perspective you can trust.
