Catholic Pastoral Counseling Overview

If you are a faithful, practicing Catholic who is also either a professional psychologist, clinical social worker, counselor, marriage and family therapist or other state-licensed mental health professional, the Holy Apostles fully online Graduate Certificate in Catholic Pastoral Counseling can help you meet this growing, unmet need for Catholic-integrated mental health services.

Thirty-Four percent of Catholics in the US would prefer to receive counseling from a therapist who was knowledgeable about their faith and knew how to employ faith-based techniques in their clinical work. That’s almost 25 million potential consumers of mental health services whose needs are not being met by available community and church-based mental health resources.
