About Our Program


Some problems in life are too difficult to handle alone. When problems like tensions in a marriage, behavioral issues with a teen or pre-teen, depression, anxiety or daily stressors overwhelm your life – it’s good to know you don’t have to walk that road alone. Counseling helps people to understand their personal needs, focus on the cause of their problems and determine ways to resolve or cope with those issues.

Catholic Charities Counseling Services is a State certified outpatient behavioral health clinic providing accessible, culturally competent, high quality mental health services for individuals, families, children and couples of all faiths.  All therapists are licensed to practice in the state of Wisconsin and bilingual therapists are available at all of our sites.  We serve adults, children and families who suffer from emotional distress.

The agency recognizes the added challenges of people living in poverty and accepts patients who do not have any means to pay, as well as those with limited resources, on a sliding fee scale adjusted to an individual's or family's size and financial situation. Additionally, third party insurance payers, Medicare and Medicaid are accepted.

Symptoms of Depression

  • fatigue and decreased energy
  • insomnia or excessive sleeping
  • irritability or restlessness
  • loss of interest in activities or hobbies that were once pleasurable
  • overeating or loss of appetite
  • persistent feelings of sadness, anxious or 'empty' feeling
  • feelings of hopelessness
  • feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
  • difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and/or making decisions
  • thoughts of suicide

If you or a loved one are experiencing some of these symptoms, then it is time to contact Catholic Charities to make an appointment for help.

 

MEET MARIA

 

You may imagine the hope and excitement that a new immigrant feels when they arrive in the U.S.  It’s true, there is hope, but there is also sadness for the loss of family, culture, and country.  Maria moved to the U.S. with her husband and daughter leaving behind her parents and friends. When the pandemic hit, Maria’s worries grew for everyone she loved. She could see her daughter struggling to adjust to online schooling and separation from friends. Maria desperately missed the support of her parents and was also incredibly worried for their health and safety. 

Maria’s fear and sense of isolation affected everything – she was unable to sleep and couldn’t share her feelings with her husband. A friend recommended that she call Catholic Charities to speak with one of our bilingual, Spanish-speaking therapists, and Maria found the support she needed. By speaking with a therapist fluent in her first language, Maria was able to fully express all the emotions building up inside her. “Therapy helps me reconnect with myself and my family and to keep going. I’m able to rediscover my strengths and values,” said Maria.
