Community Counseling

Now more than ever, people impacted by poverty who are among the most vulnerable in our communities must be able to rely on the services of Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities will continues to provide community counseling for both current and new clients. Our therapists are here to serve and will be available for scheduled sessions during these uncertain times of understandable concern over the spread of COVID-19. 
Therapists will be able to provide services in person.  We ask that you follow these guidelines to prevent the spread of disease:
  • Call to reschedule your appointment and stay home when you are sick with fever, cough, chills, or other flu-like symptoms.
  • Before and after your appointment, wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain social distance of 3-6 feet with your therapist and others in the office.
  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
You may request your therapist to conduct your therapy session over the phone or via videoconference.  We will accommodate your request when appropriate and as we have the capacity.


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 Behavioral Health/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.
