Finding a Counselor

I don’t recommend certain counselors to everyone for everything because there are too many factors to consider. Instead, please visit PsychologyToday and use their Find a Therapist tool. You can filter results based on 

  • Location / range
  • Insurance providers accepted
  • Issue
  • Style of therapy
  • And other factors

While one person may love a certain counselor, another person may have a personality clash. Their bios can tell you a lot about their style. So I encourage you to scroll through several options and see who seems like a nice fit.

The Archdiocese of Kansas City Kansas also has a list. From that website: The following counselors / psychotherapists have solemnly pledged that they are Catholics who follow the teachings and authority of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. They have firmly pledged to follow Catholic teachings in their lives, and to encourage their Catholic clients to live these out as well. This listing is not an endorsement of their counseling methods or effectiveness. You can find that list here.

Local Mental Health Providers

Though some providers specialize in a certain issue (such as grief or addiction), most offer a variety of services for different issues because many issues are intertwined.
