Our Free and Low-Cost Counseling Programs in New York Are Here for You

Anxiety, depression and conflicts over marital issues, raising children, caring for the elderly and losing a loved one can make it hard to cope.  Catholic Charities free and low-cost counseling services are here to help.

We offer individual, couples and family counseling that assist with life’s challenges.  

Local parishes may also be able to intervene to access help.  For example, Our Parish Counseling Network provides parishioners with short-term professional counseling at convenient locations throughout the Archdiocese of New York

  • Parishioners are eligible for up to 6 counseling sessions
  • Fee per session is just a $10 copay.
  • If additional counseling is needed, parishioners will be referred to counseling practioners or treatments centers outside the Network.

If short term counseling is not appropriate due to severe or persistent mental illness or other causes, referrals will be made for more appropriate treatments – including therapists, hospitals and clinics –  outside the Network

Speak with your pastor for more information about our Parish Counseling Network

  • He or a designated staff person can make referrals for affordable professional counseling simply by calling 866-962-7487.
