Maria Droste Counseling Services

Services Provided: 

The Sisters of the Good Shepherd established Maria Droste Counseling Services in 1982. They named the organization after the Good Shepherd Sister Maria Droste because she was known for her gift of consolation.

Here staff and volunteers share a commitment to creating a supportive, safe and accepting therapeutic environment. This allows every client an opportunity to engage in a process of self-understanding that leads to growth and change.

Staff is comprised largely of licensed professional volunteers. This includes psychologists, clinical social workers and mental health counselors. Already they have provided excellent, affordable mental-health care to thousands of New Yorkers throughout the metropolitan area.
