ST. JOSEPH'S COUNSELING

...counseling and educating families, children and individuals

 

About St. Joseph's Counseling, Support and Education Program  The primary purpose of the Counseling, Support & Education Program is to provide a timely response to families, children and individuals, referred through their parish or parish school, who are seeking short-term professional help within the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.

St. Joseph’s Counseling Center has been providing professional outpatient counseling services within the Archdiocese since 1990.  We adhere to the principles of Catholic Social Teaching which proclaim that human life is sacred and the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society; marriage and family are the central social institutions that must be strengthened; every person has a fundamental right to life and those things required for human dignity and corresponding to those rights are duties and responsibilities to one another, our families and the larger society.

We offer confidential counseling services to individuals, groups, families and children in the context of the Catholic tradition. These individuals are provided opportunities for therapeutic change and growth in an atmosphere of acceptance and caring.
