Counselor



Hello Holy Spirit Families!

Below are some resources that I hope you will find helpful. This is a minimal list so if you need any additional resources do not hesitate to reach out to me.

I invite you and your student to visit my virtual office for some fun activities, videos and links. There is also a form on there for you to fill out to let me know you would like me to contact you or your student.

In love, Mrs. Chalker

Therapy

If anyone in your family is looking for therapy, a good place to start is with you physician for names and recommendations.

It is also good to check your private insurance list to see who is covered under your insurance plan.

The Archdiocese has a list of counselors/psychotherapists who 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 see the current list by clicking here: Counseling list
