St. Raphael Counseling is a Mission to the Church. Our goal is to change our culture by bringing together the teachings of the Catholic Church and the very best in clinical care


Living out our vocations as Christians is incredibly challenging. Regardless of whether it is in your mission in family, work, or ministry, truly applying the Church' teaching brings unique challenges. Our mission is to help you find growth and fulfillment within your mission. Together with your therapist, you can find healing in your life as well and come one step closer to the saint God is calling you to be.

“Don’t let your life be sterile.  Be useful.  Blaze a trail.  Shine forth with the light of your faith and your love.”

 -St. Josemaria Escriva




The story of St. Raphael is a Scriptural illustration of God sending His messenger to lead and heal a young man, named Tobias, as he made a very important journey in his life. Together they confront nature and evil in a manner directed towards the will of God and the good of the young man. It is a story of family, of vocation, of pilgrimage. God calls each of us to seek His help as we face similar challenges. For this reason we have chosen St. Raphael the Archangel as the patron of our practice. He represents the power of God's presence in our world-and especially in our individual needs. You may be facing family crises, or mental health challenges, disabilities, addiction, vocational anxiety, etc. We are here to help as ministers of God's grace and as professional counselors.
