Counseling Services

Catholic Charities of Owensboro offers a unique counseling assistance program called CAP (Counseling Assistance Program). Through CAP, Catholic Charities collaborates with several counselors across western Kentucky who offer their services at a reduced rate for parishioners of the Diocese of Owensboro.

Catholic Charities and many parishes supplement this discounted rate for up to 6 counseling sessions. Each therapist in the CAP program agrees to practice within the teachings of the Catholic Church and is qualified to offer counseling for individuals, couples, and/or family issues.

Here’s how CAP works:
If a parishioner cannot bill insurance or Medicare, they can simply contact a counselor from the list below and present a proof of parish membership to be eligible for CAP. (For example, a parish directory photo, tithing envelope, etc). The counselor submits a form to Catholic Charities, and Catholic Charities then requests reimbursement from the parish. The fee is usually split equally between the client, Catholic Charities, and the parish. ***Confidentiality is assured.

CAP is structured to provide parishioners with short-term counseling. If extended treatment is needed, counselors will provide an assessment and referral to appropriate mental health resources.

If you have further questions, please contact Aimee Greer at 270-683-1545.
