Authentic Therapeutic Care Informed and Guided by Catholicism 


Novare, “to make new” in Latin, derives its deeper meaning from Revelations 21:5 "Behold, I make all things new." Catholic applied psychotherapy that reflects the beauty and truth of our Catholic faith helps make all things new for those who are suffering.

While we wait in confident hope for Christ to make all things new at the end of time, we also believe that He wants to bring this newness now to those who live imprisoned by the effects of trauma, anxiety, depression, shame, abuse, and betrayal. The weight and entanglement of these conditions leaves many without a true experience of hope and feeling alone.

At Novare Counseling Center, we recognize the need for a true therapeutic encounter with a professional who embodies compassion, competency, truth, and authenticity. The essential disposition as Catholic counselors is that we first turn to the Lord to discover our own identities.

Furthermore, we intentionally live out relationships of vulnerability and charity with one another so that we bring a more true therapeutic presence to those we serve. We recognize that we, like our clients, need to experience a deep belonging within the body of Christ.

We are multidisciplinary with specialities in marriage counseling, child therapy, trauma therapy, faith related issues, depression, anxiety, seminary and religious order assessments, and anger management. We are able to serve the needs of the entire family.

Although having diverse professional and theoretical backgrounds, we place an emphasis on therapy approaches that are depth oriented, experiential, and which place a high value on the therapy relationship. We are effective in selecting which treatments will best serve the client.
