Preventative measures to safeguard our clients, volunteers and staff are in place at all Catholic Charities programs. During the coronavirus pandemic, counselors are providing counseling via secure telephone or video conferencing, and are able to serve residents from throughout our diocese. 

At Catholic Charities' Family Services, we provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. We integrate the Catholic faith into our services, which are available to people all faiths and backgrounds. We are committed to empowering clients to overcome emotional and/or behavioral obstacles that prevent them from realizing their full God-given potential. Our staff members bring compassion and diverse clinical experience to the services they provide our clients. We offer counseling services at a variety of locations in the Diocese of Arlington, including 17 parishes.
