St. Francis de Sales




Roman Catholic and Christian Counselors offer faith-based professional counseling services to St. Francis parishioners and as an outreach to our surrounding community. All counselors are licensed by the State of Ohio as Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapist, and combine standard clinical counseling practices with the beliefs, practices, and spirituality of our Christian faith to provide a thorough and Christ-centered approach to healing and wholeness.  Counselors provide services for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families to promote healing, personal growth, loving relationships, and faith-filled lives.


The counseling sessions can take place in person at St. Francis, virtually via Telehealth, or at one of the professional locations of the counselors.  Those interested in inquiring about Christian counseling services are asked to contact the counselors directly using the information provided on the parish website or parish bulletin.


Many health insurances are accepted and reduced fee schedules may be available to those who do not have insurance.


The counselors act also as a resource in the establishment and continuity of parish-based peer support programs and other parish activities.


All counseling services are offered in a confidential and professional manner with the goal of helping individuals and families improve their lives and relationships by strengthening their spiritual, emotional and physical well being.


We pray that God bless the services we offer here and bless you as you continue to grow in a deeper relationship with Christ.
