Stress management is a major challenge in todayâ€™s unprecedented environment. To help people cope, Catholic Charities counseling department is forming, low-cost, small, virtual support groups of 10 or fewer to assist individuals in finding healthy ways to manage stress.
â€œStress is abundant right now, and itâ€™s something we just canâ€™t get away from. In addition, finances are tight for many, so weâ€™re creating these small, very low-cost groups as an easy, accessible way for people to find help,â€ said Anna Smith, MC, LPC, LISAC, Catholic Charities Senior Program Manager. â€œThe groups will be conducted via Zoom and run by an experienced member of our counseling team.â€
Catholic Charitiesâ€™ professional team also provides individual, virtual counseling for emotional, physical, sexual or verbal abuse; adolescent behavior issues; anger management; anxiety; communication issues; depression; divorce; family conflict; grief and loss; HIV/AIDS; parenting; self-esteem; stress management; and substance abuse.
If you are interested in the group sessions, please call the counseling team at 602-749-4405 for more information on availability and cost.
If you are interested in individual, virtual counseling sessions, costs are based on a sliding scale for individuals paying by credit card or are covered by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), the stateâ€™s Medicaid agency. Appointments for individuals can also be made by calling 602-749-4405.
