About the Catholic Psychotherapy Association (CPA)
About ten years ago, two psychologists, a marriage and family therapist and a professional counselor, began meeting together to mutually support each other living out our Catholic faith in our professional work. We prayed the Rosary together, consecrated ourselves to Our Mother of Good Counsel annually at Mass, offered peer supervision for each other, and over time, had other therapists come to join us.
