Client's Story

67-year-old “Ann” was referred to Catholic Charities for assessment and counseling by her pastor.  Because the referral was made in the early stages of the pandemic, there were no face-to-face meeting, but weekly online counseling for three months.  Ann shared her fears and anxieties tht resulted from the pandemic.  Through active listening, empathic response, and other therapeutic intervention, Ann reported an increased ability to cope with these and other stressors.

Once she felt confident in the coping skills she learned through the sessions, Ann informed her counselor that she no longer felt the need for ongoing counseling.

“It was such a relief to have someone to talk to and who understood me.  I didn’t realize that I could have counseling over the phone and thought I would have to deal with all my problems and issues alone because of the pandemic.  I can’t express how grateful I am that there was someone there to listen to me and to offer support and encouragement.”
