"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad."

(Psalm 118:24)

  • “It was reassuring to have our counselor lead us in prayer. There should be counselors like this available at every parish across the country.”
  • “Catholic counseling has been a true blessing for me!!”
  • “My counselor was very patient, kind, and understanding—an overall great person. I would recommend him to anyone seeking assistance.”
  • "Knowing my counselor is a practicing Catholic, living a life in union with the Church, gives me ease and reduces my stress because I know the advice will be sound."
  • "Counseling has helped me with my anxiety issues and gave me hope for my success in the workplace as well as for future relationships."
  • “This service is a great way to extend the ministry of the church to a larger flock in a caring supportive way.”

“Rejoice Counseling Apostolate has been a safe place for me, because I believe it is a place where I can be heard by a kind and compassionate counselor and known as I truly am in Christ and that I truly belong to Christ and His Church. The ministry of listening has been and is very healing to me and it moves me to be truly present to another by simply listening.”

  • “I am at ease with my counselor because he shares my faith. Not only can he point out relevant issues in my life, he can also show how God is present and working in my life. I find more hope in sessions because the counselor combines sound techniques with prayer.”
  • “This service is a great way to extend the ministry of the church to a larger flock in a caring supportive way.”
  • “My experience with Catholic counseling has deeply improved my life in so many ways. Unlike previous secular counselors, I do not walk out of a session needing to discern whether the words or direction given are in line with the Church. Knowing my counselor is a practicing Catholic, living a life in union with the Church, gives me ease and reduces my stress in and of itself because I know the advice will be sound. It enables me to work on my real issues while not having to justify my beliefs. While other counselors are “open” to treating all people from different religions, from my experience, it often became a conversation on how to adapt to the world around me. Catholic counseling infuses theology and psychology, which reaches deeper…to the depths of my soul. It includes God in a much-needed conversation about me and my purpose in life. It sheds God’s truth in my dark areas, namely my depression and anxiety.”
  • “The counseling I received at Rejoice Counseling Apostolate proved to be extremely fruitful. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for an integrative, faith-based approach to counseling.”
  • "I wasn't quite sure what to expect from seeing a counselor, but I can say with great confidence that our Catholic counselor not only listened to us, but always gave us tools to continue working on our marriage. For that, I will always be thankful."
  • "My counselor was kind and compassionate, very insightful and I found it comforting and reassuring that he brought all my concerns to prayer at the beginning and end of our sessions."
  • "The counselor helped me through a time in my life when I needed a guiding light and she helped me come out of a difficult time."

"Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope."

(1 Peter 3:15)

  • "Our Catholic faith allows us to find meaning and direction as we cope with the many issues that life presents. Just exactly how to connect the very real situations of life, the teachings of Our Lord, and practical advice is, however, not always extremely clear. That's where a good counselor can really help. Being able to speak to a trained and faith-filled professional can often be the very heart of the life direction that we are seeking... I highly recommend to you the counselors of Rejoice Counseling." -Fr. Mario Arroyo, Pastor, St. Cyril of Alexandria, Houston, TX
