Are You a Psyched Up Catholic?

A small group of Catholic psychology-focused people just started a new blog:!

Ed and Matt are taking the good things (while leaving the bad) from the study of psychology and applying them to our Catholic Faith. This is a noble endeavor, because in large part psychology has been a secular field divorced from religious faith.

psy1I’ve noticed a difficulty in finding or recommending a Catholic psychologist, therapist, or psychiatrist when people have asked me for help (which happens fairly often since I am public about struggles I’ve had with depression, disordered anxieties, and panic attacks). It’s an area we Catholics need to baptize with the light of faith, and that is what Ed and Matt are already doing.

The fact is that there are helpful things to mine out of psychology, ideas and therapies and truths that can be of substantial aid to people in mental distress. These guys at are digging those gems out of the rock and presenting them to us for consideration: check it out!

  1. FYI, our diocese provides individual and family counseling with Catholic counselors on staff. They also refer to outside Catholic and other Christian counselors.

  2. Thanks for spreading the word on this important new endeavor! is also a great resource. The site lists therapists across the USA who are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church. My husband Manuel P. Santos, MD, is a member!
