Diocese of St. Petersburg Highlighted Resources

Safe Haven Counseling Referral List

Safe Haven Counseling Referral List


The following list of mental health professionals include men and women who may or may not be Catholic, but would be respectful of the Church’s teachings on Chastity based on a phone interview. Many of them are certified sexual addiction therapists (CSAT) through the international institute for trauma and addiction professionals (IITAP). Inclusion on this list does not constitute a Diocesan recommendation of any of the providers and is simply a resource. Some counselors on this list on not within the Diocese of St. Petersburg but they are willing to see people from our area and two will work through Telehelp, or HIPPA compliant video chat.
