Looking for a Catholic therapist? Family Foundations Institute is pleased to provide a directory of affiliated mental health practitioners in the province of Ontario. FFI Affiliates hold valid credentials with their professional Colleges and Associations and subscribe to FFI principles.

The Catholic Church teaches that human persons are composed of body, mind and spiritual soul, made for relationship with others and governed by natural law. In order to be mentally well, our thoughts, emotions, and actions need to be under the guidance of our reason and will and directed towards our ultimate goal, which is happiness with God in heaven.
Science is the study of creation, both in nature and in human behaviour and society. The Church teaches that since God is the author of creation, there is a friendship between faith and science and that scientific study can lead to holiness. Psychological research conducted by those of faith and good will can help us overcome barriers that stand in the way of hope, healing, and happiness.
It was Socrates who said that “the unexamined life is not worth living.” We can use reason to make sense of how we make sense of our world. Self-reflection and self-awareness can lead to a more intentional way of living and contribute to human flourishing, loving relationships, and a more virtuous life. Here, you’ll find help for your journey of self-discovery that is fully in accord with our Catholic faith.
