Living Waters Counseling A Local Resource

Jan 30, 2022 | Community

This can be a difficult time of the year for many people. The holidays are over, winter has set in with its effects on us both internally and externally, and extended times apart from friends and family under current conditions can make things seem even harder. 

Many individuals and even organizations are feeling the effects of long-term confinement and social distancing. Others are grappling with difficult choices regarding vaccinations and family arrangements. Still others are facing challenges with school schedules and trying to achieve a comfortable work/life balance. For parishioners, these issues can give rise to anxiety and stressful family situations; many may be searching for counseling that has a spiritual component so necessary for an integrated life. 

Living Waters Therapeutic Catholic Counseling, one of the only Catholic-centric practices on Long Island, offers individual, couple and family therapy for adults, teens and children presented in a uniquely Catholic framework. Living Waters led a parish retreat at St. Francis in the fall, and they continue to work with members of St. Francis and at St. Elizabeth in Melville, along with clients from other congregations. Founder Carol Rubano, LCSW-R, ACSW is available to speak with parishioners about free, private counseling with licensed therapists on staff to help anyone who would benefit from talking to someone about their concerns in these challenging times. She leads a caring staff of counselors that spans a range of specialties to ensure clients are paired with someone expressly qualified to address their personal concerns from a pastoral perspective. With social distancing still in effect, Living Waters currently offers Telemental Health services online, with access via a secure platform. 

Many have benefited from the unique approach of therapeutic support within the context of faith. Living Waters provides individualized attention using integrated therapies including psychotherapy, pastoral counseling, and contemplative prayer. It is possible to discover a sense of peace while drawing close to God’s healing love.
