Pastoral Counseling Center of Santa Fe

 Walking the Path to Health and Wholeness

Clients who filled out anonymous survey:

Overall, Pastoral Counseling Center (PCC) clients strongly agreed that they worked well with their therapist, that their therapist had a sincere concern for their welfare, and that they would recommend our services.  In fact, on a 1-5 scale, where 5 is the strongest agreement, PCC averaged scores over 4.9 on these items. 
Participants in Graceful Aging, anonymous survey data: 
There were meaningful and significant improvements on all outcome measures. As examples, knowledge or resources increased by 17% and the desire for making decisions based on quality of life and personal values increased by 15%” 
Summarized by Executive Director, 2015

Virtually all communities have sought to assist their members in difficult times using cultural and religious beliefs.  In a 1996 USA Today survey, almost 80% of Americans felt that faith could help in recovery from illness. But not all of our clients seek religious or spiritual-based counseling and such issues are specifically addressed only when the client brings them up, which occurs in about 20% of our cases
