Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. We offer candidate assessments for dioceses and religious communities nationwide. They are integrated psychological and spiritual assessments by a one- two- or three-person team. You will receive detailed verbal and written feedback to help with the discernment process. Assessments are available in our office, as well as our partners in Kentucky and Maryland.
Call us at 314-909-4620 and ask to speak with our director, Dr. Rob Furey. We will assist you in assessing the situation and determining next steps. Our evaluation program often is helpful in identifying what the problems might be and how to proceed.
Clients are typically referred by their (arch)diocese or religious community. Ministerial Outreach (outpatient) clients may be referred or self-refer. If you feel you would benefit from our programs, we encourage you to talk with your superior or vicar or to call us at 314-909-4620.
Our center serves Catholic clergy, men and women religious, seminarians and candidates.
Individuals come to us for many reasons, and often have a dual diagnosis. Challenges include addictions, depression and other mood disorders, stress, burnout, boundaries, trauma and more.
Our program accepts both men and women; we do not have a separate program for women. If you would like to discuss a referral of a woman religious to Saint Luke Consultation Center, please call our director, Dr. Rob Furey, at 314-909-4620.
Our partner, Saint Luke Institute, offers a residential program for women only, Talitha-Life. Women have separate living and recreational areas, and most therapy is with women only, although larger therapy groups typically include men and women, as do meals and liturgies. For details, call SLI at
Our treatment programs are primarily for Catholic clergy and religious. On some occasions we may serve a minister of another faith, more commonly for evaluation and, at times when appropriate, for intensive outpatient treatment.
St. Louis Consultation Center offers experienced, quality care in a cost effective intensive outpatient setting.
Intensive outpatient care offers a cost effective treatment option that provides the structure, intensity and support for a client to do deep work, while at the same time allowing the opportunity to practice new found skills in an outside setting. Learn more here or call us at 314-909-4620.
Clients consistently underestimate the challenges of transitioning from an intensive treatment program to what comes next in their life. Our continuing care program offers a community of care to assist with the challenges of this transition. Learn more.
