About the Program

Are you living with depression, addiction, or just too much stress? Anchor, part of Catholic Charities’ free-standing mental health clinic, can help. Tap into our 50-plus years of experience providing professional counseling and supportive guidance for reflection, exploration, and self-improvement.  You can schedule your one-on-one appointment with our licensed professionals when it works best for you.


Licensed mental health professionals at Anchor Mental Health can provide one-on-one counseling to assist you with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Self-esteem
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger management
  • Substance abuse
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Relationship/intimacy
  • Family dynamics
  • Stress management


We accept Amerihealth, Trusted, Medstar, DC Medicaid, Medicare, Optimum (previously United Healthcare), and most CareFirst BlueCross/BlueShield insurance plans. We will verify your insurance coverage once you schedule an initial consultation appointment and provide you with information regarding any co-pays or a deductible you might have.  If we do not accept your insurance or if you don’t have insurance, you can still see one of our therapists and pay the appointment fee ($125/hour). Fees and co-pays are due at the time of service.  We accept Visa and MasterCard.
