Why Do We Do It?

Pope John Paul II called mental health professionals to pursue their training in an atmosphere of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. This means that a Catholic Psychologist is a person trained in the psychological sciences as well as philosophy and theology. A Catholic Psychologist believes that all truths are derived from the Source of truth, and therefore cannot contradict each other.


The integration of a Catholic understanding of the human person and sound principles of psychology creates an environment where your individual dignity is respected while proven methods of therapeutic intervention are applied.

Meet Dr. Bryan Violette, Psy.D.

Dr. Bryan Violette recently completed his doctoral degree in clinical psychology at the Institute for the Psychological Sciences. His dissertation research focused largely on developing a specific psychotherapy designed to address the struggles of contemporary men within the framework of a Catholic anthropology.


Dr. Violette first discerned his call to study psychology while studying theology at Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, CT, not far from his hometown of Wethersfield. Combined with his volunteer work serving the underprivileged in local impoverished areas and learning firsthand how devastating mental illness can be to family life, Dr. Bryan was impassioned to attend to the growing need for professional care from a Catholic standpoint.


Dr. Bryan is currently working as a Psychology Resident for the CatholicPsych Institute in the recently opened satellite office on Enders Island. He is available to speak on a variety of topics, including:


  • Chastity: Filling the heart's desire

  • Relationships and the psychological complementarity
    between men and women

  • Marriage: Sacramentality and sex

  • Motherhood, fatherhood, and happy parenting

  • Psychology and the mystical life

  • The Catholic answer to depression and anxiety
