Hello, my name is Sevin Philips. I’m a licensed therapist and I’m the founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Ann Arbor, MI . I’m going to give you some information that’s going to be important for you in understanding if we are the right therapist for you. In addition, it’s just good information for anybody, especially if you’re new to this sort of thing.
One thing that we do is we specialize in relationships. We work with couples and individuals. When couples come in, we create a safe place without judgment and without blame where you can get to the bottom of what’s really going on between you two. What we find is with this clarity, couples often feel better and begin to treat each other better. But we also teach skills and tools that are necessary to communicate better. We not only do that in session, but we encourage you to do it at home where it matters most.Everybody that I hire has enough life experience to back up their skillset and that’s important for you to know. We are down to earth, interactive, and direct. Much like a coach, we help couples in a very active way, create the relationship you want. Many people find that we are solution-focused.
One of the things that people can do is come in by themselves if they’re wanting to work on their relationship. I’m shocked at how much can happen when one person wants to change, get clear about their relationship, and work on it. Of course, anybody who wants to come in who’s dating and maybe make a different decision in their lives and find that right life partner. We also are specialists in marriage counseling and couples therapy. We work with married and unmarried couples.
Now, a first step would be just to call me. I could hopefully answer any question you have. If everything makes sense to you and feels good, I’ll have the therapist that’s best for you give you a call as soon as possible. What’s really good about that is you can get to know the person you’re going to be seeing. They might ask you a little bit about why you’re coming in, and also, they’re going to tell you all the times that you can see them both day and night so you can come in as soon as possible. We usually can see people within 24 to 48 hours.
On the practical side, we are licensed therapists, so if you have any out-of-network coverage which you can verify with your insurance, we might be able to give you an invoice so that you can get reimbursed. Also, if you have any flex spending or health savings accounts, we sometimes can help you get money from those accounts as well.
If you haven’t noticed, I have a lot of videos and articles on the website. I really encourage you to check that out. You can probably find an issue on there that you can relate to. You could perhaps use some of the suggestions on there in your relationship right now. It is free for the taking. It’s also a great way to get to know the kind of therapists we are.
And, of course, if you want to take the next step, please give me a call. Thank you.
