Hello. My name is Sevin Philips, I’m a licensed therapist and I’m the founder of our center in Boulder. If you’re listening to this video, you’re reaching out for help, which is a really great thing, and I want to commend you for it. I want to tell you also that everyone from time to time in their life needs help; we get stuck, we have the same patterns that continue throughout our life and it brings unhappiness. And it’s okay to reach out and get the help that you need to get out of it.
This is a very unique relationship; it’s different than family or friends. And if you have those kinds of people that you can talk to and they listen to you, that is great. But what makes our relationship really unique is that we are here for you 100%, that’s the nature of our relationship. We have helped hundreds, if not, thousands of people walk through the places in their life that they’re stuck and find a roadmap to getting through it in really healthy ways.
To start off, we’re going to get to know who you are. We’ll probably listen to you; your thoughts, your ideas, your feelings about your life, about the issue that you’re facing. We’re going to ask a lot of questions and be really curious about you, it’s our way of getting to know you and developing trust with one another. Also, when we get to know you and ask these questions, we really explore your issue at a really significant depth that perhaps you’ve never done before. When people do this, I often find that they become self-aware in ways they have not, they understand their issues in really clear and defined ways. And then together, in a very collaborative process, we can move forward and find the right kinds of skills and tools necessary for you to create the kind of change in your life that you would like.
I would recommend going on our website and looking at some of the videos, reading some of the articles, and get to know who we are that way. It’s a great way without having to reach out, you can get a little sense of who we are and the kinds of advice that we give.
And also, a great first step is to reach out on the phone. You can pick up the phone and call one of our happy receptionists, and they can help you find the right therapist that’s closest to your work or your house, and maybe even connect you live on the phone with that person. So you can get to know who they are, tell them a little bit about what’s going on in your life and see if you get a good feeling about them, get to know their personality. I want you to feel good about the therapist you’re seeing, and that’s a great first step.
Also, sometimes people want help paying for therapy, and if you have anything called out-of-network coverage or flex spending through work, sometimes we can give invoices that help you pay for your therapy. We specialize in a solution-focused approach to individual counseling, couples therapy, couples counseling and marriage counseling.
I hope this is helpful, and please reach out if you’d like some help. Thank you.
