If you are looking for a down-to-earth Des Moines therapist who integrates interactive exchange, direct feedback, and goal-focused therapy, you’ve come to the right place.

Hello, my name is Sevin Philips. I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist, and I’m the founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Des Moines, Ia. I’m going to give you some information that I think will be very important in deciding if we are the right fit for you, and it’s also just good information for everyone, especially if this is your first time doing something like this.

We specialize in relationship issues. We work with couples and individuals. When couples come in, we create a safe environment, we slow things down, we want to help you get to the bottom of what is really going on between you two. This added understanding and clarity often leads to treating each other better. But most importantly, we’re really good at teaching the skills and tools necessary for you guys to treat each other better and have better communication skills. We’ll do it in session with you and we really encourage you also to take those skills home where it matters most.Everyone who works for our center is old enough and has enough life experience to back up their skillset. We’re direct, interactive, we’re down to earth. We’re active participants helping you in your relationship, much like a relationship coach, we are solution-focused.

We’ll help you develop relationship goals and these goals will inform you if you’re moving in the right direction in your counseling. It also lets us all know when it’s time to end therapy because you’ve achieved your goal and that’s what we want as well.

First step is to give me a call. I’ll handle any question you might have. If everything feels good to you, I’ll have the therapist in Des Moines call you immediately so that you can talk to them. It’s a great way to feel comfortable with the person you’re going to be seeing, and it’s also a chance for us to get to know you a little bit. We might ask why you’re coming in. Also, we’re going to let you know all the times that we’re available, both day and night so you can come in. We usually can see you within 24 to 48 hours.

On the practical side, we’re licensed therapists and if you have any out-of-network coverage through work which you can verify your insurance company does cover out-of-network, we can give you an invoice that might get you some reimbursement. Also, if you have any flex spending or health savings accounts, sometimes clients use those monies to pay for it.

If you haven’t noticed, I have a lot of videos on the website. I encourage you to check it out. You’re probably going to find a relationship issue that you can identify with that’s happening in your relationship right now. You could take some of that advice or suggestions and start using them. It’s also a great way to get to know who we are.
Let me know if I can help you. Thank you.

So, I’ve had what I’ll call “classic” issues with therapy. Until about 18 months ago, I thought that I could just deal with whatever I needed to, without help. Yeah.
