Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I’m a Licensed Therapist and I’m the Founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Fayetteville, NC. I’m here to give you some information that’s going to help you decide if we are the right therapists for you. And if we’re not, it’s going to be some good information that I think everyone should know before they do counseling.
First of all, we specialize in relationship issues – that’s what we do best, individuals and couples. When couples come in, we’re going to create a safe environment, help you get to the bottom of what’s really going on between you two. I often find that when clients have a deeper understanding of one another, it’s easier to be more respectful and to move forward in healthy ways.
What we’re known for is being good at teaching the right communication skills and tools that are necessary for you to have a healthy relationship. That’s important. This is the nuts and bolts that you need outside of therapy to have a happy life and to be in a really healthy relationship, and that’s our approach. We’re not only going to help you with those during your session, but we’re probably going to ask you to do some of the homework at home.
Now, everybody that works at my center is not only licensed, but we’re old enough and have enough life experience to back up our skillset. We’re interactive and direct, we’re solution-focused. Much like a relationship coach, we’re active participants helping you, and we start by creating relationship goals. What’s really important about having goals in therapy, it’s going to guide you. Are you getting your money’s worth? Are you moving in the right direction? You’re going to know, and we can make adjustments along the way. Also, it’s going to let all of us know when it’s time to end therapy because you’ve achieved your goals, and that’s what we want as well.
Now, we specialize in marriage counseling and couples therapy, but we also help people individually sometimes who are in a committed relationship. You can come in by yourself and get a lot done. You could have a deeper understanding just from your perspective, maybe know what you can do on your own to have a healthy impact on your relationship, or maybe just to know what you can do to take care of yourself. Sometimes people come in who are dating, they’re trying to find that right life partner; you want to make healthy decisions. We do premarital counseling. We’ll take your communication styles and develop some strategies for a really successful marriage.
Now, you have insurance, you might have out-of-network insurance. You can find out by calling your insurance company. We are licensed therapists, and if you have out-of-network coverage, we can give you an invoice that might get you some money back. Also, if you have something called flex spending or health savings accounts, sometimes you can use those monies to help pay for your therapy.
If you haven’t noticed, we have a lot of articles on this website. Those are free articles with a lot of really good advice. You probably could find something that you can relate to right now. I really encourage you to check it out. Also, it’s a great way to get to know us and the kinds of advice that we give at Fayetteville, NC RCC.
If there’s anything that I can do for you, let me know. Thank you.
