Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist, and I’m the founder of our center in Greensboro. I’m doing this video because I want to inform you and answer some questions that I think you might want to know about choosing a therapist, let you know a little bit about who we are and how we work, and give you some vital information also about how to help pay for therapy.
One of the things I want to say is that everyone, from time to time in their life, needs a little extra help. It is completely natural and normal to be stuck in your life and need to look for some answers. Coming to see a licensed professional is a very good idea. It’s a very unique relationship; it’s different than family or friends. We are 100% dedicated to helping you. And we’ve been working with people on a range of issues for many years, and so we have a lot of ideas and understanding about what’s going on in people’s life.
When you come in, most likely, we’re going to get to know your thoughts, your opinions, your feelings about your issue, and really going to take our time in getting to understand what’s going on in your life. Everyone’s unique. And also, we’re probably going to ask a lot of questions. We’re very interactive, and I think people like that. We’re not just listening. We’re active participants in not only understanding you, but helping you develop a deeper understanding of what’s really going on in your life. Through this interactive exchange, people often have epiphanies and insight that they did not have before.
Now, when we get to a certain stage, we are going to help you figure out how to move forward in your life in new and unique ways. We are solution-focused therapists, so ultimately, we want to help you find ways that you feel are accessible in your life to make the kinds of changes that you want to bring more happiness into your life.
One of the things you can do to check us out is to go and watch some of our videos or read some of our articles on our website. It’s very helpful in kind of seeing some of the opinions and the advice that we do give to some people. And also, you can reach out on our phone number and talk to one of our therapists today and see if there’s a good fit for you. There’s no commitment. You can tell your therapist a little bit about why you’re coming in, and if you feel good about them, you can come in as soon as you would like to.
Another thing that you might want to know when it comes to paying for therapy is that we are out-of-pocket, but a lot of people have what’s called out-of-network insurance or some sort of health benefit through work, and we can provide an invoice which can support you getting money back. We specialize in a solution-focused approach to individual counseling, couples therapy, couples counseling and marriage counseling.
I hope this helps. And reach out if you’d like to take the next step. Thank you.
