Hello, my name is Sevin Philips. I’m a licensed therapist and I’m the founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Indianapolis, IN . We specialize in relationship issues, that’s what we do best. We help couples and individuals make better choices in their lives and find more happiness.
I’m going to give you some information that I think everyone should know. Some of it’s practical and some of it’s more about who we are. I want you to make an informed decision. Often times, if this is your first time making a decision about coming to see a therapist, it can be a daunting task so hopefully this information helps you whether you see anybody at our center or go somewhere else.Couples often come in and we can really help by slowing things down and helping you have a better understanding of what’s really going on, getting to the bottom of what is happening between you two. With this understanding, we often find couples can make different decisions and treat each other better. We also teach skills and tools for you to use which are very helpful in changing your relationship for the better.
One thing I want you to know is everybody that I hire is old enough to have enough life experience to back up their skillset, and that’s important for you to know. We come across and many people find that we are down-to-earth, we give a lot of direct feedback, and we’re very interactive. We’re active participants in helping you change your relationship.
We’re going to help you develop relationship goals and this is very important. With these goals, you are going to be able to track how you’re doing after every session. “Am I moving in the right direction in my couples counseling?” You should know that. In addition, you’ll also know when it’s time to end therapy because you’ve achieved your goal which is our ultimate goal is to help you be happy at home. We teach the skills and tools necessary in our room and help you with that, but we encourage you to do it at home where it matters most.
Sometimes people want to come in by themselves when you’re in a relationship. It actually can be very helpful, you can receive a lot of information on your own and make changes that are positive in your relationship or perhaps get clear about some things that you’re not clear about in the privacy of the office one-on-one with a therapist. Sometimes people come in by themselves who are dating and wanting to get more information about making better decisions in their life partner. And, of course, we specialize in marriage counseling and couples therapy, and you can come in any time.
Really the first step is giving me a call. I could answer any question that you might have. If everything makes sense for you and feels like a good fit, I’ll have the Indianapolis, IN, therapist call you immediately so you can get to know them on the phone. That’s a great first step. In addition, they might ask you a little bit about why you’re coming in. And, of course, they’re going to tell you all the times that they’re available both day and evening so you can come in as soon as possible. We usually can get you in within 24 to 48 hours.
Some of the practical stuff that you should know: we are out-of-network therapists. If you have any out-of-network coverage which you can ask your insurance company, we may be able to give you an invoice with all the codes and you can get some money back. If you have any flex spending or health savings accounts through your work, sometimes people use those monies to pay for it.
If you haven’t noticed, I have a lot of videos and articles on my website. I really encourage you to check it out. There’s a lot of really great advice about relationships. If you look, you’ll probably find something that you can relate to that’s happening in your relationship right now. First of all, it’s free information, you can start using that advice and hopefully helping your relationship, but it’s also a great to get to know who we are and the kinds of advice that we offer.
I really encourage you to give me a call if you’d like to take the next step. Thank you so much.
