Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I’m a Licensed Therapist and I’m the Founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. I’ve created this video to help you understand if we are the right therapists for you. And if we’re not, it’s good information that everyone should know.
First of all, we specialize in relationship issues. We work with couples and individuals. When couples come in, we’re going to create a safe environment without judgment or blame where you can get to the bottom of what’s really going on between you two. I often find that couples can move forward in healthy ways when they have a deeper understanding of one another. We’re also really good at teaching the right communication skills and tools that are necessary for you to have a healthy relationship. We’re going to help you with those during your session, and we most likely will ask you to work on them at home.Everyone who works at my center is old enough and has enough life experience to back up their skillset. We’re licensed therapists. We’re direct and
interactive, very down-to-earth. Many people find that we’re solution-focused therapists. Much like a relationship coach, we’re active participants helping you in your relationship. To start off, we’re going to help you create relationship goals. What’s important about that – it’s going to guide you throughout your therapy. You’re going to know if you’re heading in the right direction. And if we’re not, we’re going to make adjustments. Also, we’re all going to know when it’s time to end therapy because you’ve achieved your goal, and that’s what we want as well.A first step could be just to give me a call. I can answer any additional questions that you might have. And if everything feels good, I’ll have the right therapist call you as soon as possible. It’s a great time to get to know them on the phone, the person you’re going to be seeing. They’re probably going to ask you a little bit about why you’re coming in, and they’re going to tell you all the times that they can see you, both day and night so that you can come in as soon as possible. We usually can see you within 24 to 48 hours.
We specialize in marriage counseling and couples therapy, but we also work with individuals. Sometimes people want to come in by themselves who are in a committed relationship, they want to get clear about what’s going on for them and how to move forward. Sometimes people come in who are dating, wanting to find that right life partner, making good, healthy decisions. We do premarital counseling. We help people set up for success. Using your communication style, we can figure some strategies for you guys to have a successful marriage.
If you don’t know this, we don’t accept insurance, but we are licensed therapists so as such, if you have any out-of-network coverage through your insurance company, we can assist you with an invoice that might get you some money back. I recommend you call your insurance company and verify if you have out-of-network coverage. Sometimes people also use flex spending or health savings accounts through work to pay for this sort of a thing.
If you haven’t noticed, we have a lot of videos and articles on this website. They are free for the taking. I really encourage you to check it out. You’re probably going to find a relationship issue that you can identify with, you might even find some advice on there that’s helpful for you, and also, you’re going to get to know who we are, the kinds of therapists we are, the kinds of advice that we give.
I hope I can help you. Let me know. Thank you.
