Hello, my name is Sevin Philips. I’m the founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Madison, WI. I’m here to give you some information that’s going to be helpful in understanding if we are the right fit for you, and it’s also just good information for everyone to have about therapy, about paying for therapy, practical stuff, especially if this is your first time.
We specialize in relationship issues. We work with couples and individuals. When couples come in, we create a safe environment without judgment, without blame and help you get clear about what’s really going on between you two. With that added clarity, we’re often finding that we can move forward in a healthy way. In addition, we teach the skills and tools necessary for you to treat each other better. We help you in session with those skills, and most importantly, we want you to take it home where it matters most.Everyone at our center is not only licensed, but old enough and has enough life experience to back up their skillset. We’re direct, we give feedback, we’re interactive. Many people call us “solution-focused.”
We’re going to help you identify what your relationship goals are, and what’s really important about that, it’s going to let you know how you’re doing in couples counseling. It’s going to guide you: are we going in the right direction? Most importantly, we’re all going to know when it’s time to end therapy because you’ve achieved your goal, and that’s really what we want.
Sometimes people come in by themselves. They’re struggling in their relationship, maybe their partner is not willing to come in. I’m surprised at how much can get done when one person comes in and works on their relationship. Sometimes people come in who are dating and wanting to find their mate, their life partner, and sometimes they’re finding it difficult and want some help in making good choices – we can help with that. Our specialty is marriage counseling and couples therapy, so of course, if that is what you want whether you’re married or unmarried, give me a call.
That really is the first step. I could answer any question you might have. If everything feels good to you, I’ll have the right therapist give you a call as soon as possible. They’ll probably ask you a little bit about why you’re coming in. You’ll get to know them on the phone which is a great first step. They’re going to tell you all the times that you can see them, both day and night. We usually can see you within 24 to 48 hours.
On a practical note, we’re licensed therapists in Madison, WI, so if you have any out-of-network coverage through your insurance, we might be able to help you get some reimbursement. You can call your insurance and find out if you have that sort of coverage. We also help people sometimes, with an invoice, who have flex spending or health savings accounts, and that can help out as well.
If you haven’t noticed, we have a lot of videos on our website. I encourage you to check it out. You’ll probably find a relationship issue that’s going on in your relationship right now and you might get some really good advice, and you can start applying that right now. It’s free, it’s for you. It’s also a great way to get to know us and the kinds of advice that we give.
So let me know if I can help you. Thank you.
