Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I’m the founder of our center, and I’ve created this video to help you make a decision if we are the right Orlando therapist for you. I want to give you some information about our approach, what to expect during your first session, and also some ways to help pay for therapy.
So, first of all, everyone runs into challenges in their life, and it’s important for me to say that it’s okay to ask for help. I think a lot of times in our culture, we don’t. And it’s very helpful. You come into a licensed professional, we have a lot of experience with many issues that people have gone through, and we’ve supported people in overcoming many challenges. So it could be a great help coming into a licensed professional.
We’re very interactive, so during your first session, we’re probably going to ask you a little bit about why you’re there, and your thoughts, your feelings, your opinions about your issue. And we’re going to ask a lot of questions. We’re going to get to know you that way. And I think clients feel very relaxed about that style of therapy, because it’s like a conversation. But it’s directed; we’re really trying to get to the bottom of what’s going on for you in your life, so that we could ultimately help you.
Most of us are referred to as solution-focused therapists. We’re here to listen and very good at it, but we’re also here to help you create a roadmap to move forward in your life, in your own time, of course. And we will teach you the skills and tools that are necessary, and support you, taking what we talk about during our sessions and taking it out into your life where you really can have an impact on your life and your happiness.
Taking the first step could be just to give us a call. You can reach out and talk to one of our therapists on the phone without any commitment at all. It’s a great way to get to know the therapist that you’d be seeing, see if you feel comfortable with them, and if they’re a good fit for you.
Another thing that you can do is just watch some of the videos on our website. We have a lot of relationship issues, life issues on there, and you might find an issue you can relate to and maybe some solutions that you could implement in your life now. It’s also a great way to get to know the kinds of advice that we can give.
Now, if you’re coming into therapy, some of you may have health insurance that covers what’s called out-of-network coverage. We are out-of-network providers, and if you have something like that, and verify it with your insurance company, we can give you an invoice that may assist you in getting some money back. Also, sometimes people have what’s called flex spending or health benefits that you can use those monies to help pay for therapy, and we also can support you with an invoice if that’s the case.
Most of all, if you want to make a change in your life and you’re ready to take that step, reach out and give us a call. We’d love to help you. Thank you so much.
