sara-roe-therapistSarah J. Roe, LCSW
Sarah Roe is a licensed clinical social worker in Raleigh, North Carolina with over 25 years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples and groups. Experienced in a variety of therapeutic approaches, Sarah’s style is eclectic in nature and tailored to the issues presented. While couples present with a variety of issues, often they are related to some sort of transitional situation such as illness, the birth of a child or changes in health or finances. Sarah sees her role as a facilitator, assisting clients to make the necessary adaptations both individually and in their relationships. Other common issues addressed in therapy include loss of sexual intimacy, infidelity, codependency, family of origin issues, substance abuse, LGBTQ issues, chronic physical or mental illness and parenting differences. Her approach is relaxed, nonjudgmental and empathic. By gently probing clients to explore their own perceptions and interpretations of the presenting issues, couples are able to discover the “real” issues underlying the presenting problem(s) and obtain greater self-awareness and empathy for one another.

Sarah received her BA in Psychology from Clemson University in 1987 and her MSW in 1989 from the University of Georgia. She is an experienced DBT therapist, (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), and co-facilitated the DBT skills groups for the Adult Community Treatment Teams’ DBT program at Wake County Human Services in Raleigh, NC for several years. Current interests include issues unique to couples in recovery, relationship stress related to parenting of special needs children and the use of mindfulness to increase compassion, empathy and connectedness in relationships.

Hello. My name is Sevin Philips. I’m a licensed therapist and I’m the founder of our center in Providence RI. I’ve created this message to help you find out if we are the right therapist for you. I also want to give you some idea of what therapy is and what to expect, and some practical information, especially about how to help pay for it.

First of all, everyone hits roadblocks in their life and some of us don’t have the answers. We stumble, we fall, we feel stuck, and it’s completely healthy to reach out and ask for help. And I say this because I think a lot of us find in our culture that it’s weak to ask for help or there’s something inherently wrong with us to admit we need help. And I don’t find that to be true at all. In fact, some of the most courageous people that I know are the ones that when they need help can reach out and ask for it.

Reaching out to a licensed professional can be one of the smartest decisions you’ve made. Our job is to help people. We have skills, and tools, and experience at our side to bring in and help you in very unique ways. Sometimes people have life strategies that just aren’t working anymore and you need help with that, and creating new strategies and how to move forward in healthy ways.

When you come into your first session we’re probably going to ask you some questions. What are your thoughts, your feelings, your opinions about your life issue? And get to know you. We’re going to have a very open and interactive dialogue. It’s a great way to get to know somebody, to develop trust. I also find that clients, through having this kind of conversation, can more deeply understand themselves and have a lot more clarity about what’s been going on in their life.
Unique relationship, therapy and client is way different than friends or family. A lot of times when we come to friends or family, we have to really anticipate their feelings and we have to worry about what information we share, and how it’s going to affect them. It’s just a different level of a conversation. What’s really unique about the therapist-client relationship is this is one place in your life where it gets to be just about you. It’s a very safe place.

Now, when we help you move forward, we’re going to talk about skills and tools, we’re going to develop strategies during our session, and we’re going to support you as you move those out into your life, and in your own pace, create the life that you want.

I might recommend to watch some of the videos or read some of the articles that we have on our website. It’s a great way to get to know who we are, the kinds of advice that we give. You’re probably going to find some information on there, or some solutions, even, that could help you today.

Although picking up the phone is probably my greatest suggestion for you. If you call us, you can talk to one of our receptionists who can handle basic questions for you, and they can connect you to the therapist so you can talk to them on the phone. Tell your therapist a little bit about what’s going on in your life, see if you feel comfortable on the phone with them. Is it a good personality match? And if you do feel good, then you can make an appointment.

Getting help paying for therapy, many of us have insurance, and if you do, you can call your insurance provider and ask if you have any out-of-network coverage. Sometimes if you have out-of-network coverage, we can give you an invoice that could help you get reimbursed. Also, if you have anything like flex spending through work, sometimes people use those monies to pay for therapy.

I hope this video was helpful. And ultimately, I encourage you to take the next step in your life, reach out, and pick up the phone, and let us know what we can do to help. Thank you so much.

So, I’ve had what I’ll call “classic” issues with therapy. Until about 18 months ago, I thought that I could just deal with whatever I needed to, without help. Yeah. Then, I had a couple of unsuccessful starts with a couple of other therapists; One who really sucked, and one whose style was more along
