Q: I've never been to counseling before. What should I expect the first session?
A: At the first session, please bring your ID, insurance card and payment (if you have one). The first session involves filling out and reviewing paperwork (about 10 minutes). The remainder of the session is dedicated to exploring what brings you to counseling. What symptoms are you experiencing? What goals do you have for counseling? What do we (therapist) need to know about you, your life and your future? Each therapist has a different style, we are collaborative and will work with you to grow and achieve your goals.
One session is 55-60 minutes in length
Q: Do I have to be in a relationship to go to a couples and family therapist?
A: No. Individuals often seek help from a couple and family therapist to address behavioral problems, relationship issues, or mental and emotional disorders. Individuals may also focus on issues which may be preventing them from being in a relationship or work on issues from a marriage or a relationship that has ended. Couples need not be married to seek or benefit from marriage and family therapy. Individuals who want to improve themselves and their relationships can benefit as well.
Each and every one of The Relationship Center's clients is treated as a respected individual deserving of the utmost care and compassion. Dr. Rogers and Team TRC strive to make a difference in all clients' relationships. By working together with you, we will help you find your own solutions to deal with the concerns in your life.
We are clinical counselors and marriage and family therapists. Couple and family therapy is a distinct mental health discipline that works with families, couples, and individuals by looking at all aspects of their lives. Couple and family therapists address a wide variety of relationship issues and diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders. The unit of treatment isn't just the person - even if only a single person is present - it is the set of relationships in which the person is embedded.
