We Are Here for You
You may be in a place in your life where you just feel completely lost with how to take the next step, and don’t know where to look to find hope again. We are here to listen to your story. As marriage and family therapists, we specialize in exploring and understanding the ways you relate to the world around you and strive to help you find new ways to connect with others from a place of vulnerability and confidence.
There may be times when your therapist might suggest inviting your family members and/or significant others to join you in therapy along the way to further help you in your healing journey.
A Few Steps to Consider Before Starting Individual Therapy
- Determine your ability to engage in therapy – virtual v. in-person – as well as time commitment.
- Consider a brief phone consultation with a therapist or a clinic to discuss concerns and see if their skills are a good fit for your needs.
- Reach out – the first step is often the hardest.
We Can Be Reached in Multiple Ways
- Complete an inquiry form on our website familyrelationalhealth.com
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone 630-733-8161
After you reach out, our Intake Coordinator will call and ask you a few questions that will help to clarify your struggle and determine what type of counseling is right for you. When there is a good fit, the intake coordinator will then match you with a therapist after consulting with the Clinical Team.
Working with Your Therapist
Your therapist will then walk through the next steps, which may include:
- Deciding to meet in-person or over video
- Schedule the session
- How to access forms to complete prior to your first session
- Answering other questions you may have
Your first session will be the time for you to tell your therapist about yourself, the struggles you are presently facing, and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. The following sessions will then focus on areas where you would like to grow.
