The Counseling Process

Solution Focused Family Center’s role is to help clients identify and overcome the issues they are facing and experience a more satisfying life.

Counseling sessions will be held individually, as a couple, or with the family depending on the issues at hand.

These are some of the signs or issues that prompt people to seek counseling:

  • stress or anxiety
  • depression
  • child behavioral issues
  • eating disorders
  • substance abuse
  • family relationship conflicts
  • separation divorce
  • financial stress
  • grief/loss issues
  • intimacy, commitment, or relationship issues
  • thoughts and feelings about suicide or self-harm
  • anger or thoughts of violence

Often times people struggle with these kinds of issues within, they may talk things over with family members and friends, but sometimes that may not feel like it's enough.

What Can I Expect from Counseling?

What happens in counseling depends on the specific needs and strengths of each person seeking help. For this reason, each counseling experience is different, just as every individual is different.

Typically, the first few sessions are spent clarifying the problem and examining what solutions have already been tried. This process assists the counselor in determining which counseling strategies will be most helpful to you. Once you clarify your issues, you and the counselor will determine your counseling goals.

What are the Fees?

Is Insurance Accepted?

Solution Focused Family Center does not accept insurance. If you would like to submit a claim to your insurance we will be considered an out of network provider. This means the client will be responsible to pay for the counseling session and the client will contact their insurance company to see what documentation they need for reimbursement.

How Can I Get the Most out of Counseling?

  • Attempt to clarify your goals, and/or what you hope to get out of the experience
  • Consider how you feel about the counseling relationship
  • Be an active participant
  • Be open to try different techniques/strategies
  • Accept constructive criticism without becoming resentful
  • Focus on what is most important to you
  • Recognize and express feelings
  • Be patient with yourself and others
  • Ask questions

As with any other practice, counseling involves some risks. Whenever you make significant changes in your lifestyle, viewpoint or behavior, your life and the lives of those with whom you are closely involved may be affected. While the purpose of counseling is to make changes, you will want to consider the consequences that might arise.
