You’re a friendly person. Whenever there’s a chance to get together and have some fun you’re usually up for the occasion. You usually enjoy spending quality time with friends, family, and partners, but it seems more difficult than it should be for you.
Hanging out and having someone to call used to be a lot easier. But now it seems like everyone has something else they’ve got to do. Or even worse, they make plans and don’t follow through.
You’re starting to see patterns in your life where you’re always the one reaching out and never the one who gets what they need. And it’s not just your friendships, you can also see times in your romantic life where your needs came last in the relationship. Lately, you’re starting to wonder if the reason you’re missing out on meaningful connection is you.
So here you are, frustrated that the only time you feel in touch with anyone else is when they want something from you.
You totally understand having obligations you have to fulfill. But you didn’t expect to have such a hard time making new friends or keeping the ones you already had. You never thought dating and being romantic would be so difficult.
Life is OK right now and you’re happy, but you’d love to have a few close relationships to share it with.
Relationship Counseling is intended for anyone who may be feeling unheard within their relationships, those who feel as if they’re just going through the motions, or people who find themselves getting hung up on past relationship pains.
You will benefit from Relationship Counseling sessions if:
There are certain situations where you might not be ready for Relationship Counseling sessions with Urban Wellness. These situations include, but are not limited to:
If you are currently experiencing a severe mental illness, we recommend you seek outpatient services at a local program like Thresholds. If you are currently experiencing substance abuse or dependence, please see our other specialized service.
Relationship Counseling is meant to help you identify the things that are important, so you can begin to live a satisfied and fulfilled life. Whether it’s with partners (both past and present), colleagues, family or friends, our counselors can help you start to grow healthy relationships and improve your ability to communicate your needs effectively within your relationships.
You and your therapist will meet together weekly for 55-minute sessions. Therapy is best done with at least an 8-week commitment. We find that clients who cannot commit to at least 8 weekly sessions and meet less than weekly tend to have more difficulty in establishing a relationship with their therapist and often spend their sessions recapping the previous weeks instead of focusing on forward movement. After 8 weekly sessions, you and your therapist can discuss the movement toward your treatment goals and whether reducing sessions to biweekly or terminating therapy is the next step.
During this initial session, you will meet with your therapist to define the counseling relationship and discuss the details of informed consent. Your therapist will gather information about you and your biological, psychological, and social history and how this is impacting your current situation. You will also discuss the goals you have going forward together.
Counseling is a fee for service program and Urban Wellness accepts all major forms of payment.
Initial sessions cost $180 and each follow-up session costs $155 and we recommend at least an 8-week commitment.
Urban Wellness accepts insurance and offer in network and out of network benefits. We accept BCBS PPO, Humana, and United Healthcare insurances, at their contracted rates. For your convenience, we will do a benefit check on your behalf and notify you of our in network or out of network benefits. Copays, deductibles or any out of pocket costs are due at the time of service.
You are capable of getting out of bed and facing the day without panicking. It is possible to accept the unknown about your life and move forward while feeling like you will be ok even if something bad does happen. You will be able to experience new situations without feeling terrified that something will be out of your control.
It’s true your anxiety has made you question your ability to live a full life, but that does not mean
you cannot start to get a handle on the things that shut you down. Urban Wellness can help.
Schedule your first appointment. For follow up appointments (existing clients), please contact your therapist at 773-774-4444.
