Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Therapy Work?

Therapy ‘works’ if you are open to the process. If you want to change your life and if you’re open to hearing a different way of thinking, therapy will help you. Therapy is basically talking to a completely objective person who is trained in understanding human behavior. Therapists identify and point out to their clients what negative behavior or thoughts they are engaging in. Therapists also support clients through difficult periods of time and provide reassurance and guidance.

How Long Do I Have To Be In Therapy For? Won’t It Become Expensive?

There is no set answer for how long one ‘needs’ to be in therapy for. It really depends on the person and how large the problem they have is. That being said, at Evölve, our therapists do not believe everyone needs weekly therapy for extremely long periods of time. (however some thrive this way) For most of our clients,  it is recommended weekly sessions for an average time span of twelve sessions and then the client is reassessed to determine if additional therapy is required. At Evölve, we use a different strategy treatment plan that sees our client’s issues quickly resolved so that the client is able to live their life in a healthier way and to decrease the cost impact regular therapy may have. You are worth the investment. Effective therapy will change your life for the better.

Does Couples Therapy Really Work? My Marriage Is Pretty Broken?

Yes! We do offer telephone sessions and online video sessions, especially for those clients that have limited mobility. If phone sessions are preferable for you, we do recommend we first meet in person initially, and then phone sessions c

This is a difficult question to answer because it honestly depends on the state of the marriage. If you are pushing your mate to go to a therapist it will not work. He or she needs to be just as willing to fight for your marriage as you are. You can’t be in a healthy relationship on your own. Nor should you settle for an unhappy relationship where you are not getting your needs met. If your partner could care less about what makes you happy, something is wrong. And if they don’t want to fix that, then no amount of couples therapy will help. However, if he or she is willing to do whatever it takes to save the relationship then couples therapy can be amazing and a crucial part of repairing your broken marriage.

Do We Need To Go As A Couple? Can I See A Therapist On My Own If I Want My Own Therapy?

You can come as an individual if you want to address your own issues and/or if your partner is unwilling to attend with you. Sometimes it’s even beneficial to come alone to work on your issues first, before bringing in your partner. That being said, couples therapy is often much more effective when both partners attend. If you’re seeking therapy in relation to an affair or an addiction issue, I recommend both the partner and their spouse have individual therapy as well in order to get the support and guidance they both need.

Do I Have To See You Weekly?

At Evölve, we complete an intake and assessment process that better determines the treatment plan and how often you will be required to attend therapy. Some of our clients attend every other week to help reduce the monthly cost impact therapy can have on finances. Just understand that any progress will be more slow-going due to the extended nature of the therapy and the recommended level of treatment will be revised to meet the amount of time you will be attending therapy. However, even twice a month therapy can be effective in helping to improve your life.

Does Evölve Hold Telephone or Online Video Sessions?

Yes! We do offer telephone sessions and online video sessions, especially for those clients that have limited mobility. If phone sessions are preferable for you, we do recommend we first meet in person initially, and then phone sessions can be arranged moving forward if you prefer.
