Bellevue, WA, December 30, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Marlon Familton and Collaborative Couples & Family Counseling, LLC announces that clients may now schedule a "Risk Free First Session", for marriage, couples and individual therapy.
Many individuals and couples who are facing challenging issues in their life or relationships turn toward counseling and therapy as a means of support and change. Unless they already know a therapist or a friend, or relative offers a referral, most turn turn to the phone book or internet to find a counselor. An insurance company might provide a referral, however in all these cases the therapist is a strange to the client and sharing deep personal issues with a stranger is hard for anyone.
"The alliance between the client and therapist has been shown to be one of the most important aspects of effective therapy." Familton says. "My intention behind offering a risk free first session is to give more people the chance to meet me and see what therapy with me is like before feeling committed to the process."
The normal rate is $80 per hour. However if after the first session, either counselor or client do not believe they are a good fit, there is no charge for the first session.
"This risk free first session is not a free session. I simply want people who might be willing to engage in the process of therapy the chance to see what it is like." Familton says. "In general, most insurance companies do not reimburse for marriage or couples counseling. In these cases reluctant couples have a chance to try therapy without a huge financial risk.
