Our intention at Valencia Relationship Institute (VRI) is to provide you with support and guidance to ensure that you are successfully reaching your relationship and emotional goals.
Our VRI process was born out of our belief that we all need support in order to reach and successfully maintain peak emotional health. We feel that by supporting and guiding you through these different phases, you will be successful at achieving your desired goals.
Part 1 of the VRI process begins with your initial phone call or email:
We know that making the initial contact can sometimes be the hardest part of the counseling process, so it’s important for us to make this as seamless as possible for you, once you do.
When you call us at 661-259-8200 or message us from our website, our client ambassador will get back to you within four hours* and gather a necessary amount of information on your current needs and help to identify what type of counseling will be most suitable.
Part 2 of the VRI process is getting matched with the appropriate therapist for your situation and intentions:
Our client ambassador is experienced in placing clients with the therapist whose experience and counseling style fit their needs best.
Regardless of the selected therapist’s style of therapy, VRI places high value in personalizing our professional approach based on the specific needs and desires of our clients. Once you’re placed with a therapist, you will be emailed the forms to read and fill out prior to your first session.
Part 3 of the VRI process is meeting with your therapist for your initial appointment:
The final stage of our process is the initial appointment with your VRI therapist. During this appointment, you and your therapist will work together to establish your relationship/emotional goals, address specific challenges you’re experiencing and determine what areas of your life to focus your sessions on. Gathering information in this way allows for the most efficient use of session time, which will transpire into a weekly or bi-weekly counseling appointments, based on your needs.
At VRI, we take a holistic approach to our clients in that our therapists have access to industry experts and resources in related fields in which therapy does not apply (e.g. psychiatry, holistic medicine, medical issues).
*Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Then, please come in anyway. Many people find that as they seek outside professional help and begin to feel better, the relationship improves.
Yes, we are available to anyone who is struggling- whether that is with stress, anxiety, depression, grief, illness, life transitions, parent/child or teen conflicts. Our process is simple… we just want you to feel better.
Our team of therapists are here to help you sort out your thoughts and feelings so you can make effective decisions that will make you feel better. We will not tell you what to do, but we will support you as you explore your various options.
There is a great deal of research that shows how effective talk therapy can be in helping many people. Many of our past and present clients report relief from stress, depression, anxiety and various relationship struggles (whether it be with a partner, a child, teen or family). Other people seek therapy because they yearn for a more meaningful life or a greater sense of well being and peace of mind. Although you definitely have inner resources available to make positive changes in your life all by yourself, we believe that having an outside trained professional- who only cares about you being happier- can make the process easier and sometimes with faster results.
Wow…we wish we could make that promise because we truly want everyone to be happier and have more fulfilling relationships. We can only attest to the fact that most of our clients who work with us at Valencia Relationship Institute feel better and make such positive changes in their lives. We will do our best to help you every step of the way to support you on your journey. More importantly, we want your feedback along the way, and will actively seek out your opinions on how you see the therapy process working for you. In that way, we can evaluate your progress to make sure that we are providing you with the best service possible.
Our high trained and experienced therapists have been hand picked to help you. Let us be direct…if you want low-cost counseling, we are not the right match for you. Our rates run between $150-$200 for each 45-minute session depending on the therapist you choose. If you have questions about our fees or our therapists, please feel free to contact our Client Ambassador at 661-259-8200 x1.
While we understand that having health insurance can be important when you have medical issues and expenses, many insurance companies do not pay for couples counseling because they do not see relationship conflicts as a medical problem.
We agree that relationship issues are not medical problems. However, you might find therapist that are willing to take your medical insurance for counseling.
Using medical insurance for counseling has a few risks involved to you though. Look, in order to use your medical insurance, you (or your spouse, son or daughter) must be given a mental disorder diagnosis which will now be listed on your medical records. This may cause problems for you later when you might be asked “have you ever been diagnosed with a mental illness?” when applying for health insurance, life insurance, or on a job application.
We want to help you and your relationships; not possibly cause you problems later due to a diagnosis on your records. This is why we do not take health insurance as reimbursement.
Excellent question! When you arrive, please have a seat in our waiting room. At your scheduled appointment time, your therapist will greet you and invite you into a confidential therapy room. Your therapist will invite you to share your story and will help you explain why you were seeking help at this time. Our goal is to help you be happier in your relationship. We want to help you find out what is not working and help you work together to improve your relationship whether you were coming in for couples counseling, family counseling, or parenting help.
We are here to help. Please call our client ambassador at 661–259–8200 ext.1 if you have any additional questions.
