What is a Marriage and Family Therapist?

Marriage and Family Therapists are trained to view individuals, couples, families, and groups from a systemic perspective. Everyone is part of a larger context— every one of us comes from a family of some type, a neighborhood, a society, and a culture. MFT's believe the whole context needs to be cardacknowledged in order to understand what is keeping the "problem" in place.

We believe understanding yourself in context, as well as the forces that are constantly influencing you, is key to making changes and living a more healthy, balanced, joyful life.

Payment

Our fee varies by therapist credential. Our customary fee is $90 for a 50 minute individual session and $105 for a 70 minute couple or family session, if your therapist has a MFT credential, and $100 for individuals and $130 for couples and families if your therapist has a LMFT credential. Regardless of therapist credential, If you cannot afford this fee, you may qualify for our sliding fee scale. We will discuss fees with you at or before your first visit.

Your insurance may reimburse for therapy with a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). At this time no HMO reimburses our practice, but most other insurance companies do reimburse LMFTs (but not MFTs). You will need to inquire with your carrier to verify coverage, and if reimbursement is denied, you will be responsible for all charges.
