LMFT= licensed marriage and family therapist.
This doesn’t mean that I only see couples and families. It means that, even with individuals, I use my unique, context-focused lens to help you see outside your current perspective.
Prologue is an out-of-network provider, which means that if you have out-of-network benefits with your insurance plan, you may be reimbursed a portion of the fee. We can provide you with a superbill to aid you in filing your claims.
Our ultimate goal at Prologue is to be out of work. We want you to heal and not need us anymore. However, unless you’re doing Discernment or Premarital counseling, a specific amount of time cannot be defined. It depends on the complexity of the issue, the amount of effort you put in outside of session, and a myriad of other factors.
Generally, the therapy process at Prologue flows through these four phases, adapted from The Gottman Method:
Assessment– gathering information about you/your relationship. Assessment continues through the following phases as well.
Treatment– using the assessment information to set and achieve goals
Phasing Out– decreasing the frequency of sessions to create opportunity for practice
Termination– one or two sessions to look back on what you have accomplished and make a plan to keep it up independently
Everything you say absolutely stays just between the two of us, with minimal exceptions created to keep you and those around you safe. I am a mandated reporter, so I must break confidentiality if I learn that a child is being abused. I must also break confidentiality if you tell me you have a plan to hurt yourself or someone else. I also may need to disclose information if I am subpoenaed by a judge.
I think of relationships like a mobile over a baby’s crib. If one bobble is touched, they all move. If you make a shift in your relationship by going to therapy, even individually, the others in your life must react to that shift. It’s physics.
