What is an LMFT?2019-01-21T04:55:34+00:00

LMFT are the credentials of a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. LAMFT are the credentials of a Licensed Associate Marriage & Family Therapist. (An LAMFT is working under supervision working toward independent licensure.)

“Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems, and licensed to diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders within the context of marriage, couples and family systems”.

“Marriage and Family Therapists broaden the traditional emphasis on the individual to attend to the nature and role of individuals in primary relationship networks such as marriage and the family. MFTs take a holistic perspective to health care; they are concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families”.

“MFTs have graduate training (a Master’s or Doctoral degree) in marriage and family therapy and at least two years of clinical experience. Marriage and family therapists are recognized as a “core” mental health profession, along with psychiatry, psychology, social work and psychiatric nursing”.

 

Does Gateway take insurance?2019-01-21T04:53:56+00:00

Contact your insurance company to see if you have coverage for individual or marital or family therapy, have a deductible to meet, or have out-of-network coverage.  Some of our therapists accept BlueCross/BlueShield, and Cigna.  Others are self-pay only. If you have out of network coverage your insurance company may cover some or all of the costs of your appointment.  All payment is due at the time of service. You may request a summary of services or Super-bill to submit to your insurance company should they reimburse you.
