What People Say About Dr. Marge Prefontaine, PHD

Dr. Prefontaine has been a great help to me. She has taught me how to have healthy relationships and identify when I may be headed down an unhealthy path with a partner. I am no longer with my partner of three years and I am much happier now. Sometimes it takes time to heal and continue with counseling while healing from failed relationships. Also, Dr. Prefontaine has helped me to make better decisions when looking for a new partner to share my life with. I highly recommend her!

In addition to my previous review, my husband and I are now separated, living in two different states and the likelihood of us getting back together are nil. I DO NOT recommend Dr. Prefontaine for marriage counseling. Worst experience for my husband and I EVER! On top of all of this, it is my personal opinion that she wants to continue see couples separately for monetary reasons.

I am so glad she is my counselor! I would not have been able to get through all of the ptsd struggles and events in my life if it wasn't for her! She has truly made me see the best in me!

Went to Dr. Marji for relationship therapy. She doesn't see you together and tells you what you need to change. Got no where with this therapy.

We knew our marriage needed help so we sought out counseling. She didn't want to see us as a couple. Within weeks of my partner seeing her she was reading books that were negative and had nothing to do with 'saving a marriage'. Months later my partner moved out and now a divorce is imminent. Dr. Prefontaine even answered her cell phone during my session with her! If you want to help or save your marriage, stay away!
