Marriage & Family Therapy

Marriage and family therapists diagnose and treat emotional disorders – cognitive, affective and behavioral–that can occur in a marriage or family unit.

They use a combination of psychotherapeutic and family system theories and techniques to help couples and families who are dealing with stressful life situations or mental disorders. They can work with individuals, clients, couples and families and are trained to apply a family-centered perspective to the treatment of patients.

In order to work as a marriage and family therapist, a minimum of a master’s degree and a license to practice is required.
