A Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT) is a psychotherapist licensed by the California State Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). Obtaining an MFT license in California requires completion of a Master’s degree, 3,000 hours of supervised clinical experience, and passing two rigorous exams. Don’t let the name “Marriage & Family Therapist” fool you - MFTs work with individuals, too! MFT’s work primarily in the area of relationships. We are trained to help individuals, couples, families and children to have better family and social relationships. We are also required to maintain a minimun of 36 hours of continuing education each licensing period (2 years).
