About

Family counselors work  with couples, families, and children. Employment settings for family counselors include mental health and community counseling agencies, chemical dependency programs, hospitals, marriage and family counseling clinics, crisis centers, and court services. Many experienced LMFTs and LCPCs work in private practice settings and bill third-party insurance.

Overview

Coursework for the 60 credit hours Master of Arts in Family Counseling program fulfills the requirements for state licensure, the CACREP Specialty Track, the National Academy for Certified Family Therapists, Inc., and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy Clinical memberships. Although most accrediting bodies use the words “Marriage and Family” to describe their specialty, this program has elected to use the word “Family” to represent what the program believes to be a better description of the practice methods.
