The MACFT program prepares students to become a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). Under the guidance of state approved clinicians and American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) approved supervisors, students are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat mental health and relationship concerns. Graduates are prepared to clinically heal and empower individuals and relationships from intersecting social locations (e.g., ethnicities, gender identities, faith traditions).
Our graduates work in community agencies, private practice, school settings, and other clinical arenas. They contribute to the field of couples and family therapy by seeing clients, advocating for justice, and participating in professional organizations including the Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and Washington Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
Donations to the Couples and Family Therapy Program fund will be used to help students achieve academic excellence, such as providing students with small grants to cover some expenses they might have when completing projects and research or stipends while completing internships.
