Marriage_com Answered:

Becoming a qualified Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) is a long road and requires a lot of education. It begins with a Bachelor’s degree in a field related to counseling, such as social work or psychology. Then a Master’s degree in marriage counseling must be earned before the candidate can gain clinical experience as a marriage counselor. This is done under the supervision of a licensed MFT, and gives the candidate practical experience working with couples. Once all educational components are fulfilled, the candidate must pass a written exam before they can be licensed by the state to practice as a marriage and family therapist.
