Marriage and Family Therapists are Unique
Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are trained both in psychotherapy and in family systems ~ understanding concerns in the context of the important relationships in client lives.
Family-based therapy is a powerful model for change. Research has shown that family-based interventions such as those utilized by MFTs are as effective as– and in many cases more effective than– alternative therapies, often at a lower cost. Applying this holistic perspective to mental health care, MFT’s are concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families. Whoever the client, MFTs view problems from a relationship perspective.
