  • "NEW LICENSURE LEVEL FOR MFT GRADUATES"
  •  
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate (LMFTA)

    A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate (LMFTA) holds a license that is granted to an individual who has met and maintained all the qualifications necessary for LMFTA licensure. A LMFTA must practice in an agency setting under a “Board Approved” supervision contract. Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associates do not have to earn continuing education beyond their supervision requirement and are not eligible for inactive status. The LMFTA license is valid for two years and can only be renewed once. Therefore, the LMFTA license will not be valid for more than four years. This should provide ample time to complete the post graduate supervised clinical experience requirements for licensure.

    Please see rules and regulations for further information on the application process for licensed marriage and family therapy associate.
