What is a Marriage and Family Therapist?

The title “Marriage and Family Therapist” or (MFT) can be
misleading as MFT's not only work with couples and families,
but they also work with individuals. The title describes how
MFT's work with clients more than who they work with.

Marriage and Family Therapist often conceptualize clients
through intergenerational theory, which means they consider
family of origin information to discover possible connections
in the client's way of being in the world or dealing with life's
issues. They also rely heavily on systems theory which is
concerned with problems of relationships, and of
interdependence of people within a system.
