Frequently Asked Questions
 
What is a Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT)?
 
MFTs are mental health professionals who specialize in working with individuals, couples and families.  MFTs believe that an individual's emotional concerns or issues can be more meaningful and productive when treated within the context of his or her relationships.
 
A family's patterns of behavior influence the individual and therefore may need to be a part of the treatment plan.  In Marriage and Family therapy, the unit of treatment isn't just the person - even if only a single person is interviewed - it is a set of relationships which the person is embedded.

* brief
