Marriage & Family Therapist Intern

A Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) Intern is a professional who is still completing their postgraduate training and supervised clinical hours under the guidance of a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. MFT Interns are typically in the process of obtaining their license to practice independently as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

MFT Interns are trained to work with individuals, couples, and families to help them navigate challenges and improve their relationships. They focus on addressing the complex dynamics within a family or relationship and strive to create an environment that supports open communication, mutual respect, and understanding.

MFT Interns work with clients to identify the root causes of their problems and develop a plan to address them. This can involve working with clients to develop new skills and coping mechanisms, as well as helping them learn how to communicate more effectively with one another. MFT Interns also help clients to explore their emotions and experiences, and support them in developing healthy, supportive relationships.

MFT Interns work under the supervision of a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and are required to complete a specific number of supervised clinical hours before becoming licensed themselves. During this time, they may work in a variety of settings, such as clinics, private practices, schools, and community agencies.

In addition to working with clients, MFT Interns also participate in ongoing training and professional development to enhance their skills and stay up-to-date on the latest research and techniques in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
