*What Do These Credentials Mean?

Marriage and Family Therapists have either a master’s or doctorate degree specializing in family and interpersonal dynamics. They treat individuals in the context of family relationships, addressing issues from anger and resentment to intimacy and communication skills.

Master of Science is an academic degree usually awarded after completion of two years of graduate study. Many MS programs also require a thesis. Many therapists hold a master’s degree, and many earn a master’s “en route” to earning their doctoral degree.

The Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) has a graduate academic degree, clinical work experience, and has passed state-certified licensing exams. Along with a two- to three-year master’s program with a practicum and internship, LMFTs are required to complete clinical training in individual or family therapy. Some states require completion of 3000 hours of service.

The Certified Sex Therapist (CST) has a graduate degree and can demonstrate their competence in sex therapy by becoming credentialed by either the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT), or another organization that offers that credential.
