Our students become relationship specialists. You will be equipped to work with all age groups including children, adolescents and adults, and may choose to specialize with a specific population.


Integration of Christian Faith and Clinical Counseling

The distinguished LeTourneau faculty is committed to the highest quality of clinical counseling training and also a distinctively Christian counseling and psychology perspective of the counselor role toward assisting the whole person.

Students are trained to embrace and apply the empirically grounded principles of psychology and counseling to assist in spiritual and psychological health and in relationship reconciliation.

As a graduate of this program, you will have the academic, practicum and internship requirements for licensure in marriage and family therapy (LMFT) and licensure as a professional counselor (LPC) through the Texas State Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists and the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors.  Requirements in each state vary -- see www.AMFTRB.org for information about your state's licensure requirements and process.


Marriage and Family Therapy As A Career

Graduates may serve in a variety of contexts including: church, community, government, military, hospital, school and educational settings, and society at large in a variety of roles such as:

  • Independent counseling practitioners
  • Educators

  • Ministers of family life and counseling
  • Social work and human services roles
