Many couples looking for a marriage therapist don't know how to find a good marital therapist. Regardless of where you are I have two recommendations. First, find a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT's). I am biased in this because my training was in marriage and family therapy. Neverthless, MFT's are trained specifically in helping couples and their families. In graduate school one half of their hours are required to be marital and family therapy. If you want to find a licensed MFT you can go to http://www.aamft.org. Once at this site you can look up a local therapist in your area. This listing is of American Association of Marital and Family Therapists (AAMFT) approved therapists. This means that they have been through MFT training and they have applied to become licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
