What does a Marriage and Family Therapist do?

More than ones I have been asked what is a MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist)? How is it different from a Psychologist and Social worker? And what does a MFT do? I believe that this YouTube clip by Eli Karam, does a great job in answering all of these questions and more. Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists are not only able to help couples. We are trained in various different mental health issues and equipped to see children, individuals plus families in addition to couples. When listening to clients’ concerns we integrate the family dynamics and always keep the relationship aspect in mind.
