Interested in a career helping others as a therapist?

marriage and family counseling Oregon

George Fox’s Marriage and Family Therapy Program prepares students to work with individuals, couples, families and groups across the life cycle. Our graduates work in a variety of settings – private, institutional, community, Christian and cross-cultural – and find employment in private practice (group or individual), profit and nonprofit organizations and hospitals.

We offer both a master's degree and a certificate in marriage and family therapy:

The master's degree prepares students to sit for dual licensure – both the national licensure exam to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and the national licensure exam to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in Oregon.

The certificate program is open to those who already have a mental health degree.

What our program offers:

  • Courses taught from a systemic perspective
  • Opportunities to interact with other students pursuing careers as mental health professionals
  • An environment that encourages the integration of faith and learning
  • Full time, accessible, widely trained faculty
  • Flexible schedules that work for adults
  • Two-, three-, and four-year program options
  • Convenient Portland Center and Salem Center locations

The master’s degree program is generally two to four years in length with 68 semester hours of course work required as a minimum for graduation.

The Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy program is generally one to two years in length with 38 semester hours of course work required as a minimum for graduation.
