Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisors and AAMFT Approved Supervisors are Rare
There are very few marriage and family therapist supervisors in Ohio. In fact, there are only ### of them in Ohio as of 2020. In the past clinicians have not pursued initial and/or full licensure as a marriage and family therapist because they could not find an appropriate supervisor. Others have gotten supervision from a non-systems-based clinician or a clinician who forced them to use a theory that was not systemic. This can often lead to frustration and burnout due to not practicing in a way that resonates with the MFT intern or LMFT. Other clinicians may have even experienced microaggressions or had their clients experience some sort of insensitivity from a well meaning supervisor who was not culturally aware or competent. However, the good news is that an empathetic, competent, qualified, collaborative and culturally aware Ohio or Michigan LMFT supervisor and AAMFT approved supervisor candidate exists and is ready to support you and to help you graduate and reach full licensure status.
