Director's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our Web page!

More importantly, thank you for considering the profession of marriage and family therapy! MFT, as we affectionately call it, is a great profession for people who value helping others discover positive change in the midst of personal and relationship struggles. Psychotherapy with individuals, play therapy with children, or therapy with couples and families all require specialized knowledge and training, as well as personal inspiration.

Learning these skills also requires a supportive community of students, faculty and staff. We believe we have created a unique graduate training experience that offers these qualities and more. Email, call or write us if you'd like to learn more about the MFT profession or Friends University's Master of Science in Family Therapy program.

Warm regards,

Dr. Steve Rathbun, Ph.D., L.C.M.F.T.
MSFT Program Director
Professor of Marriage & Family Therapy
