Marriage therapy is an important first step toward bridging the gap between partners. It can be good for treatment of depression, marital problems, anxiety, individual problems, and more. Therapists will normally go through a two year post-degree supervised clinical work experience. Afterward, they will move toward licensure and certification. The AAMFT offers a national examination for the prospective therapist, or they can take part in their own state licensing exam.
