Relationship counseling isn’t just for married couples. It is not offered solely to people from certain racial, social, and economic demographics. To be an excellent relationship and family counselor, you must have a research and practical background with a diversity of marriage, partnership, relationship, and family compositions.

The Counseling – Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling program at Portland State University answers the simple questions “How do I become a family counselor?” and “How do I become a marriage counselor?” with an inclusive, thoughtful response that has real impact on the community.

Program completion can lead to state licensure as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
