Attention MFT's!

St. Cloud State University is considering phasing out their graduate program for Marriage and Family Therapy due to a financial deficit. See the link to the article HERE

We urge MFT’s to reach out to the university to urge them to reconsider this decision. To do so, you can contact the president, Robbyn Wacker here:

(320) 308-2122 |

See the attached letter that MAMFT has sent to SCSU's president HERE

Here are important points to consider in your letter:

• The role that MFT and counseling interns play in your practice

• The need for more licensed clinicians in your area

• The need for BIPOC clinicians to meet the need of underrepresented groups

• If you are an alumnus of the MFT or CMHC programs, highlight why you chose SCSU

• How your experience has/was with faculty in the MFT or CMHC programs.

• A positive story of something related to your experience with the MFT or CMHC programs.

Additional advocacy steps:

• Email President Wacker ( & advocating to reverse the retrenchment of faculty members and closure of MFT program.

• Submit a letter to President Wacker, in addition to an email, from your agency perspective.

• Ask for an in-person meeting with President Wacker as a group.

• Submit a Mental Health Awareness Month Op-Ed about the importance of protecting the faculty position to expand mental health care in the region and create a more diverse group of mental health professionals.

• Organize fellow students, family, and friends to contact the president in support of the reversing the faculty reduction and program closure.

The field of Marriage and Family Therapy is growing, and we want to ensure those in Minnesota are able to receive the necessary training and have access to programs throughout our state. We appreciate you taking the time to advocate for our training programs!

Regulatory Board Response to Professional Firms Act

Pre-licensed individuals and their supervisors have been asking how to comply with the Minnesota Professional Firms Act (MPFA). This law stipulates pre-licensed individuals cannot provide marriage and family therapy services as the owner of a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or limited liability partnership (LLP). 

Pre-licensed individuals who practice under their own LLC might be worried how this could impact their path to licensure. So we asked the Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy (BMFT/Regulatory Board) how they interpret the MPFA and, theoretically, how they would respond to someone who is not in compliance with the MPFA.

The Regulatory board stated their initial response would be to provide education, and recommend legal support, to help the applicant or LAMFT bring their practice into compliance. Specifically they stated “a complaint investigation is not opened and would not occur absent evidence of repeated noncompliance after receiving information about statutory requirements.”

We encourage individuals impacted by this to read the BMFT’s full response HERE
