Licensure Information & Resources

MAMFT is the professional home for MFTs and relational healers in MN and is DIFFERENT from the regulatory board which regulates/licenses MFTs in MN.  Below is some information on the licensure process, but please defer to the MN MFT Regulatory Board for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information.  You might also find the information on MFT-License helpful.

MFT Licensure in Minnesota is a 4-Step Process:

1) Graduate-Level Education

Those interested in MFT licensure should check with their school of choice to determine if it is COAMFTE-accredited. If it is, your coursework satisfies MN licensure requirements. If it is not, equivalency requirements are set forth in Minnesota Administrative Rule 5300.0140
