A Clinical Fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy is a licensed mental health professional with specialized training in psychotherapy and family systems.

They evaluate and treat mental and emotional disorders, other health and behavioral problems, and address a wide array of relationship issues within the context of the family system.  Marriage and Family Therapists understand people do not exist in a vacuum; everyone has a family that has influenced who they are and how they relate to others around them. An AAMFT Clinical Fellow is concerned with the overall, long ­term well being of both individuals and their families.

For marriage and family therapists, the unit of treatment isn’t just the individual, ­ even if only a single person is coming to counseling.
