Meet the Commissioners

The Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) is made up of  professional members and public members. Professional Commission members must be senior marriage and family therapy educators or clinicians. Public members represent the interests of the general public and are not professional marriage and family therapy educators, supervisors or practitioners.
