Meet the Commissioners

The Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) is made up of nine (9) Commissioners -- seven (7) professional members and two (2) 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. In selecting Commission members, every effort is made to maintain a balance with regard to race, ethnicity, gender, and geographic location. The Commission reflects a balance regarding academicians and practitioners as well as training contexts (master's, doctoral, and post-degree).
