Couples Counselors Written By: Samantha Woodruff, Katie Hammer, and Randall Owens Couples counseling has been a rapidly growing profession for many years. The essential background involves many steps and a large amount of education to become a couple’s therapist. Couples therapy is a useful modality of help for couples who are experiencing problems such as repetitive arguments, feelings of distance or emptiness in the relationship, pervasive feelings of anger, resentment and or dissatisfaction or lack of interest in affection or in a physical relationship with one another. Licensed marriage and Family therapists (LMFT) resolve emotional conflicts between families, couples and individuals. The steps to becoming a couple’s counselor involve a serious education. The first step is to earn a bachelor’s degree in a related field, such as psychology, social work or sociology. The second step is to obtain an advanced degree as a marriage and family therapist.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
