Meet Our Alumni

Graduates of Denver Family Institute MFT Training Program have gone above and beyond in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy. Our graduates came to us with a Masters in a related field (Counseling, Mental Health, Psychology, Social Work, etc.) and put in an additional two years and over 500 clinical hours to obtain their AAMFT certificates in Marriage and Family Therapy. We are so proud to recognize these fine therapists.
