Sacramento Counseling Department


Thank you for considering the Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy program here at Western Seminary, Sacramento. We find great joy in educating and training counseling professionals. 

Our program stands out as an environment of spiritual and personal encouragement led by staff and faculty who are truly invested in the academic and professional success of each student. This environment extends beyond the campus walls as we partner with over thirty practicum sites to offer a wide variety of agency and non-profit settings to our practicum students.

Our program is approved by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, which means graduates meet the educational requirements for licensure in California as a Marriage & Family Therapist (L.M.F.T.)and with one unit of independent study, meet the educational requirements to become a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (L.P.C.C.)

As a close-knit community, we maintain alumni relationships through licensure and beyond. We hope you will join us.
