MFT Exam Prep Overview
Thousands of therapists take the MFT Exam every year to become Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. Many of these therapists have successfully used our Marriage and Family Therapy exam prep programs to pass. California is the only state with its own MFT exams administered by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS), which include the Law and Ethics MFT Exam and the Clinical MFT Exam. All other states use the MFT National Exam administered by the Association of Marriage and Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB). We are confident we offer the best MFT prep program available - we consistently have the highest MFT Exam pass rate and we have the greatest number of positive reviews in the industry.

Here's a recent review from John Tsilimparis, LMFT: "The Therapist Development Center was a great help. They provided excellent mock tests and easy to absorb materials. The AMFTRB MFT Exam is super hard to pass because it covers a wide range of topics with often complicated questions that get confusing. But the TDC study guides prepared me well for it. Most thankful to Amanda and especially Asya for their help. I highly recommend the service!"

Here's a recent review from Flavania Robinson: "TDC's study materials and Amanda's lectures prepared me for the MFT exam. The lecture series were very succinct and to the point. The questions in the TDC mock exams were similarly worded and mirrored the format in the real exam. The study rules and guidelines that Amanda provided were helpful when I got stuck in the exam. I was able to think through the scenarios, focus on what the question was asking for, and discern the right answer from options that were very similar. I would and did recommend TDC to another person preparing for the MFT exams."

Here's a recent review from Dana White, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist: "Words cannot express how relieved I was after using your MFT exam program for a few study sessions. I had previously studied for MONTHS with another company's study materials and felt lost, even worse, I started to doubt my intellectual ability to pass the MFT exam. I found TDC through a Facebook group called MFT Guide. Initially I was skeptical of everyone's praise for your program, but once I began using your reasoning strategies, my scores on the test bank I was using began to improve. Best of all, I regained a sense of hope that I could pass this test and I did!"

Therapist Development Center Reviews
I was very nervous about the test and my anxiety was worsened by the killing of George Floyd and recent protests plus the ongoing concerns of the coronavirus. There was little I was going to be able to do to increase my concentration so I could remember everything from the lectures. I focused on the "How to think" lecture and the test taking strategies and that was critical. I feel I internalized Amanda and her ruleout strategy and could hear her voice as I was choosing the answers. Relying on my field expertise, the foundational information that is covered and the test taking strategies made all the difference. Thank you!!
The test prep was excellent because it actually taught me a good amount of important information about being a good therapist! I did not necessarily expect this and was very pleased. They went over over a substantial number of theories, scenarios, and issues in a thorough and astute manner. Amanda (whose confident and clear voice will be in my head always!) is a top rate educator and I can imagine therapist, too. Not only did she offer a lot of direct teaching about the field of psychotherapy and how it's done well, but also tended the inevitable anxieties that arise in facing the test, coaching me in ways to think, calm my nervous system, and stay positive and healthy in order to have the best possible chance of passing. And I did! Whoohoo! Thank you TDC :)
I am 67 years old. I went back to grad school at age 62 to get my degree and finished my hours in February, 2020. I have maintained a practice of 25 clients while studying for this exam and believe whole-heartedly I would never have been able to do this without TDC! The study guides, lectures, and exams all contributed to my being fully prepared for the actual exam. Studying the rationales and organizing them by category was invaluable to me! All of the hints on how to approach the test were so important to me on test day. I did everything suggested, conquered my anxiety, and used good frames to analyze the questions. All of the materials were very succinct and I needed all of it to tackle the test. Thank you so much! After 30 years of teaching, raising 4 sons, e and enjoying 3 grandsons, TDC has helped me to realize my second career goal of owning my own LMFT practice! THANK YOU!
I tried other materials for studying and nothing compares to TDC. It broke everything down into simple and manageable steps. I don’t think I would have passed without TDC! Thank you!!
I think if I wouldn’t have used this program I would not have passed my first time around! After 3000+ hours of experience you know how to deal with most clinical situations, but what really helped me was the testing strategies/ways to think. The orientation to approaching questions in a strategic way saved me and boosted my confidence in the room. Thank you!!!
