Become an Approved Supervisor

It is recommended that Approved Supervisors seek status as both AAMFT Approved Supervisors and LMFT Approved Supervisors, and that Registered Supervisor Candidates seek status as both AAMFT Supervisor Candidates and LMFT Registered Supervisor Candidates.

Either an LMFT Approved Supervisor or an LMFT Registered Supervisor Candidate under the supervision of an LMFT Approved Supervisor may supervise MFT Interns. There is no fee to become an LMFT Approved Supervisor or Supervisor Candidate.
An applicant for LMFT Approved Supervisor must have two years of experience as an LMFT in Louisiana or another state.

The supervisor must be an LMFT and must have had coursework in marriage and family therapy supervision as well as supervision of supervision by a qualified supervisor as determined by the Advisory Committee.

Designation as an AAMFT Approved Supervisor qualifies a person to become an LMFT Approved Supervisor. AAMFT Approved Supervisors do not automatically become LMFT Approved Supervisors. They must apply for this designation.
