WAMFT invites its members to subscribe to get email or text alert notifications of information about rule making and other topics related to Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) from WA State DOH.




Rules are also known as regulations, Washington Administrative Code, or WAC.  The rules writing process is open to the public. The public is welcome to take part in helping us write rules. The rule-making process includes public notices and workshops, and usually a public hearing before a rule becomes final.

Reciprocity, Out of State Applicants

Reciprocity is here! Click below for more information on new rules set in place regarding out of state applicants ability to gain temporary licensure while applying for full licensure. It is important to note, that temporary licenses only allow you to practice therapy within licensed behavioral health agencies and not private practices.

Do you have a story to tell about being MFT-licensed in another state and trying to become MFT-licensed in Washington? We want to hear from you! Gathering many of these stories will allow us to advocate for you about licensure reciprocity.
