Family Therapy Training Instutite Testimonials and Outcomes

"I owe the best of my professional training to FTTI."

– Maria Del Carmen Rangel

"The faculty has always modeled the highest professional standards and are role models for their students."

– Charles High

"If I had to choose again between a traditional master's degree in a university or FTTI, I would choose FTTI without hesitation."

– Lori Thuli

"When I graduated from graduate school, I had the theory. When I graduated from FTTI, I had the skills to practice marriage and family therapy."

– Susan Halling

"As an EAP provider, I use my systems training in my work with couples and families, as well as with the companies we serve. I also seek out LMFTs when I need to refer a couple or a family to treatment."

– Maureen Laustsen

"I acquired more practical skills at FTTI than throughout my lengthy master's program."

– Charles Lawler

"This was the best professional decision I have ever made. My husband and I moved to Wisconsin for me to attend FTTI 20 years ago. Most of my closest colleagues are former students and supervisors who went through the program with me. I work with them, consult with them, and have friendships with them. What a "priceless" outcome! I think all therapists should have some MFT training."

– Rose Eichenhofer
