Board of Marital & Family Therapy

Attention: The division is recruiting for multiple positions across the state to fill vacancies in important roles. Most positions are telework-capable and could work outside our home office locations. Click here to review job descriptions and apply. Check back often as new recruitments are added.

The Board of Marital and Family Therapy is staffed by the Division of Corporation and Professional Licensing. The board consists of three marital and family therapists and two public members. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of marital and family therapy in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The board meets at least once a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas are available from the licensing examiner.

Hard Copy License Certificates Discontinued

The division no longer mails hardcopy license certificates due to limited resources and staffing vacancies. Official copies of license certificates are now provided in licensees’ individual MY LICENSE self-service portal accounts. The certificates will be located under the “initial application” and “renewal” events in the MY LICENSE account.

If you need guidance on how to set up for or access your MY LICENSE account, you can access the MY LICENSE here.

For licenses expiring 12/31/2022:

Per 12 AAC 02.940(d), if you submit the renewal application and required fee before your license expiration date, your license will be extended to 3/31/2023 while staff review and process your renewal application. Once your renewal application is processed and complete, the extension date will be amended again accordingly. You may see the extension to 3/31/2023 appear anytime between now and December 31st. Please check your MY LICENSE self-service portal for additional updates and information that may be needed to complete your renewal.
