Your Path to Relationship Counseling with Trusted Marriage Counselors

The National Registry of Marriage Friendly Therapists holds no political affiliation. We support individuals and couples of all race, sexuality, and gender. We stand with all and do not tolerate hate or biases.

Marriage Friendly Therapists


Welcome to Marriage Friendly Therapists. You’ve located a nationwide network of relationship & marriage counselors who want your relationship to thrive.

Each therapist is specifically trained in relationship counseling and has met eligibility requirements to make this roster. Most importantly, the health of your relationship is valued by every counselor you will find here; we want to help you find the joy of a deeply meaningful relationship.


Good relationship therapy needs to be conducted by a specially trained counselor. Talking with an inexperienced, poorly-trained, or values-neutral relationship counselor, can do more damage than good. Relationship counseling is a specialized form of therapy and it is important that it be conducted by someone with a significant amount of training and experience.


Every applicant goes through a rigorous review and credential verification. Each must agree to Marriage Friendly Therapist Values Statement.
