Since 1942, the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) has established and maintained standards for the practice of marriage and family therapy. AAMFT’s members and Approved Supervisors fulfill stringent education and training requirements. The training of marriage and family therapists (MFTs) and Approved Supervisors includes direct supervision by experienced and specially trained clinicians, which is unique among the mental health disciplines. The standards for the field as established by AAMFT have been adopted by most states, some provinces, and the U.S. federal government as the basis for licensure and reimbursement requirements.

He supervises graduate students completing their masters degree in mental health counseling or marriage and family therapy. Dr. Evans also supervises register license interns (both MFT/mental health counselor) who are meeting their required hours for licensure for the state of Florida.
