MFT Reviews

Before starting this program, I was completely overwhelmed with the idea of the test. But after starting the test prep with TDC, I knew I'd pass. The prep was easy to understand and convenient. I have recommended it to all my friends and coworkers. And I'm proof-passed both tests on the first try.

Using TDC's exam prep I was very confident and thoroughly prepared for both exams and passed on my first tries. My initial focus was on learning how to PASS the exams, and this program gave me strategies and know-how to succeed. What surprised me in this process was how much the learning has informed and improved my actual work as a therapist.  I would go so far as to say that TDC's program has made me a thoroughly informed, competent, confident and LICENSED Marriage and Family Therapist!

Thank you SO much!  This program gave me structure, confidence and practical tools to help me to pass. I followed every suggestion and kept to the plan, I will absolutely use this program for the clinical vignettes!

I used TDC material exclusively to prepare for both of my California MFT exams and passed both on my first attempt, only needing an extra 3-4 weeks after approval to take each exam. Prior to signing up I was skeptical, especially about how little time they recommended to study. But I'm a real believer now. I would typically have devoted all my time to studying for an exam like this, but TDC helped me keep my sanity, health, and relationships (and they address all those things too!). The team is dedicated and responsive--real clinicians who know what they are talking about. And to top it off, their material and coaching provided me with a confidence that took my licensed colleagues by surprise, especially for the clinical vignette exam. I couldn't endorse them more highly!

Thank you for the excellent study materials! I started to study for the MFT clinical vignette exam with another study prep company but soon felt lost and unsupported. I found The Therapist Development Center on Yelp and was impressed by all the positive reviews. I am so grateful I bought the program because after the first audio workshop I instantly felt better and focused. Now that I passed I am convinced it was because of TDC structured study program. I am so thrilled to be a licensed marriage and family therapist!

As someone with a history of test anxiety, I found TDC's program (both SWE and CVE) very accessible and helpful. I had briefly reviewed some other test prep materials and felt quickly overwhelmed. TDC has done a stellar job of distilling and synthesizing the relevant material for the written exam; and their strategies for the CVE were invaluable for sorting through the clinical vignettes. I really liked the structure of each program; the audio lectures made me feel as if Amanda were talking directly to me. Finally, I really appreciated their emphasis on balance and self-care throughout the studying process.

Thanks to TDC, I felt confident and calm throughout my exams. I finished the SWE with 45 minutes left and the CVE with about 20 minutes to go, passing both the first time!

Your system is brilliant  Knowing how to think was key. You gave sufficient information to be effective without overloading us with trivia. Bravo!

After hearing that "other guys" have "so much information," I was ready for a straightforward and streamlined study program.  TDC offers just that!  I felt prepared and encouraged to pass the exam and I did!

I went into the MFT Clinical Vignette Exam feeling confident and comfortable thanks to the Therapist Development Center.  I was able to prepare in 3 weeks, using the timeline provided in the study materials. This weekend, I passed the exam and am excited to be an LMFT!  Thank you thank you thank you TDC!

I felt so confident taking the exam this time. The study materials were excellent and the schedule allowed me to condense my studying to a two week time period. I am a new Mom and felt this was going to be impossible, but this system gave me the confidence and skills to master the vignette exam.

I would like to thank you very much for this excellent program! I'm happy to say that I finally passed the MFT Clinical Vignette Exam. I took it before and missed it by 1 point. I studied through GGS. I found that they had great study materials, but I cannot say the same about the testing techniques. I really appreciate your frames and lectures.  Without the frames and vignette notes suggestion, I do not think I would have passed the exam. You teach this course with so much confidence and knowledge. From the beginning of the program until the end, I knew I was in good hands with your program. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  I will definitely recommend your program to other colleagues. Once again, thank you so much for helping therapists pass and get the acknowledgement we deserve as licensed clinicians.

I passed! After using another company's study system and being completely overwhelmed I was happy that someone told me about the the Therapist Development Center. I felt more focus and more prepared in less amount of time then I had already put into studying. Thank you!!

I missed the test by 1 point last year and had a false sense of confidence with another company based on test banks. With Therapist Development Center I not only felt confident while taking the test, I also learned so much from Amanda's study materials. I can't thank you enough for all the information you provided and I am looking forward to purchasing the next course material to pass my clinical exam and become a licensed MFT!

I couldn't be more happy...I just passed the Marriage and Family Therapy Vignette Exam!!!  I used one other test prep company throughout my studying process for the clinical vignette exam and was completely overwhelmed and frustrated with their study materials.  Their strategies made me anxious and and their materials had my head spinning in so many different directions.  I was encouraged by a friend, who had a similar experience with the other test prep companies, to buy TDC. After going back and forth with emailing Amanda, I finally decided to purchase their program; and I am SO thankful I did!  As soon as I listened to the first audio lecture I felt instantly relieved.  Amanda's audios are straightforward, honest and personable. They made the test feel so REAL and MANAGEABLE.  The structure, audio lectures, quizzes, mock exams and HW assignments are great! They build up your confidence, and they help you get in the mindset to take the exam...not memorize a bunch of material.  They rely on your clinical skills as a REAL person and help you take the test. I SOOO wished I used them for the first exam; even though I passed on my first try, I would have been much more confident and less anxious.  About two weeks after purchasing their materials I took the clinical vignette exam and passed!!! Amanda is wonderful and so was the coach I worked with, Robin!  Thank you so much TDC!  Looking forward to using you in the future!

I failed the exam last July after purchasing the Grossman materials. I felt so traumatized by the failure that I avoided retaking the test again until the 1 year deadline. My friend told me about your program and even though I had the other material, the auditory addition sounded very interesting to me. I put the Grossman material away and focused on your material ONLY for a 3-week period of time. I studied 2-3 hours per day at least 5 hours per week. I awoke this morning feeling confident yet nervous. I felt at ease and comfortable and most importantly COMPETENT the entire time. Getting ready to purchase the vignette materials now. Thank you.

Now passing both tests using your company I know there is no other company better. Test was difficult but I was more confident towards the end that I was going to pass. I can't thank you all enough for helping me become licensed !!!!!

There is no question that TDC works.  My usually disorganized way of studying was completely overhauled through a simple useful interface, a well-structured series of audio lectures, practice exams, and Amanda's frequent tips on the neurobiology of learning.   Most helpful to me were TDC's test-taking strategies which kept my anxiety in check.  A TDC coach guided me through a few final strategies a few days before the test.  I went into the exam armed only with a banana, apple juice, courage, and confidence.  A few hours later, I passed the Standard Written Exam on my first try.  Next stop, TDC test prep for the Clinical Vignette exam. Thanks, TDC!

I just wanted to share the great news that I passed the first portion of my MFT licensing exam (the written). I began studying with another test site but switched to TDC after coming across a video on youtube. Sooo happy I did. Amanda's tutorials really helped keep my studying focused and reduced my anxiety and studying so much information. I used her tips during the exam and even "heard her voice" talk me through some of the answers. I couldn't be happier and I just bought the study prep for the 2nd portion of the test. Wanted to say a BIG thanks and that I'm a believer. Good luck to everyone!

It has been a long road for me, for sure. Today, I passed the CVE and couldn't be HAPPIER! This test was hard and it took time and patience. Learning how to "reason" through the frames was very helpful, and was something I did not fully focus on before, when I failed. Amanda, your voice entered the room many times, and helped to straighten out moments of confusion. Time to celebrate, gotta go!!!!!! THANK YOU, AMANDA!!!!!!


I just became a licensed MFT! I highly recommended the TDC. Last year I bought study materials from another company and became so overwhelmed by the material that I stopped studying after only a couple of weeks. This year I used TDC. TDC is so organized and it made me feel so much more confident during the study process. I passed both exams on the first try in a 6 month study period. Thanks!
