A family counselor is someone that is trained and licensed, and can come from different training fields. These therapists can be known as marriage and family therapists, licensed social workers, family and child counselors, psychiatrists or psychologists. It could be stating the obvious that family therapists work with couples or families; however, they can also work with people individually.

 Family counselors can be found working in several different types of settings. Most of them are in private practice, whilst others could work in hospitals for the mentally ill. Some do not only offer counseling but can also teach and supervise other therapists. A public health system could employ family counselors, to offer counseling for families of low income or to shape public policies. There are several different ways a family counselor can do their job.

 The phrase family therapist does not exactly describe their job, few commit their entire practice to counseling. Most offer counseling to various people, in group sessions or for individuals. They have been trained in a school, and practice within counseling groups or counseling individuals.
