To cope with the stresses of an unstable economy, many families are turning to marriage and family therapists. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that nationally the number of marriage and family therapists will see a 14% increase by 2018. The growth in the field means a great number of career opportunities to those with degrees in marriage and family therapy.
In addition to the national growth of marriage and family therapists, working in the state of Hawaii offers an important financial incentive. The BLS reports that Hawaii’s average annual pay for marriage and family therapists is the highest in the country. The average annual wage here is about $25,000 higher than the national average.
