Is it better to be dual licensed with an LPC and LMFT? A program I am looking at has a track that would make me eligible to sit for both license's, rather than just LPC.

You will not be paid more for being dual-licensed, and frankly no one cares in practice.

The one area that is IS beneficial is if you want to be a dually-licensed supervisor. There aren't a lot of those, so you can charge more and/or hold double the amount of supervisees.

I would tag on to Dance Dementia's comment that the main benefit would be supervising LMFT-associates and LPC-interns (or whatever your state calls them.) Also, if you ever wanted to pursue a PhD program you would be able to choose from Counselor Education or Marriage and Family Therapy if that is a goal of yours.
