Mental Health Therapist

  • 94 Pleasant St, Arlington, MA 02476, USA
  • Full-time

Job Description

Do you have a passion for working with survivors of interpersonal trauma? Would it be life-giving to work alongside other clinicians just as passionate about trauma work as you? We are looking for trauma-informed, social justice-minded, holistic and community-focused clinicians who will provide individual and some group and family therapy for trauma survivors within a newly-forming group practice team.

Survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and child abuse often struggle to find clinicians that "get it". You, on the other hand, are a clinician that understands the importance of moving beyond "just talk" to providing the kind of bottom-up care that helps survivors heal. You have training in EMDR, Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, or similar, or have an interest in obtaining specialized trauma training soon.
