About the Job: Join a counseling team dedicated to person-centered and trauma informed principles and practice for employees as well as clients.

You will have a reasonable caseload with a supportive office staff to assist with billing and paperwork, flexible scheduling, great benefits, regular clinical supervision and educational opportunities, and work in the company of passionate, caring, diverse, and fun colleagues. Experience with children ages 8-17 a plus.
