Job Description:

We are seeking an energetic and dedicated Licensed Child Play Therapist to join our fun, connected, and positive-minded group of professionals. The ideal candidate enjoys working on a team, is organized, and is open to new experiences and learning new skills. They also have to be great with children and understand the unique ways to connect and communicate with them.

While our practice helps a wide variety of clients and diagnoses, we also specialize in working with families that are dealing with high-conflict divorce (i.e., checking in with the kiddos!). As we work with a lot of court-involved or court-ordered cases, we provide full in-house training on working with these cases and full support through every step of what may be an unfamiliar process! We are looking for someone passionate about working within a child-centered lens to prioritize children who may be hurting.

We are looking for someone willing to start part-time (15-20 hours per week, at 10-15 clients) and willing to grow into full-time (35 to 40 hours per week, at 25 -30 clients). We offer both salary and fee-for-service pay models to meet employees' needs. For licensed candidates, compensation ranges from $50 - $70 per hour (Depending on experience).

We are open to associate license-holding candidates who are attachment-based. For associates, compensation ranges from $30 - $45 per hour (Depending on experience).
