Full-time social worker or professional counselor
Feeling isolated in your private practice? Want to contribute to folks who would otherwise be unable to access therapy? The Women's Center is looking for full-time licensed therapists interested in creating a sense of community.
The mission of our counseling program, Room To Talk, is to provide a safe space for therapy and transformation for individuals across the gender spectrum. We specialize in empowerment, accept insurance (including Medicaid), and embrace diversity.
Our team members are trained in the latest evidence-based practices which we use within a trauma-informed framework. We choose to work together because we have a shared goal of meeting clients where they are, and value the continual learning and growth that happens through collaboration.
Room to Talk therapists share space at The Women’s Center of Southeastern Michigan, which is a nonprofit human services organization.
