This team is comprised of one Community Support Specialist and two Supported Employment Specialists. We are looking for an experienced BA/BSW or MA clinician to step into the CSS role.

If you have a strong recovery-oriented approach, are very self-motivated and independent, well organized, and enjoy a greater proportion of office-based clinical work (treatment planning, assessment, solutions-focused counseling) with some community-based work this may be a good role for you.

Qualifications and Strengths:

    BA with a minimum of one year experience in behavioral health care; Confident and autonomous practice and care planning; Positive attitude and strengths-based approach to care; Strong writing and communication skills

Candidates must have a reliable vehicle and a clean driving record, as well as pass a background check. Those applicants with an MA in Counseling or an MSW must have a DC graduate professional license in hand (LGPC or LGSW) before they can commence employment. We offer supervision towards independent clinical licensure and excellent benefits package.
