Primary Therapist

Outstanding residential treatment center seeking a Primary Therapist to work in Beautiful Cache Valley

Avalon Hills is a privately owned residential treatment center specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and co-occurring mental and physical health conditions. Physically located in an area surrounded by magnificent mountains, Logan, Utah provides ample educational, cultural, sporting/recreational options, while retaining safety and a small town feel with an affordable cost of living. Our treatment is guided by a core philosophy: Treat to Outcome. Simply put, this means that there is a commitment to positive treatment outcomes that are sustainable when our clients step down to a lower level of care.

We recognize that a variety of different treatments provided by effective therapists might be used in the recovery process. We support evidence-based practice that is grounded in a transtheoretical approach. We expect the selected candidate to be able to understand that different clients might require different theoretical approaches. Further, the integration of applied neuroscience such as heart rate variability, biofeedback and neurofeedback is foundational in Avalon Hills’ use of a transtheoretical model to guide treatment.

We understand the value of clinical experience to provide high quality care. More importantly we want to ensure that the financial needs of our professional staff are met, so their energy is focused on where it matters most, on patient care. As such, the starting wage for our therapists range from approximately $40,000 - $104,000 depending on the applicant’s clinical background, work experience, and licensure status. We also have a full-range selection of benefits including health insurance, 401k, profit sharing, company funded life insurance, long-term disability coverage, and more.

REQUIREMENTS
The qualified applicant will possess a PhD, PsyD, MFT, MSW, or CMHC, and be Utah license eligible. The candidate will be internally-motivated and possess a desire to join a diverse treatment team of individuals focused on making a difference by creating positive long-term recovery outcomes.
