Licensed Counselor/Therapist

Job Description: Licensed Counselor/Therapist, Mental Health Therapist, CSW, LCSW, ACMHC, CMHC.

Green Willow Counseling is a small private practice located in Murray, Utah. We provide outpatient mental health services to individuals and families, and we specialize in helping survivors of trauma and sexual abuse. We also treat depression, anxiety and life adjustment concerns. We work with individuals of the LGBTQ+ community and offer support to those going through a faith crisis or transition. We believe that each of us has the ability to heal from the past and to lead a fulfilling life in the present. We use evidenced-based modalities such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), TF-CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and inner child work to treat symptoms of trauma. We also implement mindfulness and meditation in session with our clients. We believe that understanding the mind-body connection is crucial to healing.

This is an opportunity to work in private practice and gain crucial clinical experience through individual therapy and with the option to facilitate group counseling. New hire will be encouraged to find and grow within their niche and continue professional development. This is a part time position with the potential to build up to full time. Compensation is based on an hourly rate for sessions and is dependent on applicants experience, already established health insurance credentialing, licensure, and availability.

This is an excellent opportunity for a master's level recent graduate or for a more seasoned therapist looking for a small, collaborative work environment. If you work independently, desire more flexibility and yet want to be part of a supportive team, Green Willow may be a good fit for you.
