KW Legacy Ranch has an immediate opening for a therapist. This is a full-time, salaried position with an opportunity to join a growing company. Come make a difference in the lives of teenagers and families by being a key part of a program that helps facilitate true change. KW Legacy Ranch is an independent, owner-operated program where you will be treated like family.
The primary therapist is a central figure in the treatment of each student and family at KW Legacy Ranch. You will be responsible for the assessment, treatment planning, therapy, and transition planning for each of your students. Clinical responsibilities include individual and family therapy, facilitating group therapy sessions, working closely with residential staff, and facilitating multi-family groups.
The successful candidate will possess a master’s degree in social work, marriage and family therapy, counseling or a closely related field. Experience in a therapeutic program is preferred but not required. Familiarity and/or experience with the 12-steps and Stages of Change is a plus. The successful applicant will also possess a high level of interpersonal and communication skills (both verbal and written), personal and professional integrity, strong computer and telephone skills, the ability to multi-task and have flexibility with scheduling. We prefer non-smokers.
KW Legacy Ranch is a “hands on” active environment. There will be plenty of time to participate in the ranch activities alongside the milieu in order to help in each student’s change process. Due to the active work environment, the therapist must be willing and able to meet with students both in an office setting and while participating in activities such as bottle feeding baby animals or riding horses.
KW Legacy Ranch is a small, co-education, therapeutic treatment program based on a working cattle ranch in Hiko, NV (about 100 miles north of Las Vegas).. The program uses a highly effective experiential approach in a comfortable home-style setting. With only about 20 students on the ranch at one time, KW Legacy Ranch offers completely custom-tailored treatment and extremely individualized attention. The ranch plays a major role in bringing about change within the students as they participate as active and important contributors to the overall success of the cattle and farm operations. We take great pride in the work we do and are looking for a therapist who will do the same.
