Position Summary:                                                                                                                      

Position on a dedicated team of mental health professionals and practitioners specializing in providing therapy services to children, adolescents, and their families, in the environments where they live. Practitioners on the team provide clinical interventions under the supervision of a licensed mental health professional. The role of our program is to support children and adolescents and their families in their efforts for our clients to be maintained in the home, if possible, and in foster care or group home when necessary. Our clients are faced with various hurdles in their lives, including trauma, attachment difficulties, and other mental and emotional health struggles. FTP strives to implement a team-based approach to support the complexities of the clinical work done with our clients. This position requires services to be delivered in the community, at home, at school or elsewhere. It is a position that requires working closely with and being sensitive to relationships with local schools, and a variety of Washington County providers.  This position has a lower billable expectation than most positions of this type, is a full-time salaried position rather than being by billed services, and includes mileage reimbursement for travel to and from contacts with clients. The position includes a $400 annual training stipend, flexible hours set largely by the provider, and the possibility of supervision towards licensure depending on the license being sought and supervisor availability.



Masters or Doctorate Degree in social work, marriage and family therapy, or psychology with an emphasis on clinical practice. MN state license (or currently pursuing licensure) and eligibility to become a credentialed provider with insurance entities required (e.g., LP, LICSW, LMFT, LPCC). Experience delivering either in-home or crisis services preferred, as experiences working with trauma, attachment difficulties, emotional and behavioral escalations, and complex family systems. Experience with Electronic Health Records a plus. This position requires the use of a personal automobile for transportation and may require frequent use for traveling between office and clients' homes. An active driver's license and vehicle insurance per Canvas Health policy are required. The use of a cell phone is required for this position. Must be able to report to work on a regular and timely basis. This position requires some evening and on-call hours (phone response only approximately one week out of six).

For our staff, this foundation begins with our recruitment and onboarding process to ensure we attract excellent and diverse people who are prepared to contribute themselves and their interests to our agency's mission, values, operations, and programs.
