Child & Family Therapist - 2 positions open

Does your current career fuel your passion to support children and families? Would it be exciting to be part of a growing opportunity to help children who have experienced abuse, neglect, or trauma in all forms, to heal in connection with caring adults?

The Turner Family Counseling Center at Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers has recently moved to a larger location on our campus at 93 Silver Street so that we can serve even more children and families who need our help. The Counseling and Adoption programs have joined in a collaborative effort to bring an attachment based, trauma-informed, whole-child approach to children who have “come from hard places,” called Trust-Based Relational Intervention®, and will provide training in this approach to counselors ready to take on this incredibly valuable challenge. We are looking for full-time counselors who want to be part of our mission and are ready to jump in wholeheartedly to learn and grow with us. These children and their families need our help. Wouldn’t you like to be a part of bringing hope into their lives?

Our organization offers a welcoming environment, working alongside like-minded peers who care deeply about children and families and we provide regular training in areas of interest to our counselors. We became an Approved Provider of Play Therapy Education through the Association for Play Therapy so that we can bring play therapy training to our counselors right on campus, increasing our skills to work with children of all ages so that we provide the highest quality of treatment possible.

Qualifications: At least 2 years of experience in professional counseling with children and families. Experience in working with young children is desired as well as a personal interest in increasing skills in play therapy, and other evidenced-based models of treatment, including trauma-focused approaches. Benefits Competitive compensation package including paid Holidays, Vacation, Sick and Personal Time, health insurance, dental insurance, incentives, company paid life and disability, and an opportunity to participate in a 403b retirement plan.

Education: Fully Licensed LCSW or LCPC preferred.
