Join Our Team

We are a vibrant community of therapists committed to the work of healing trauma with individuals, relationships, and across systems. We are dedicated to building an anti-racist, anti-oppressive workplace culture that privileges equity and honors diversity.

As a community, we are trauma-informed therapists who have a breadth of knowledge and experience in the treatment of trauma. We believe that part of sustaining ourselves in our work is feeling properly supported in both our lives and our clinical pursuits. We all participate in a weekly on-going consultation group, and we offer practice development consultation. Womencare also offers important benefits that are critical to supporting therapists.

Womencare Counseling & Training Center is growing, and we are looking for clinicians who are passionate about the work they do and the people they serve.  The ideal candidate has extensive experience in treating trauma, offers diversity to our staff, values communication, integrity and authenticity, and can work both independently and collaboratively within the group.  We encourage applicants who have or have an interest in developing a specialized clinical focus.

While Womencare is a private practice and not an agency, all therapists participate in the community of Womencare by attending staff meetings and group supervision, participating on committees, collaborating on cases, and also have the opportunity to consult and mentor.  We believe in a relational approach, both in our work with clients and in our collegial relationships with one another.

All therapists at Womencare are independent contractors however our practice offers important benefits critical to supporting therapists.
