Hiring - Mental Health Therapist

About Us

Lumen Therapy Services is looking to expand our team of compassionate and focused therapists. Specifically, we are looking for therapists who specialize in working with couples/relationships, individuals, and families with systemic and attachment-oriented approaches. Lumen Therapy Services offers an opportunity to be a part of an emerging team of diverse and culturally responsive therapists. We believe that all our parts deserve space to thrive to best meet the dynamic needs of our clients. We are committed to a diverse and inclusive practice for our clients and staff and encourage applications from therapists of color/therapists who are racialized and LGBTQQIPA+ therapists. If this piques your interest, we would love to connect with you.

We currently have full-time therapist positions for therapists interested in developing their advanced skills in relational and attachment-oriented therapies, including but not limited to an emphasis on Emotionally Focused Therapy. This is a hybrid position consisting of virtual and in person therapy session. Therapists will primarily provide couple/relationship, family, and individual therapy for people.

We offer administrative supervision and support for your growth as a therapist, including group consultation, in-service trainings, supplemental training budgets, and a collaborative team of motivated and supportive colleagues. To avoid dual relationships, our pre-licensed therapists secure additional outside clinical supervision for licensure and certifications.
