About

This is a private practice and is expanding to become a teaching clinic (similar to a teaching hospital) primarily for adult adopted people, where licensed clinical interns and mentored professionals will provide the vast majority of services, at a significantly reduced rate, using an intersectional and social justice lens. Therapy will initially be offered for people throughout the state of Texas, and eventually beyond. Special emphasis will be placed on oppression, eating disorders, suicidality, race and other minority status identifiers. Additional activities will include policy advocacy, professional training, and case consultation. Some clinicians provide general community mental health support.

Qualifications

Professional phone etiquette, strong written and verbal communication skills, customer service skills, patience for people who may be experiencing distress, ability to work with broad and diverse range of clients and team members, experience working with Microsoft Office and G-Suite.
