Position Title: NewPath Restoration Project (RP)Full-Time Therapist


NewPath Mental Health Services (formerly known as Christian Recovery Counseling) is a Rule 29 nonprofit community mental health clinic. While our agency specializes in treating issues of trauma, neglect and abuse, we also provide generalist mental health services for a variety of presenting concerns including, but not limited to, mood disorders, personality disorders, and relationship concerns. Additionally, we have a robust and effective intensive outpatient program treating men who have engaged in sexual offenses or harmful sexual behaviors (the Restoration Project- RP).  We are seeking a full-time licensed therapist to work within our RP program and also to see non-RP clients at our Golden Valley office.

Ideal candidates will have experience working with clients with sexual offenses, running therapy groups, and/or with clients involved in the legal system. NewPath Mental Health Services is an agency that embraces our clients’ spiritual or faith backgrounds, and, if clients choose to do so, we honor their desire to bring this element of their experiences into therapy.

The therapist who accepts this position will be expected to have approximately 32 available client hours per week (to account for no shows and cancellations) and to work at least 1-2 evenings (until 8-9pm), or weekend day, per week. In this role you will build and maintain a caseload while designing and implementing treatment/interventions reflective of identified client needs. Other duties include: quarterly meetings with clients within the RP program and their probation officers, maintaining organized electronic out-patient records in accordance with treatment policy requirements; attending and participating in clinical staff case consultation meetings; and following NewPath’s policies and procedures.
