Careers at CCIH

CCIH is currently accepting applications for an experienced staff therapist. Our Trauma Fellowship application is also open now.

The Chicago Center for Integration & Healing is a group practice of clinicians committed to trauma-informed care, and is a leader in providing training on trauma to mental health providers in the Chicago area.

At CCIH, we believe there is no one right way to be a trauma informed provider. We practice an integrated approach and support our clinicians in finding their own authentic approach to healing.
