Trauma Fellowship

one year/ full-time/ salaried training position

Who is this program for?

This program is a training opportunity for provisionally or fully licensed therapists who share our commitment to trauma-informed care. We are looking for those who value practicing in community with other clinicians, and wish to deepen into their practice by seeing a full caseload of clients at our offices while receiving supervision and training from our staff. The fellowship is a one-year commitment and the start date is flexible.

We welcome and encourage clinicians of all races, abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations to apply. We believe that being a trauma-informed therapist necessarily includes understanding and challenging the systems of oppression that harm individuals and communities, and we work continually to maintain a workplace that is equitable and supportive to all.
