PCS is seeking a passionate full time outpatient therapist to join our team to support those returning to the community following periods of incarceration or legal involvement in our York, Harrisburg, Lebanon, Pottsville and Columbia locations (additional locations may be available within Central Pennsylvania).
This position would focus on a specialized caseload of clients who have engaged in problematic sexual behavior. The bulk of this population is treated in a group setting and will include both adults and juveniles. PCS is an approved SOAB treatment provider and we adhere to their treatment standards for services. Clients involved in the program are primarily from the state and local criminal justice system. Interaction and communication with probation/parole officers is an integral part of the program. Regular updates and communication to the SOAB board for SVP clients is also required. While the position is challenging from the clinical perspective, it also requires strong organization and communication skills in order to provide timely reports and information.
Supervision is provided via an onsite clinical supervisor in individual sessions, group supervision with the local outpatient office, as well as monthly forensic specific supervisions that may take place via conference call or in person. We encourage regular attendance at all SOAB trainings (typically offered quarterly) as well as the onboarding training provided to all PCS therapists.
In addition to the sexual offender caseload, clinicians often have additional clients who are MH to round out their weeks. These clients will likely also be referred after a period of incarceration and/or involvement with the justice system.
We are seeking passionate and caring pre-licensed outpatient therapists to join our team and help children, adults, and families discover their greatness, overcome obstacles on their path to recovery, and facilitate healthy habits and relationships. Pennsylvania Counseling Services provides individual, family, and group outpatient therapy for mental health and addiction issues. Our therapists draw on their educational background, skills and expertise as well as that of the treatment team to provide effective treatment that recognizes the needs of the client and helps them move forward in their life. We believe in growth, optimism, hope, healing, and serving the underserved. Full time clinicians work Monday through Friday including 2 evening shifts which would involve running groups. The schedule is flexible allowing clinicians to set their daily schedule.
