Position title
School-Based Therapist (In-Person)

As the need for youth therapy services continues to increase, we are finding that meeting this demand by providing mental health counseling in the school is beneficial and reduces the interference with extra-curricular activities and parents managing work schedules. Our school-based program is designed to offer individual and group therapy services to students at their individual schools during school hours.


Reporting to our Coordinator of School-Based Services, the School-Based Therapist is responsible for assessing, diagnosing, and treating clients experiencing mental health and psychological distress within the school setting.

Additional Responsibilities:

  • Providing evidence-based mental health counseling and psychotherapy to students.
  • Identifying culturally appropriate treatment to meet students\' experiences and individual needs.
  • Consulting with the school’s social worker(s), as appropriate, to ensure effective treatment for students.
  • Working with students to set SMART goals and develop individualized treatment plans.
  • Giving students adequate resources to gain insight through a strength-based approach to treatment.
  • Identifying social, emotional, and cultural barriers that may inhibit a student\'s psychological wellbeing.
  • Conducting group therapy sessions for students based on specific needs (e.g., anger management, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, etc.).
  • Referring students internally to an appropriate provider or externally to other health professionals.
  • Supporting students and/or parents in identifying additional resources in their local or online communities such as social services, job services, and support groups.

In order to be an approved Pillars Provider, we will need you to possess the following:

  • Valid mental health licensure LCSW, LMHC, LMFT, LCAC, LPCC, Clinical Psychology PsyD/PhD (independent or provisional)
