The University of Virginia's Department of Student Health and Wellness, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is seeking to hire a full-time licensed mental health professional for the position of staff psychotherapist.
We are a large center, serving both graduate and undergraduate students, and are committed to creating an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity and decreases barriers to help-seeking. We are looking for applicants who share these values.
Job responsibilities include providing triage, intake assessments, brief psychotherapy, group therapy, and crisis services (including occasional after-hours on-call coverage). In addition, the staff psychotherapist will provide culturally inclusive community outreach and may participate as a supervisor in CAPS’ APA-accredited doctoral internship in Health Service Psychology. This position will provide collaborative care with CAPS psychiatric providers and serve on an interdisciplinary treatment team. The position also includes facilitating referrals to mental health services in the community.
We seek individuals who are team-oriented, have strong communication skills, practice good self-care, maintain healthy boundaries, and possess the ability to manage a challenging workload while promoting a positive relational and organizational atmosphere.
