Williams College is pleased to announce an opening for a Staff Therapist. This is a full-time, fully-benefitted, 10-month regular position, primarily based on site in Williamstown, MA, with the possibility of some remote hours by arrangement. We are also open to those seeking less than full-time schedules.

Constituted by an interdisciplinary team, IWS staff therapists use a variety of theoretical orientations and integrate multiple psychotherapeutic modalities while focusing on enhanced equity and justice-focused practices across all efforts. IWS embraces a holistic model of student wellbeing (heart, mind, body and spirit) and collaborates with Health Services, Chaplain's Office, Davis Center diversity, equity, and affinity-based programming, Dean's Office, and colleagues from the VP of Campus Life Department to support the whole student. In addition to providing college-aged students with confidential clinical mental health services, therapists offer groups, psychoeducational workshops and special events focused on cultivating student thriving and a culture of wellbeing on campus.

IWS therapists also serve as teaching faculty within the IWS Training Program, a multifaceted training program for post-graduate fellows, practicum students, and interns from a variety of mental health disciplines. Staff work with trainees to explore creative and systemic opportunities for student support and practice integrating emerging evidence-based intervention methods (e.g. mindfulness practices). Together, the IWS team works to recognize, understand, and collaboratively meet the dynamic needs of Williams' diverse student population.

The IWS team encourages candidates from historically excluded and underrepresented groups and those with a demonstrated interest in diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice, to pursue this position.
