Licensed Therapist (pro-bono services)
Fighting for Me, Inc. would love to have you join our network of licensed professionals! We are looking for an experienced Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist interested in working with sexual assault and rape survivors. Experience with PTSD, sexual trauma, depression, anxiety, and suicide assessment is desired. Therapists will be responsible for providing pro bono counseling services and recording and maintaining progress notes and treatment plans/goals in FFM’s electronic health record system. Therapists may need to advocate for clients and collaborate with schools, social workers, doctors, law enforcement, and the court system. Therapists are required to have at least two (2) years post-licensure experience and provide evidence of professional liability insurance. Most importantly, therapists interested in this volunteer position will have compassion and a sincere interest in working with this population and our dynamic Fighting for Me team. There is no minimum client load required; seeing one or two rape/sexual assault survivors a year equals one or two survivors that might not otherwise be helped!
If you’d like to see the gift of your time and talents multiplied in the lives of sexual abuse survivors, we would love to hear from you!
