Clinical Therapist (Full-Time)

South Valley Services (SVS) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide options to anyone who has experienced domestic violence. We provide counseling, case management, prevention, and shelter to help individuals and families build lives free from violence. Our programs aim to empower individuals to recognize their self-worth and develop the necessary skills to reach their full potential. SVS believes advocacy, prevention, and safety are the primary tools in eliminating domestic violence. To achieve this goal, SVS groups these three strategies into the following service areas:

  • The Sanctuary: provides shelter for women, men, and children seeking a safe place away from domestic violence
  • Community Resource Centers (CRCs): provide case management and supportive services from community-based locations to make accessing services more attainable
  • Prevention and Education: informs and educates the public regarding domestic violence and how to recognize, respond, and refer individuals who need services

POSITION:  Clinical Therapist

Clinical therapists provide mental health services to SVS clients who have experienced domestic violence. They offer individual, family, crisis, and group therapy for residents of the shelter and individuals in the community at one of our Community Resource Centers. For residential clients, the clinical therapists provide a level of emotional support needed during their time at the shelter and make appropriate referrals when they are ready to exit the program. Clients served through one of our Community Resource Centers are provided suitable referrals after a maximum of six therapy sessions.
