Clinical Therapist

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.
  • Clinical Department: offers therapy services to survivors of sexual and domestic violence. They work with adults and children and can meet virtually or in person. This service is open to anyone in the community, survivors do not need to be a shelter resident to utilize therapy services.
  • Prevention and Education informs and educates the public regarding domestic violence and how to recognize, respond, and refer individuals who need services.

Equal Employment Opportunity

SVS is an equal opportunity employer. We will extend opportunities to all individuals with-out regard to race, religion, color, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity), national origin, disability, age, genetic information, or any other status protected under applicable federal, state, or local laws. Our policy reflects and affirms SVS’s commitment to principles of fair employment and the elimination of all discriminatory practices. We strongly encourage people of color, people from historically marginalized communities, people with disabilities, and other people who would bring diverse experiences to our community to apply.
