Seeking Licensed Child and Family Therapist

PEAK Exceptional Services is a multidisciplinary private practice with a focus on providing comprehensive assessment and support services to children, adults, and their families. We specialize in working with individuals who are gifted or twice-exceptional, have ADHD, learning disabilities, and/or other challenges that interfere with them reaching their full potential. Our main office is located in Northglenn, near I-25 and 120 th . We are hiring an experienced Licensed Child and Family Therapist (LPC, LCSW, LMFT, or Licensed Psychologist) to join PEAK as a staff member who will provide comprehensive counseling and family consultation within our specialty practice.

The right candidate will be able to focus on what they do best – providing excellent care to their clients. You get to work in a specialty private practice setting, and we will provide referrals, office space, marketing efforts, administrative support, mentoring and/or supervision – absolutely everything you need to operate in an established private practice.

We are looking for someone who is interested in becoming an integral team member in a collaborative group private practice environment, but who doesn’t want to deal with the expenses or administrative aspects of opening or running their own practice.

This will begin as a part-time position and increased hours are available as your caseload grows. The position is an excellent fit for a therapist who is looking to transition out of agency work or who is comfortable working part-time while building a caseload of private pay clients.

Your Duties

  • Provide comprehensive, compassionate, and strength-based counseling services to gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) children, children with ADHD, LD, and other social-emotional issues, and their families.

  • See clients flexibly from 10 hours up to full time hours per week. Must be available at least two late afternoons/evenings (after school hours) during the week. Saturday availability is a plus.
  • Learn and use electronic systems for scheduling, documentation, phone, and billing.
  • Participate in networking and other activities to help promote yourself and your expertise and PEAK’s services.
  • Commitment to ongoing professional development and honing your skills as a gifted/2e specialist, and collaborating as needed on cases.

Your Required Skills and Qualities

  • Must be a licensed child therapist (Ph.D. or Psy.D., LMFT, LPC, or LCSW). Early career therapists who are interested in developing a specialty in working with gifted and 2e children are welcome to apply.
  • Must have experience with, and a passion for, working with young children (ages 4 to 10) and their parents/families. You will have the opportunity to work with clients of all ages; however, we are specifically looking for someone who is highly skilled and comfortable working with our younger clients.
  • Must have at least a basic understanding of the unique needs of gifted and twice-exceptional individuals, and a desire and willingness to develop this as a specialty, as well as a receptiveness to be supervised and mentored around this aspect of practice.
  • Background/training in systems perspective and a commitment to collaborating and working extensively with parents/guardians and the family system to change dynamics that are contributing to or maintaining behavioral/emotional problems in one or more family members.
  • Practice with integrity and ethics. Know your competencies and limitations and refer to a team member and/or consult when needed.
  • Cannot be currently in private practice on your own, or must be no longer interested in being on your own.
  • Must be VERY competent with technology and own a smartphone
  • Mature, grounded, dependable and responsive.

Additional Desirable Qualifications

  • Experience working in or with school systems. Understanding of 504/IEP plans.
  • Experience with Dr. Ross Greene’s Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach. Willingness to be trained in and incorporate this approach into your clinical work with families.

  • Experience offering groups – particularly social skills groups – and a passion for developing offerings pertinent to our unique client needs
  • We encourage and welcome applications from therapists who are gifted (or 2e) themselves or who have experiences with a gifted/2e child or family member
