Clinical Staff Positions
Coldwater Counseling Center is a non profit organization whose primary mission is to provide depth psychotherapy--that which takes into account the reality of an unconscious psyche--to the community at affordable rates. Another part of our mission is to provide education and training in the practice of depth psychotherapy to those on our staff who provide these services. We have certified Jungian analysts and analytically oriented therapists associated with us who provide supervision that integrates the approaches of depth psychology to clinical practice.
Therapists who have had their own analytical work and continue to be in some form of analysis or depth psychotherapy that is acceptable to CCC may qualify for a staff position at Coldwater Counseling Center. The training part of our mission is designed to provide therapists who have been in some form of their own depth psychological process the opportunity to integrate this experience into their ongoing clinical work with patients.
Because we offer our services to the community on a sliding scale basis in order to make them as affordable as possible to the public, a staff position does not offer significant financial reward. Those who work for us are augmenting their private practice or other employment for the primary purpose of gaining further clinical experience and analytic supervision as well as some additional income. Our supervisors provide their services to us at a reduced rate.
Often we have MFT or LCSW Associates apply for staff positions as well as licensed therapists. Associates who have been in and continue to be in their own analytical work or depth psychotherapy process may thus qualify to be on staff. Coldwater Counseling Center employs qualified associates as a part of its staff to assume caseloads as our licensed therapists do. The understanding is that any person joining our staff as an associate makes a commitment to our patients as a member of our staff that continues when the associate becomes licensed. (We do not accept trainees unless they have completed their degree and are close to becoming an MFT or LCSW Associate.)
If you are interested in working at Coldwater Counseling Center, please send a resume and cover letter to Coldwater Counseling Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cover letter can be from one to two pages and should describe how you became interested in depth psychology, how you came into you own analytical/psychotherapeutic process, some of the issues and themes that you have addressed, and how you envision yourself as a practicing therapist in the future.
