PCS is seeking a passionate full time outpatient therapist to join our team! This position would focus on a specialized caseload of clients where you would manage the sex offender treatment caseload. There are currently just over 50 adult clients in the SO program; with the bulk of those being seen in a group setting. We currently utilize the Road to Freedom by Morin and Levenson as our primary curriculum. While there are not currently juveniles in our SO program, that is certainly an opportunity for growth!

Clients involved in the program are primarily from the state and Franklin County criminal justice system. Interaction and communication with probation/parole officers is an integral part of the program. Regular updates and communication to the SOAB board for SVP clients is also required. While the position is challenging from the clinical perspective, it also requires strong organization and communication skills in order to provide timely reports and information. 

Groups typically run Monday through Thursday with evening sessions occurring on Thursdays and Tuesdays. There is also one "specialty group" occurring off-site at the South Mountain Restoration center.  Since PCS is an approved SOAB treatment provider, we adhere to their treatment standards for SO services.

Supervision is provided via an onsite clinical supervisor in individual sessions, group supervision with the local outpatient office, as well as monthly SO specific supervisions that may take place via conference call or in person. We encourage regular attendance at all SOAB trainings (typically offered quarterly) as well as the onboarding training provided to all PCS therapists. 

In addition to the sex offender caseload, clinicians often have additional clients who are MH/DA to round out their weeks. 

We are seeking passionate and caring unlicensed outpatient therapists to join our team and help children, adults, and families discover their greatness, overcome obstacles on their path to recovery, and facilitate healthy habits and relationships. Pennsylvania Counseling Services provides individual, family, and group outpatient therapy for mental health and addiction issues.  Our therapists draw on their educational background, skills and expertise as well as that of the treatment team to provide effective treatment that recognizes the needs of the client and helps them move forward in their life.  We believe in growth, optimism, hope, healing, and serving the underserved. 

Full time clinicians work Monday through Friday including 2 evening shifts which would involve running groups. The schedule is flexible allowing clinicians to set their daily schedule.  EOE.
