16880-111 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB, T5M 4C9

We are currently seeking a part-time (15-25 hrs/week) contracted therapist to provide trauma-informed treatment for clients recovering from motor vehicle accidents. This position will require experience in working with or supporting stabilization, resourcing, and trauma reprocessing.

Full administrative support provided for coordinating appointments and communication among all treatment providers, in addition to frequent consultation support for charting and report completion (assessment of concerns/symptoms, progress, treatment goals, and treatment recommendations).

This position will likely expand into providing services for other client populations / concerns (e.g., insomnia, anxiety, burn-out, grief and loss, childhood trauma, life transitions, depression, suicidal ideation and risk management, racial trauma / discrimination, bi-cultural parenting / family difficulties, etc).

This is not an employee position.

Preferred shifts would be late afternoon, evenings, and weekends.

Potential candidates will have expertise in the areas of trauma, complex trauma, anxiety, depression, and interest in developing experience working with motor-vehicle accident recovery and workplace injury recovery (regular supervision and consultation will be available).
