True North Therapy & Wellness – Seeking Mental Health Therapist

True North Therapy & Wellness, a mental health private practice located in West Des Moines, Iowa, is seeking candidates for the position of Mental Health Therapist.

About True North Therapy & Wellness: At True North, we believe in creating the culture of growth and possibilities for both our clients and clinicians. Our mission is to provide collaborative and compassionate care to our clients and bring those same qualities to supporting each other in our professional development. As clinicians, we strive to integrate our client’s unique needs and preferences with our knowledge of evidence-based interventions to provide exceptional care. Our vision (and the inspiration for our practice name) is to aid our clients in overcoming the barriers that stand in the way of living the life they would find most meaningful – truly living well by their own definition of the word – and being a small part of sending that ripple out into the world. We value collaboration; ongoing learning, growth, and development; compassion; authenticity; creativity; and humor.

  • Ability to be available 36 hours/week for client scheduling and to complete 25 client sessions/ week. Some weekday evening hours (after 5pm) will be required
    Strong written & verbal communication skills and excellent interpersonal skills.

  • You are committed to ongoing personal and professional development, and in providing evidence-based, high-quality client care
  • You are energized by helping others and contributing to the growth of True North Therapy & Wellness. While those who aspire to have their own private practice one day are encouraged to apply, please do not apply if you plan to do so in the near future. We dedicate a lot of time to our work family and strive to provide as much flexibility and autonomy as possible for clinicians to be creative in their role while contributing to our overall mission.
