All the benefits of private practice, but with great colleagues, and none of the hassles…

Come join us! Based in Brattleboro, Vermont, InnerWell is a specialty counseling center, focusing on couples counseling and relationship issues. We are looking looking for a talented, passionate couples therapist to join our growing team.

Our approach is collaborative, integrative and empowering, and is rooted in adult attachment theory and proven approaches to relationship wellness and integrative healing. We work primarily with high functioning couples and individual adults, providing fee-for-service outpatient therapy. While this particular position emphasizes couples therapy, a mixed caseload of couples and individuals is possible for therapists with appropriate training and experience (see details below).

InnerWell’s services include:

  • Couples Therapy, focused on helping couples come together to shift their underlying patterns and create positive lasting change for secure, loving connection
  • Discernment Counseling, a powerful, short-term structured clarification process for mixed-agenda couples on the brink of divorce
  • Integrative Individual Therapy for adults and older adolescents

Position Description

InnerWell is looking for a compassionate, articulate, highly skilled therapist to join our vibrant and growing group practice. At this time, we are looking for a full-time therapist.

262westernDemonstrated experience and a passion for couples therapy is a must. We are looking for a grounded, seasoned therapist who is still passionate about learning and continuing to expand his or her repertoire and continue growing as a practitioner. The right candidate will possesses personal maturity and self-awareness, and preferably have significant personal experience with mindfulness practices and body-mind integration.

Training/certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy and/or Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy are a plus, as is Sex Therapy training/certification (AASECT). All candidates should have significant experience working with higher-functioning individual adults and couples on relationship issues, and comfort and experience with people of diverse sexualities and genders. Those wanting a caseload including individuals should be grounded in one or more experiential, mindfulness-based, neurobiologically-informed approaches such as Internal Family Systems, EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Hakomi or AEDP.

On a philosophical level, we are looking for someone who looks through a lens of health and wellness and secure attachment versus pathology. We believe that people respond to the circumstances of their lives and relationships in ways that may no longer be serving them well, but that there is almost always some hidden logic in even the most troublesome of patterns. We help our clients bring compassionate curiosity to their difficulties, and help them create shifts from the inside out, using a respectful, integrative, mindfulness-informed approach. If that sounds like a good fit for you, we encourage you to apply!
