Therapist-Program Consultant 

Full-Time/Part-Time Full-Time  
Exempt/Non-Exempt Exempt  

Looking for a seasoned LCSW or Psychologist to provide program consultation and ultimately therapy to individuals who are traditionally treatment-resistant and may be dually-diagnosed in an effort to mitigate behaviors that adversely affect ability to remain in the community setting.

If you are a Psychologist or LCSW licensed in the state of Nevada and the best of the best, do we have a place for you with our team! As a member of a three-person team, you along with an intensive case manager and a psychiatric RN will:

  • Identify and contact patients that may have stopped participating in treatment and services in an effort to re-connect them to services at HOPES or to provide therapeutic treatment in the community setting.
  • Cultivate other opportunities for individuals to become involved in treatment options and wrap around services such as through the Community Court or partnering with other community organizations serving the SMI or dually-diagnosed population.
  • Implement therapeutic interventions, motivational interviewing, harm reduction and referral to meet the needs of identified patients to help them remain in the community setting as opposed to inpatient treatment or incarceration. You’ll document interventions, complete Legal 2000 and maintain program data to support efforts.
