WANT TO JOIN THE TRAILHEAD TEAM?
We are looking for motivated therapists who want to work with men.
CURRENT CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
We are currently searching for a 1099/Independent Contractor clinician who can fulfill one of the following needs:
Couples Therapist - trained in The Gottman Method or Emotionally Focused Therapy
Individual Therapist - experienced in working with Cluster B diagnoses, more specifically Narcissistic Personality Disorder, covert narcissism and/or narcissistic traits.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT OUR TREATMENT CENTER
At Trailhead Treatment Center, LLC, we specialize in treating men’s mental health issues. This often includes addressing complex trauma, issues related to gay and other sexual minority men, anxiety, depression, and the symptoms of what Terrence Real calls “covert male depression,” which often includes sexual addictions and compulsions, substance abuse, emotional numbness, rage, perfectionism, self-criticism, and some narcissistic traits.
As a treatment center, we do not discriminate based on race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender expression/identity. All candidates should be fully affirming of the LGBT+ community.
Sexual compulsion is the primary complaint of many referred clients we receive at this time, with frequent comorbidity of ADHD and narcissistic behavioral patterns. Any clinician interested in working at Trailhead must have previous experience working with sexual addictions and compulsion or be open to learning about these specific conditions.
We are open to and welcome other clinicians' specialties and interests under the umbrella of men’s issues. For instance, some of our clinicians focus specifically on young men while others focus on working with gay men. But understand that, due to our current referral funnel, you will most likely be receiving a large number of clients with sexual compulsivity.
All candidates must demonstrate the following characteristics:
Have a desire to specialize in working with men
Be an independently licensed clinician (LPC-MHSP, LCSW, LMFT, PhD, PsyD or equivalent)
Be trauma-informed (and ideally trauma-focused)
Be prepared to build client load from a combination of your own referral streams and those provided by Trailhead Treatment Center
Be available to complete a 40 hour, online Internal Family Systems (IFS) training within the first three months of working at Trailhead.
A commitment to using IFS or other parts-oriented work in their treatment of trauma (basic training and consultation provided.)
Demonstrate specialized training in a specific modality or have a plan and schedule to obtain specialized training or certification in:
Internal Family Systems
Acceptance and Integration Training
Accelerated Resolution Therapy
Emotionally Focused Therapy
The Gottman Method
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
or other similarly effective modalities
We are a small-but-growing clinical team of independent yet interdependent therapists working under a shared vision of healing men through specialized and intentional therapeutic care. We maintain this culture in the following ways:
We work hard not to pathologize clients and never label clients by their specific problem presentation.
We engage in ongoing connection opportunities. We strongly encourage formal and informal consultation between clinicians and are working to set up an ongoing clinical team meeting.
All clinicians working at Trailhead either have engaged or currently engaging in their own therapy. We know that we cannot help a client go where we have not been ourselves. This is why it’s so important for clinicians to be doing their own personal work and recovery. We intuit that the quality of treatment a clinician provides is connected to a clinician's own psychological health and well-being.
We’re honest with each other about shortcomings and missteps and are open to giving and receiving constructive feedback as well as encouragement.
We are honest and authentic with our clients, within the appropriate parameters of therapeutic “use of self.”
