Seeking Exceptional and Dedicated Couples Therapist

Colorado Couples & Family Therapy (CCFT), located in the heart of beautiful Washington Park in Denver, seeks to add a new member to our team in our highly successful therapy center. CCFT is looking for a licensed or pre-licensed marriage and family therapist to counsel couples, individuals and families in distressed and/or complicated relationships. Expertise must be with couples and families but we see many individual clients as well, so experience in other areas / modalities is definitely a plus.  However, this position is not for a “generalist”. We are looking for a therapist wanting to join a practice for the long term and continue to help build a successful relationship driven center.

The CCFT suite contains 3 beautifully furnished office spaces, a kitchen, and a large waiting room with a library of books. We provide private practice management tools for scheduling and we handle scheduling of new clients for you. CCFT is looking for an individual who wants to reap the benefits and rewards of a private practice without having to do any of the administrative work and having no financial commitments. CCFT generates client leads through advanced systems for SEO, networking, marketing and scheduling. Your job will be to provide the highest quality of care for couples, families and individuals. You will be a highly valued member of our team. We have consistently been voted one of the Top 3 Counseling Centers in Denver by ThreeBest Rated and Top 5 by LocalBest, Denver.
