Strategic Therapy Associates is a family therapy agency that provides mental health and behavioral health services such as intensive in-home therapy, therapeutic day treatment services and outpatient therapy to at-risk children and their families.
We also provide mental health support services to adults with serious mental illness. Strategic Therapy Associates employs therapists, counselors, human services professionals and social work professionals who are interested in a unique, family-oriented/systems approach to working with clients, and who desire to help clients change the situations that maintain their involvement in the helping system.
A variety of problems are addressed, including abuse, neglect, court-related problems, and other mental health issues. Our goal is to prevent residential/in- patient placement and safely maintain clients in their homes and communities. We provided services in a 13 county/9 city area in Central and Southwest Virginia. Positions are available in Lynchburg, Roanoke, or Danville, Virginia.
We are seeking to add warm, creative and compassionate FAMILY THERAPISTS to our clinical teams. Family Therapists at Strategic do community-based work with at-risk children and their families in their homes helping to resolve the issues that are putting the children in an at-risk status, eliminating cause for out of home placement. They help empower families to resolve their own problems, and help restore appropriate hierarchy within the household, putting the parents back in loving charge of the children. We use the Strategic Family Therapy treatment model in our work with families, and clinical supervision is geared from that perspective.
