“This was the best work environment I could have hoped for. Everyone at MCAFT has been so kind and supportive. I really couldn’t have asked for a better place to work, learn and grow.” - Sarah Neiswender

Mindful Child & Family Therapy is committed to empowering children, teens, parents and families with tools to navigate the stress of life with a sense of competence and increased ease. Our clinicians help clients become more in touch with their deepest sense of self and feel more empowered to live an authentic and fulfilling life. We also equip clients and their families with effective communication tools to help nurture the most important relationships in their lives.

Our Mission

MCAFT’s mission is to promote emotional wholeness, interpersonal wellness and overall wellbeing in our clients. Our organization supports clients, therapists, and our greater community. In addition to supporting clients, we hope to help therapists be the best they can be, find their authentic expression as counselors and achieve their highest potential in serving others. We also provide our therapists with opportunities for self care, self growth and self discovery. We hope to make the community a better place by providing excellent therapy for our clients, facilitating Self-leadership, promoting positive interpersonal interactions and by offering educational / training opportunities to help everyone in the community learn and grow together.

We invite you to work with us

Our heart-centered group practice is looking for Associates (AMFT, ASW, APCC and Psychology Associates are all welcome) as well as Licensed therapists to join our warm and supportive team of clinicians. We offer flexible, part time work. Part time is anywhere from 15 to 30 face-to-face client hours per week, and therapists have a great deal of autonomy over their own schedule. However, we do ask for at least 8 after school hours (after 4pm) and/or 8 hrs on the weekend in order to support the high amount of children & teens referrals that come our way. Thank you for understanding that our minimum is 15 hours a week, with at least 8 of those hours after 4pm (divided up among multiple days) or on the weekend.

We care deeply about our clinicians

We treat our clinicians as people first, clinicians second. We encourage self-care and a healthy work-life balance. We help our therapists attune to their own internal systems as they support others. We encourage our therapists to continually assess their work-life balance so it is in alignment with their deepest values. We are deeply committed to helping our therapists grow - both personally and professionally.
