Job Description

About the Company:

Access to high quality care is one of the biggest challenges in behavioral health; as the stigma associated with behavioral health conditions decreases, and as awareness rises, providers are facing increased demand for services. To help address this challenge, Beacon Care Services is focused on providing high quality direct clinical services and setting a standard for evidence-based care in behavioral health treatment.

About The Position:

We are seeking a dynamic mental health therapist to support a start-up practice at a primary care clinic operating in a large retail setting.  We are looking for a licensed therapist that would provide care through telehealth and video conferencing software.   This unique opportunity offers the chance to build a diverse patient base through the connection to the retail clinic.  The therapist will provide assessments, referrals, triage, treatment, and will collect sufficient data to make an appropriate referral. 

This is an excellent opportunity for career growth; it is the first program in a new venture that has the potential to expand quickly to additional primary care and other clinic sites within the region. 

Position Responsibilities:

  • Formulate independent psychosocial diagnosis
  • Partner with patients to develop person-centered treatment plans
  • Provide brief behavioral interventions using evidence-based techniques such as crisis intervention, behavioral activation, problem-solving treatment, motivational interviewing, or other treatments as appropriate
  • Join clinical rounds with primary care clinic’s medical staff
  • Coordinate with other clinicians within Beacon, the primary care clinic and within other facilities/agencies (e.g., health plan care managers) to ensure that the patient’s comprehensive treatment needs are met
  • Systematically track treatment response and monitors patients (in person or by telephone) for changes in clinical symptoms and treatment side effects or complications
  • Support psychotropic medication management as prescribed by medical providers, focusing on treatment adherence monitoring, side effects, and effectiveness of treatment

Position Requirements:

  • Working knowledge of differential diagnosis of common mental health and/or substance abuse disorders, when appropriate
  • Working knowledge of evidence-based psychosocial treatments and brief behavioral interventions for common mental health disorders, when appropriate (e.g., motivational interviewing, problem-solving treatment, behavioral activation)
  • Extensive knowledge of community resources/services
  • Demonstrated ability to collaborate and communicate effectively in a team setting
  • Basic knowledge of psychopharmacology for common mental health disorders that is within appropriate scope of practice
  • Strong orientation to a person-centered experience of care 
  • Knowledge and experience using management information systems, including EMR, word processing, and spreadsheet applications (Microsoft Word and Excel experience preferred)
  • Education: Master’s Degree in a behavioral health-related field and licensure as health professional is required.
  • License: Current, valid and unrestricted license in a State or territory of the United States in a mental health field (Ph.D., LCSW/ACSW, LLP, MHC, LPC, etc.).

Relevant Work Experience: Minimum of three (3) years of clinical experience in a behavioral health setting/managed care experience. Outpatient care with brief solution focused training strongly preferred.   Experience in chronic disease management and health promotion preferred.
