About Reaching HOPE


Reaching HOPE is a nonprofit dedicated to providing therapeutic services to individuals and families who have been impacted by trauma. Reaching HOPE offers a wide range of trauma-informed services aimed at creating a healthy, happy, and well-resourced community. These programs include Wellness & Prevention, Trauma Recovery, Evaluations, and Training & Supervision. Our philosophy is that healthy relationships heal and keep us safe. As such, Reaching HOPE offers a unique family systems approach aimed at bringing together safe family members in a time of need to support one another in the healing process. Reaching HOPE also supports helping professionals in building their resilience and reducing burnout and vicarious trauma.

Reaching HOPE specializes in treating complex trauma and helping families end intergenerational cycles of trauma. We have developed an innovative and successful therapeutic model for complex trauma recovery in family systems that utilizes a dynamic treatment team approach. All staff provide therapeutic work using the Reaching HOPE model for family recovery—a phase based approach that is grounded in evidenced based practice. Throughout all phases of treatment, all members of the treatment team actively participate in and collaborate during intake, individual, and family therapy sessions in order to model healthy system functioning for our families. Reaching HOPE treatment teams demonstrate to clients healthy team communication with equal verbal representation of all therapist voices, empowered therapists who can advocate for their individual client in family sessions and team meetings, and collaboration among individual therapists to achieve what is healthiest for the family system. Staff psychologists must actively participate in all clinical and team settings by verbally contributing ideas, striving for successful team dynamics, offering unique perspectives, and supporting teammates.

We are a friendly, enthusiastic, and passionate team of psychologists who are seeking a new member to join our team. We are seeking a licensed psychologist or post-doc, who specializes in childhood trauma.We would train the right person to join our team.

The right candidate will be comfortable working with significant trauma, skilled at self-care, and ready to join a team of psychologists who are passionate about trauma work and value a healthy work-life balance. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply.
