RECLAIM is hiring for a full-time Mental Health Supervisor and Therapist, a full-time Mental Health Therapist, and a part-time Post-Masters Fellow

RECLAIM increases access to mental health support so that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) youth may reclaim their lives from oppression in all its forms. We partner with queer and transgender young adults ages 13-25 who are marginalized because of their gender identity, gender expression and/or sexual orientation. We provide accessible therapy to youth and their families, cultural competence training to practitioners, and community partnership at the intersection of gender and racial justice. We currently serve about 50% youth of color and 90% transgender youth, the majority from the Twin Cities metro area. Now in our 10th year, RECLAIM is growing in response to the need in the communities we serve.

1. Mental Health Supervisor and Therapist

The Supervisor is someone who is passionate about the mission and values of RECLAIM. We are building a community of emerging and experienced practitioners who apply post-modern principles to their practice. We engage clients in holistic healing that addresses as many areas of need as possible. We specialize in supporting youth around sexual orientation and gender identity while recognizing all aspects of identity reclamation. RECLAIM is committed to recruiting candidates with lived experience in communities of color and transgender communities.

Supervisors are responsible for overseeing the progress in mental health for clients. They are tasked with interacting with clients and their families on a regular basis to provide advice for improving their conditions, as well as supervise and lead the program team to verify that all health tasks are completed correctly and on time. 

They work closely with psychologists, counselors, and other community leaders to provide client support, and also manage calendars and schedules for improved organization and response times. Supervisors use computers to record their progress, respond to inquiries, and develop programs for later implementation. Supervisors should have advanced interpersonal skills to communicate in a simple and clear way about clients' health. They also provide therapy services to specific patients based on their requirements and must follow strict safety and privacy protocols to prevent accidents and privacy breaches that could affect the mental health processes in course.
