The Grounding Stone: Therapist Opening

The Grounding Stone: Therapist Opening

Supporting Non-Normative/LGBTQ2S+ Populations

We are welcoming another therapist to join our team here at The Grounding Stone.  We are a queer-owned, queer-run counselling center, and we provide counselling, groups and workshops to the community facilitated by a diverse group of therapists (including RCCs, RSWs and RPsychs).  We specialize in serving non-normative demographics, and we work through an Anti-Oppressive Lens with an ever-growing, acute awareness of privilege and oppression.

We are looking for someone who has a deep understanding of intersectionality and the nuances that exist within queer culture.  An additional understanding of ethical non-monogamy and/or religious trauma would be of benefit. Our clients come to us with an expectation of competency in these areas, so this person needs to have an embodied understanding of intersectionality and its potential impact on mental health.

Our intention is that the therapist who joins us will grow their practice in a way that really works for them in terms of work/life balance.  They will see clients between 3-4 days per week, and will receive $67.50-$70/hour, with a certain portion of their Counselling Practice offered on a sliding scale.  The number of clients who the therapist sees at a reduced rate is an unfolding conversation and it has a cap to ensure the therapist’s earnings support their financial needs.  We are looking for someone who aligns with our values of offering a sustainable portion of our time on a sliding scale to clients who face certain financial barriers, largely due to systemic discrimination.  At The Grounding Stone, this is a part of our lifestyle, our lens, and the way that we strive to pay the debt of our privilege.
