Joining Second Growth

We’re a fun, hard-working, intercultural team, collaborating with different strengths and specialties to foster experiences of compassion, courage, and creativity with both clients and colleagues. We hire people who live in the world through a social justice lens and examine how their own gifts, biases, training, experiences, privilege, activism, personal therapy, and leadership style impact their work. We enthusiastically welcome applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds, narratives, perspectives, and experiences who hold a kinship with bilingual, BIPOC, neurodivergent, LGBTQIA2S+, HAES, and inclusive communities.

Second Growth is an established and growing group practice in the Portland Metro area of Oregon, serving Oregon and Washington clients. Our vision is to see our community filled with purpose, passion, and compassion where all members are valued and have opportunities for contribution and connection. We exist to create social impact through therapeutic experiences, including counseling sessions, community events, educational workshops, group therapy, and working with organizations, community advocacy, and growing creative partnerships. 

We are hiring in three areas!

  • Program Lead for our newly launching Associate’s Program! A licensed supervisor with excitement and experience to supervise, mentor, teach, and train  4-6 newer clinicians in an annual cohort-style experience.
  • Licensed, full-time therapists (LPC, LMFT, LCSW) who will provide clinical counseling, community psychoeducation workshops, and group therapy as part of our therapeutic services. Nearly licensed? You’re included, too!
  • Soon to come, we will be accepting applications for our Associates Program – a step-by-step developmental journey specifically designed to support a small cohort of clinicians as they grow towards licensure. More to announce in May 2024! 

We are one of OHA’s culturally-specific designated sites and support affirming care for LGBTQIA+, neurodivergent, BIPOC, and HAES populations. We love the work we get to do with an incredibly diverse range of clients and serve couples, relationships, individuals, and organizations – primarily adults, navigating life events who have given us an invitation to come alongside them. We are a group that receives client trust as an honor and with a posture of stewardship and responsibility to support clients in the work that is theirs to do. From caseloads to events, workshops, groups, advocacy, and partnerships, our entire team is dedicated to supporting emotional wellbeing, destigmatizing mental health, and facilitating environments for growth.
