The Institute for Family Development's (IFD) internationally recognized Homebuilders program has an opening for full-time, in-home therapists in King County, Washington. Homebuilders is one of the oldest “family preservation” programs in the country, and IFD is one of the leaders in home-based services for families.  As a Homebuilders therapist, you will work with only 2 families at a time, enabling you to provide intensive and responsive services to families with children at imminent risk of out of home placement, or children being reunified with their families.  We are the largest provider of in-home family counseling services in Washington State.  Our Homebuilders program is an "evidence-based program", and is being replicated across the U.S. and other countries. This is your opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families.


  •  A supportive team environment; excellent clinical supervision; licensure supervision; and comprehensive training, including at least 10 days of workshop training in the initial year (CEUs provided).
