Lead Therapist Application

More Info

Reports To: The Lead Therapist will report to the Retreat Leader.

Job Overview:  The Lead Therapist provides emotional and therapeutic support to guests during sessions, integration, and general interactions.

Responsibilities and Duties: While other team members may also be Therapists, there is only one Lead Therapist per retreat. Lead Therapist assignments are made on a retreat-by-retreat basis. The Lead Therapist must hold a valid and active license in Counseling, Psychotherapy, Clinical Social Work or similar designation.

Licensed Therapists who work as a Lead Therapist are responsible for rotations in screening incoming applicants for suitability in attending retreat in accordance with existing policies and procedures. This will include a review of applications submitted, follow up phone calls to obtain any clarifications, zoom conferences with guest and review of medications and medical history.

Coordinate retreat activities in accordance with scheduled itinerary and work closely with the Operations Team.

During Retreat:

Before Sessions:

  • Greet all guests upon arrival
  • Lead guided meditation prior to dosing session

During Sessions:

  • Ensure needs of the guests and Retreat Leader are met
  • Provide support to guests during dosing, with specific emphasis on the most difficult cases
  • Communicate with the Retreat Leader to ensure guest safety and to provide necessary information. The Retreat Leader is mobile, traversing the dosing space and observing each
    guest’s status. The Therapist will communicate updates to the Retreat Leader as he/she enters the Therapist’s area.
  • If a guest is having a challenging experience, it is the responsibility of the Therapist to assist. If the Therapist encounters situations that are beyond their expertise, they are to reach out to the Retreat Leader, without leaving the guest unattended. If the Therapist hears something from a guest that the Retreat Leader should know, they should communicate the information. This would include anything that indicates a guest is experiencing a challenging situation and requires additional support.

As with every team member, the Therapist is expected to be attentive and present during the entire session. The Therapist should not use their cell phones during the session or appear bored or restless. The role of the Therapist is to remain a calm, grounded presence for the guests.

Continually scan the environment to determine if any of the above responsibilities need to be completed.

During Integration Sessions:

  • Lead group integration sessions; take and type up therapy notes or assign to another therapist or senior facilitator (with the approval of the Retreat Leader).

During downtime outside of the sessions, the goal for the Therapist is to be present with the guests and to help create a friendly, nurturing environment.
