Albertina Kerr empowers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health challenges and other social barriers to lead self-determined lives and reach their full potential. When you join Kerr, you become part of a team motivated to provide innovative and excellent programs, services and care.

As a Child and Family Therapist, you'll coordinate and provide mental health treatment for children served in our Children's Crisis Psychiatric Care (Subacute) program to achieve the best possible outcomes, in the timeliest manner possible, and within the most efficient utilization of available resources. Additionally, you'll ensure clinical work actively incorporates client and family voice and choice, and complies with OAR, license and payer requirements.

Child and Family Therapist I does not require professional licensure and operates under the supervision of a licensed mental health practitioner (LCSW, LMFT, LPC). Pursuit and achievement of relevant professional licensure within three years of hire is a key requirement of the position—and, we’ll help you get there! Kerr provides supervision towards licensure. Our Child and Family Therapist II position requires licensure (LCSW for MSW degree holders, LMFT or LPC as appropriate for other clinical Master’s degree holders).
