Clinical therapist for all ages


Starting with the diagnostic interview, the Clinical Therapist evaluates a patient’s needs and develops a treatment plan with measurable goals. Sound interesting?

Lafayette East will be opening a Psychiatric Crisis Stabilization Unit in December. This is a 23 hour unit where people experiencing a psychiatric crisis are treated and stabilized in a compassionate environment geared towards people with mental health issues. The goal is to stabilize and discharge the patient with a care plan in place. If they are unable to be stabilized, they will be admitted to an inpatient psychiatric hospital. The model we are developing is modeled after the Empath units developed by Dr. Scott Zeller. It is an innovative concept and will be the first of such units in the state of Indiana.

We are trying to recruit Clinical Therapists to be part of the treatment team on the unit to help with assessments, providing therapy interventions, and helping develop care plans and assisting with placement for those we will be treating.
