Our programs specialize in treating struggles associated with adoption, developmental trauma, anxiety and addiction. We serve preteens, teens, young adults and families in three U.S. locations: the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin, the majestic Cascade mountain range of Central Oregon, and northern mountains in Georgia.
The core purpose of NVW is to Profoundly Change Lives and Create Joy. Our company core values are Empathy, Service, Trusting Relationships, and Growth. We have a dynamic, fun, and enthusiastic team and the Lead Field Therapist is a key driver of our culture. We offer a competitive salary (negotiable) and robust benefits package (health insurance, life insurance, dental and vision insurance, 401k plan, paid time off, and more!). NVW believes in providing high quality, innovative treatment within a compassionate environment. Building healthy relationships with our students and their families is a special focus of ours.
