Employment Opportunities:


AZCFC has the following positions open:


  • Clinical Manager of Justice Services

  • DBT/Trauma Therapist

  • Expressive Arts Therapist

  • LGBTQ Gender Transition Therapist


AZ Center for Change is always looking for talented and qualified counselors to enhance our team.  We have a slightly different approach to hiring than most behavioral health agencies.  When we hire new staff, it is a mutually beneficial process.  We do not view our staff as “working for us”, rather we view them more as “let’s work together to create something and reach our goals.” 


How does this work?  Through our public and private contracts, staff and the agency work together to co-create specialty programs that are needed in our community. We also hire to fill positions in our existing specialty programs. We have full time and some contract positions available. There is a minimum revenue requirement for all staff.  This requirement is a dollar amount, not a “billable hour” amount.  Group services help to reach the minimum revenue requirement.


We encourage candidates with specialty training and services to apply.  If a candidate has a specialty that fits into our agency needs, mission, contracts and vision, that candidate may be asked to submit a program plan for the service along with a marketing plan to build the program.  We prefer proposed programs to include group, individual and family therapy.  The agency mutually participates in the marketing efforts through our existing advertising campaigns.

Internship Opportunities:


 Our agency is set up to take on a limited number of interns per year.  Because we are a small and unique agency, we screen interns very carefully to make sure they are able to function in our fast paced environment.  We also encourage our interns to participate in the agency as if they were a regular therapist.  Interns are given a lot of autonomy but also provided with close supervision and training.


We require that interns be available minimally 15 hours per week and can work minimally 4 or 5 hours at a time.  Evening and Saturday hours are offered on a very limited basis. Interns are required to make a minimum 6 month commitment.
