Relate has been a leading provider of psychotherapy to the Western Twin Cities communities for more than 50 years. Our team of 90+ professionals work together to create an agency culture that promotes inclusion, connection and engagement. Relate is an Equal Opportunity Employer and applicants of diverse backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply.

Relate is currently hiring for the following positions:


School-Based Therapist

We are seeking qualified psychotherapists to provide co-located therapy in the following school districts: 

  • Eastern Carver County (Elementary and Middle School Level) 
  • Minnetonka (Elementary and Middle School Level) 
  • Orono (Elementary and Middle School Level) 
  • Hopkins (Junior High)  
  • Mound (Elementary, Middle and High School) 
  • Saint Louis Park (Elementary Level) 

School-based therapy is a unique opportunity to provide mental health services to students in their school buildings. This model reduces barriers related to finances, transportation, stigma and other systemic issues related to access to mental health care.  

School-Based Therapists have an identified caseload of students. They provide individual therapy to and work collaboratively with school systems to support these students. School-Based Therapists may also provide training to teachers, give presentations in classrooms and provide other identified services to support healthy school systems.  

School-Based Therapists will work in one school district at either one or two schools.
