Job Description:

Many people like you, who have behavioral or mental health experience, are finding satisfaction in the non- medical counseling profession. Your education and experience can more effectively help people navigate life’s challenges when you’re not spending long hours completing billing and documentation, filing paperwork or sitting at a desk all day. The MFLC model emphasizes simple and easy documentation used for reporting activity only:

  • No long narratives to generate

  • No insurance to file

  • No progress notes

  • No treatment plans

Responsibilities include:

  • Work at installation Child Development Centers (CDCs) typically with children 0-5, before or after-school care centers for school-aged children, youth and teens on educational activities and appropriate developmental focus.

  • Build rapport with parents and families by attending events and creating education and awareness about the importance of counseling services.

  • Help children with transition adjustments, such as a new school and a new home.

  • Developing and/or using approved counseling, training and education programs and materials.

  • Communicating information regarding trends and issues at assigned installation to Team Leads.

  • Participating in regular in-service training or other contract activities as assigned.

Minimum Requirements:

  • A Master’s degree or higher in the Behavioral Health Professions (MS/MSW/MA/PhD)

  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CMHC), Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), or Licensed Psychologist in the state of Utah.

  • Licensure to practice at the independent practice level

  • Must be a U.S. citizen.

  • Must be able to pass a basic background check for employment, a Child National Agency Check and Inquiries (NACI/CNACI) clearance, commonly called a Public Trust clearance.

Counseling services are generally preventive in nature and address topics such as living conditions, life skills, relationships at home and work, stress management, adjustment issues, marital problems, parenting, fear, grief, loss and much more. Our counselors use their clinical skills and experience to identify high-risk behaviors and assist in referral for ongoing treatment and support.

While helping America's bravest and their families, MFLC counselors also benefit from:

  • Free work-related professional development courses.

  • iPad provided for easy digital reporting, with no PII or PHI.

  • Reimbursement for job-related license renewal fees.

  • Flexible 40-hour work weeks.

  • Paid federal holidays.

A career of purpose—serving our nation’s military children and families—is open for you, an empathetic, supportive and motivational licensed therapist who can proactively help military children overcome common challenges such as deployment of a parent, frequent relocation and emotional management.

Leidos partners with the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program to provide highly confidential counseling services and support to military service members and their families. Non-medical counseling is preventive in nature and aims to address and solve issues before they become more harmful problems.
