Career Opportunities

Desert Wise will always have a spot for mental health providers who are a good fit for our team culture and who have a specific interest in serving our military-connected population.

We hire both independently licensed providers and pre-licensure supervisees, and we can work with you to determine if direct employment (i.e., W-2) or contract work (i.e., 1099) is the best fit for you.

We place an unparalleled emphasis on maintaining a safe, supportive, learning-rich environment, and we welcome you to talk privately with any of our staff members to get the real scoop on what it’s like to work here.

Ideal candidates for Desert Wise are compassionate, psychologically flexible, self-regulated, and have impeccable integrity.

  • We are particularly interested in candidates that are military veterans and/or current or former military spouses.
  • We are also enthusiastic about civilians who are passionate about our population and are a good fit with our group’s values and ethos, as described here.
  • We are now officially a DoD authorized industry partner for the SkillBridge program!! We are accepting SkillBridge applicants who are existing mental health professionals and applicants with an advanced education in mental health who are pursuing new careers in mental healthcare following their military service.

Note: We do not charge our supervisees for supervision! We currently have two providers (i.e., an LCSW & a psychologist) who are board-approved supervisors with the NM Board of Social Work.

We are proudly an interdisciplinary clinic and will consider candidates of all credentialing types (e.g., LCSW, LPCC, LMFT, LMHC, PhD, PMHNP, MD, DO).

Desert Wise provides both telehealth and in-person services, which allows flexibility for individuals interested in joining our team. We welcome providers who prefer to work 100% virtual.
