Seeking a Psychiatrist who will work alongside other dedicated professionals in a dynamic and exciting multidisciplinary team setting. Our team-based model of care centers on holistic person- and family-centered care that addresses all aspects of recovery. We incorporate evidence-based practices into our services including DBT, EMDR, and WRAP, among others, to assist our clients on their journeys through recovery. Our Psychiatrists provide assessments, education, and medication management services to clients with a broad range of clinical issues and needs. True to a multidisciplinary approach, this work is supplemented with team meetings and consultation opportunities with our primary care partners, through the Washington State Mental Health Integration Project.

We are particularly interested in Psychiatrists who enjoy providing education and leadership. Our philosophy of care on our Psychiatry team is that our first and foremost responsibilities are excellent diagnostic assessment and then education about holistic, best practice treatment options. This often includes medication treatment, but our psychiatry team also provides education about the variety of psychosocial interventions and works with our multidisciplinary teams to provide the most indicated and beneficial treatment. How nice it is to work at an agency that provides a suite of best practice, evidence based psychosocial interventions! In order to have time for education about diagnosis and treatment options, Psychiatry providers have 90 minute psychiatry evaluations and 30 minutes for follow up appointments. Psychiatrists also help provide supervision for our many excellent Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, and guidance to our multidisciplinary teams during our case consultation meetings.  We encourage our Psychiatrists to develop their areas of interest and play an active part in developing clinical programming.  We want to provide the most cutting edge, best practice care, and want to take advantage of our Psychiatrists’ areas of expertise. New and experienced Psychiatrists are welcome, most important is an interest in these areas.

In keeping with holistic and best practice care, we are seeking Psychiatrists who want to help provide Medication Assisted Treatment for Substance Use Disorders, including suboxone. The opiate epidemic continues to sweep our region, with tragic and sometimes fatal consequences. Valley Cities is committed to providing integrated Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder treatment. In addition to our long tradition of excellent outpatient community mental health care, we have state certified Chemical Dependency programs at our sites, and soon will be adding inpatient detoxification, inpatient psychiatry treatment, and 28 day inpatient residential services for Substance Used Disorders, all under one agency umbrella.
