IHC Licensed Mental Health Therapist

Request for Services

Background

Real Escape from the Sex Trade was founded in 2009 by a small group of individuals who wanted to take action against the commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) of youth and adults in the Seattle area. Our mission is to provide pathways to freedom, safety, and hope for victims of sex trafficking and people involved in the sex trade by providing tailored services to meet their complex and specific needs. REST has become a haven for CSE survivors, allowing us to serve over 500 victims and survivors each year. REST is a Christian organization, dedicated to providing services to people of all faiths and backgrounds.

Survivors of the commercial sex industry often feel stigmatized when seeking treatment in the community. This can be a stumbling block for seeking care as they often avoid many health care settings, neglecting their mental and physical well-being until symptoms become severe and persistent. REST provides a non-judgmental space where individuals impacted by trauma can come to build community and begin setting goals for their lives. Because survivors feel safe at REST, they are more likely to engage in health services which are provided on-site than other, outsourced options. Therefore, REST has built a team of multi-disciplinary service providers who collaborate and provide immediate care for victims of CSE to continue our goal of providing low barrier, trauma informed services and increase opportunities for healthy living for every survivor that we serve.

Through a grant by PHPDA (Pacific Hospital Preservation and Development Authority), REST seeks to contract a part-time Mental Health Therapist to work in REST’s Integrated Health Clinic in collaboration with REST’s direct service teams to support the healing and empowerment of REST clients. The Mental Health Therapist will provide 1:1 and/or group-based services to participating REST clients. The Integrated Health Clinic is not a stand-alone clinic but works in an integrated manner within and among REST spaces and services so as to provide seamless access to care and consistency of support. The Mental Health Therapist will work out of REST’s Pathways Service Center, located in Rainier Valley.
