Join Our Team!

We are a community of collaborative, fun, curious, and caring people with differing identities and lived experiences. While our talents, skills, and specialties differ, 0ur common strength as a TEAM is our ability to re-imagine mental health care and how we operate. We are on a journey to include all team members in shared decision making, flatten hierarchy wherever possible, and serve clients in attuned, affirming, equitable ways. In addition, one of the best parts of our team is the connections we build with each other. Our approach with clients is also our approach with each other – secure relationships! 

Experience Change is looking for new team members who want to make a difference in the Denver-Metro community. The work we do is supporting people’s most significant relationships, including their relationship with themself. 

If you are looking for a micro-managed, fit-in-a-box type of position, or if you don’t want to strive to better our community and world, and are not dedicated to being a decision-maker, then… Please, no need to apply.

Good Fits Are

Real

In that you can be yourself, name how you are feeling, and be true to yourself while allowing others to be themselves as well. You are congruent, authentic, and truthful. You are vulnerable and when struggling, will ask for help, and at the same time don’t expect others to take care of you. You let go of who you “should” be and step out of prescribed roles.

Inclusive

In that you provide equal access to people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized. You include and welcome all people, groups, and parts of people. You reflect upon the power and privilege you hold as well as areas of subjugation for yourself and others. You genuinely acknowledge every person’s humanity and attempt to repair when harm or hurt occurs.

Secure

In that you promote a sense of order, safety, comfort, and health. You rely on both yourself and others. You develop secure relationships with yourself and others. You are available, accessible, and responsive, operating in ways that are predictable and caring. You take accountability and repair when ruptures occur. You strive to be present and allow others to impact you.

Excellent

In that you strive to do more and be great, even if that means making errors along the way. You are self compassionate and understand that “progress” not “perfect” is what we all strive for. You are proactive in learning new things and reflecting on your experiences and others’ feedback to grow. You actively look for and implement changes that will increase efficiency and effectiveness.
