 Eagles Nest is expanding our team with therapists who are interested in giving back to our community. We are looking for professionals who reflect the values of Eagles Nest and are committed to making a difference.

For more than 20 years Eagles Nest has been working in the community, equipping people with tools to create a healthier future. We work with individuals and families looking to make change happen in a supportive and positive environment.

Understanding that therapists may have their own practice or work at another clinic, our Program Manager will work with each therapist to find a schedule that works well for both the therapist and Eagles Nest. Therapists will decide how many clients or hours they want to commit to per month. There will be a consistent schedule to allow for easy scheduling and consistency. Therapists will also identify what populations of clients they work with – adults, youth, and/or children and any areas of specialty to ensure we can best match clients with therapists.
 
Therapists will work out of our HOPE Centre location (606 Dundas St. E, Waterdown).
