Or who just enjoys being part of a rich and collaborative team in their clinical work. Helpful to have a foundation in third-wave behavioral therapies, especially ACT, but not required. Even if you don't think you have the exact experience we might be looking for, we encourage you to apply since the fit is extremely important to us.

The candidate would be joining an established and supportive team! Benefits include competitive pay, with no upper limit (no max clients you can see), based on revenue generated, BCBS PPO health insurance, life insurance, 401k with automatic (nonelective) contribution, long term disability insurance, and a combo of lots of practice-related support + independence and autonomy.

At this time, the team has chosen to continue to be 100% virtual, however, if your preference is to conduct therapy in person, we are happy to set that up for you. In the future, we anticipate that we will on a hybrid model including in-person sessions in the office and online sessions that the therapist could conduct from their home.
