Licensed Mental Health Therapist – Remote

Who are we and why should you join us?

BetterHelp is on a mission to remove the traditional barriers to therapy and make mental health care more accessible to everyone.

  • Therapists who want to focus 100% on clinical work – not on acquiring clients, billing, support, or operations. (We handle all of that!)
  • Therapists who want a feature-rich platform that is constantly adding new clinical tools – not just video conferencing software.
  • Therapists who want the opportunity to work with specific populations or presenting concerns.
  • Therapists who are obsessed with privacy and confidentiality, and want a state-of-the-art technology platform with secure, encrypted phone, video, and text-based communication.

  • YOE: 3+ years (Required)
  • Master’s (Required)
  • Full Independent Clinical: LCSW, LPC, LMHC, LMFT, Psychologist, etc.

  • A private and professional environment for conducting sessions.
  • Excellent written communication.
  • Must have professional liability insurance.
  • Reliable Internet connection.
  • Currently residing in the US.
