Our clients are clinically and culturally diverse, high-functioning, and very rewarding to work with. We offer a friendly, warm, and intellectually stimulating environment, ripe for your professional development. Our senior staff and supervisors are thoughtful, psychodynamically trained psychologists whose work integrates interpersonal, attachment-based therapy, CBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based approaches. We understand that context matters, so our goal is to create the greatest possible environment for our therapists to work and develop into their best professional selves.

We are currently seeking fully remote mental health counselors to join our dynamic team in a supportive and collaborative private practice setting.

Requirements

This includes the ability to notice and acknowledge instances when you may be unsure as to how to help a client and the ability to consistently seek and follow guidance from a clinical supervisor and clinical leadership. 
  • Attention to Detail: The ability to identify, process, and communicate detailed information accurately, effectively, and consistently.
