Job Title: Therapist

The Center for Inclusive Therapy + Wellness is a vibrant, virtual group practice. We're looking for our next, great clinical team member.

Black, BIPOC, multilingual, sex + kink-positive, poly-affirming, and/ or LGBTQ+, therapists are strongly encouraged to apply.

You work hard. You studied for years. You excelled through an endless string of classes, theses, practica, internships, and fellowships. You jumped through every hoop and exam they placed in front of you because you love this work. You believe in excellent, evidence-based, authentic mental healthcare committed to equity and wellness for all. 

But, the reality of doing therapy can feel hard, complex, and overwhelming. So why should you work with us? Here are our top five reasons:

  • Reason 1: True Work/Life Balance + Integration.

  • Reason 2: Fully Remote Work on Your Schedule.

  • Reason 3: Real Autonomy, Agency + Respect.

  • Reason 4: Excellent Pay/Low Administrative Burden.

  • Reason 5: Commitment to Inclusive Excellence.

Reason #1: True Work Life Balance + Integration. Maybe you've worked in places that don't respect your need for a life outside of work, or set unrealistic caseload minimums that have you speeding towards burnout.

No 8 client days here. Ever. Two, three, and four day work weeks are the norm and expectation.  That means you get 3 or even 5-day weekends--all of the time. You set your own schedule in a way that enables you to do amazing clinical work AND live your one wild and precious life. Set your availability from noon - 4p, 8p-midnight. Do. What. Works. For. You.

Night owl never up before noon? Fine by us. Live your best nocturnal life and diurnal-bias be damned! Need to see clients while your child is at school and dip out in time for a front row seat to their xylophone concert? Go for it and please bring pictures to the next clinical team meeting! That gallery show you've been dying to hit with your partner? Go! We know you'll make sure you're clients are covered and that you have a plan in place for their continuity of care. 

Reason #2: Fully Remote Work on Your Schedule. Maybe you work best in a remote position from the comfort of your home--whether that's Montana this week followed by Aruba next week?

The pandemic proved the efficacy of virtual therapy and the rich benefits of remote work for our clinical team. Those benefits include improved work/life integration, health and safety, and the ability to play with your kitten--Mr. McWhiskersins--between sessions. We went virtual and haven't looked back. You can work remotely from whatever HIPAA-compliant beach, boat, mountaintop, or urban space that has high speed internet and a confidentiality-friendly room where you can ethically and legally practice. 

Reason #3: Real Autonomy, Agency + Respect. Maybe you've worked in places that don't really value your autonomy and expertise.

At the Center for Inclusive Therapy + Wellness, we choose folks to join our clinical team because we know they're excellent.  You don't micro-manage excellence. You just don't do it, folks!

We don't create arbitrary red tape that you have to follow and are small enough to facilitate meaningful conversations if misunderstandings arise. No corporate robots here. We don't expect every member our clinical team to approach work in the same way and believe in taking a dynamic, evolving, and individualized approach with each therapist.

Oh! One more thing, we don't have caseload minimums, non-competes, or contract clauses that keep you from doing other work. CITW is a great fit for a therapist looking to build clinical work as an addendum to other types of work, like being a professor, stay at home parent, or employee at a hospital/college counseling center.

Moreover, when and if you feel ready to do your own thing and launch your own practice, we won't try to force you to pay a fee or coerce clients who want to stay with you to stay with the practice instead.  We'll be cheering you on every step of the way and can't wait to add you to our referral list. We're much more abundance mindset than zero sum over here.

Reason #4: Excellent Pay/Low Administrative Burden. Maybe you love therapy, but not administrative work and business side AND still want excellent pay?

Our pay ranges exceed the national average of $35 per hour. Depending on your caseload, training, and licensing, our pay range varies. With minimum pay of $45 per hour (e.g., trainees with included supervision, folks who want micro-caseloads) to $100 per hour (e.g., 25+ clients per week). Once at full, that comes to $110,000 annually for someone working 25 hours per week with 4 weeks of vacation. Moreover, we offer caseload bonuses and twice annual merit reviews for raises to consider changes in training, certification, caseload, performance, and licensure status. As a solely W2 practice, we cover federal and state taxes and have been told that our pay rivals what you would make in solo practice after overhead expenses.  We also offer annual professional development stipends and options for health stipends for therapists when they reach 25+ clients per week.

When it comes to administrative tasks, we keep the burden low so you can focus on your clinical work. The practice handles marketing, outreach, billing, compliance, and everything so you can do what you do best. Our documentation enables you to efficiently complete notes in as little as 4 minutes. As a self-pay practice, you aren't beholden to Big Insurance tomfoolery and you get paid regardless of what happens in billing. Period. With a billing department on staff--you get to focus on what you do best: life-changing therapy, not chasing coins and worrying about audits.

Reason #5: Commitment to Inclusive Excellence. Maybe you've worked places that minimize your experiences and lens as a BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or other historically marginalized group. Maybe you've faced racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or other discriminations where you've worked?

As a Black woman-led practice, CITW's commitment to inclusion is embodied, deep, and lived. If you, thrive in a diverse space with Black, Brown, and LGBTQ+ folx engaged in real, transformational work--check us out. At CITW, you'll find community and consultation with excellent, inclusive,  providers who share your values and also challenge you to think in new ways in a clinic committed to radical equity, decolonization of the practice, and liberation.
