We Want to Meet You…
Are you a warm, smart, marriage and family therapist with a positive orientation who is interested in doing meaningful work with fantastic clients? Or a skilled, effective therapist with a strengths-based approach who is dedicated to helping your clients grow and thrive? Or a dynamic coach with a behavioral health background, and a passion for positive, empowering, love, life and career coaching? If so, we’d love to meet you.
Let’s Grow, Together
Growing Self Counseling and Coaching a vibrant, positive, collaborative private practice setting in which we see motivated, high-functioning clients who primarily present seeking help with their relationships, a desire to make changes in their lives or careers, or with mild mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. Many of our clients are interested life coaching, and personal growth. All our clients value a positive, evidence-based approach. We are actively seeking to contract with marriage counselors, effective therapists, and dynamic life coaches to join our practice.
We Support Happy, Healthy Helpers
In addition to our dedication to providing a supportive, transformative environment for our counseling and coaching clients, Growing Self is just as committed to supporting talented, passionate counselors and coaches in excelling at the work they love. Our contractors get the benefit of our marketing, billing, insurance submissions and administration systems. We connect you with a steady stream of great clients, help you build your ideal caseload, and assist you in creating your optimum work / life balance. As part of our supportive group, you are free to focus on the meaningful, satisfying work that you do best.
We’re also here to support your professional development, and buffer you from the isolation that many private practitioners struggle with. When you become part of our vibrant, collaborative community you will have access to excellent supervision and/or peer consultation, supportive consultation groups, advanced clinical training opportunities, coaching around how to expand and retain your caseload, access to proprietary training materials, and the opportunity to develop supportive working relationships with a diversely talented team.
Part Time Hours, Full Time Pay
Our compensation is generous, and based on your education, years of experience, licensure, specialties and certifications. Our contractors generally build robust caseloads quickly, and have enormous earning potential — well above the national average salary for helping professions. Best yet, our contractors typically earn more than what they would in a full-time position seeing clients a just few days a week. Our contract positions allow you to create your own schedule and take unlimited time off. This empowers you to have flexibility in your schedule, be there for your family, practice good self care, and create the work / life balance that is so critical for anyone in the helping professions.
We are all about showing up authentically and generously for our clients, and have the same attitude towards our colleagues. Our goal is for you to love this group as much as we do, and feel valued, appreciated, and excited about practicing your craft every day.
