Employment Opportunities

FULL-TIME CLINICIAN

We currently have a full-time opening for an Oregon licensed mental health therapist (LCSW, LPC, LMFT, or Psychologist) to provide outpatient counseling services.

This is a full-time employee position in a supportive group practice setting. You will be paid a percentage of fees bought in rather than having a salary (approximately 50K-90K per year depending upon licensure and amount of clinical hours worked). Excellent medical and dental benefits available.
