Multiple offices in Iowa-Therapists in Private Practice

    Are you looking to launch your counseling or therapy career? Are you ready to work independently and grow a practice you can be proud of? Want to have a private practice, but under the support of an organization committed to integrity and excellence? Do you have an ambitious drive to be the best version of you, while wanting to build roots in a community where you are needed? And do you want to work for a company whose mission is to offer hope to people in need?

    We invite you to apply for a position where you are supported in growing your own private practice, surrounded by co-workers who encourage you daily and supervisors who act more like coaches. Our de-centralized approach to delivering mental health services to people in rural communities gives you autonomy and support at the same time. The private practice model of pay means you are working for yourself, and we are simply here to support you in the adventure of building your reputation. Collectively, we all work for the mission to offer hope and help people find solutions to their unique and complex problems. Individually, you can build your own area of expertise and treatment delivery practice. We provide you with coaching, marketing and administrative support—freeing you to focus on treating your clients and earning a solid income. We offer a buy-in option to benefits, and make a monthly contribution to those benefits for full-time clinical staff.

    Competitive market pay, clinical oversight, consultation, unlimited supervision toward licensure, training options, and liability coverage are included with every position. We have an entire team of support staff to help you grow your ideal caseload so you can select clients who are a good fit with your career goals.

    We do not employ therapists or providers who work in the same position at another agency. We expect our clinical providers to only provide therapy services through our agency due to the potential for conflicts of interest or dual roles.

    We support and encourage our providers to offer group sessions, and our clinical directors are happy to help you get the curriculum ready.
