Mental Health Therapist

Welcome to Work/Life Balance

Mental Health Therapist: Full-time

Posted 09/08/2022

We are proud to create a work place that strives for the perfect balance between the benefits of private practice (choose your own schedule, pick your favorite clients, work for a group practice that is truly about supporting you and your interests) along with the benefits of agency work (consistent paychecks, paid time off, coverage when on vacation, benefits, in-house administrative and billing teams, an amazing work-“family.”)

We are looking for a therapist who has a passion and drive for using evidence-based practices and pursuing certifications in these areas. Our ideal candidate would be someone who wants the clinical freedom of private practice but desires the safety and security of agency work. We provide a flexible benefits package that is sure to meet the desired needs of any therapist.

Our Clinical Positions:

  • We offer various position types which cater to different career ideals desired along with a flexible benefit package, or Cafeteria Plan, that ensures each employee receives the benefits most desired.
  • We highly encourage and support therapists choosing their ideal case types and population. We strongly believe that when the therapist is successful and happy, the client is successful, and when the client is successful, our group practice is successful. We are against a one-size-fits-all approach to supporting your caseload.
  • We provide consultation or supervision to therapists at no cost.
  • 1 paid clinical meeting hour per week
  • 1 paid administrative hour per week
  • Bill 25 client hours per week 
  • Our group practice affords a wonderful location, beautifully decorated offices, professional location with ample parking for clients and free parking for staff.
  • A full administrative and billing staff to ensure a level of legal, emotional, financial, and physical security.
  • Customized Medical, Vision and Dental benefits package to meet every person’s need and CFS pays 75% of employee premium.
  • $1200 stipend per year for education, consultation or certification
  • Retirement plan. We match an employee’s contribution up to 3%.
  • Complementary life insurance policy
  • Reimburse up to $150 per year for individual malpractice insurance.
  • We offer 8 paid holidays, 7 paid personal/sick days per year.
  • 3-5.2 weeks of vacation depending on the cafeteria plan chosen
  • Our Client Support Specialists will ensure you have less than a 1-3% unfilled appointment rate to reduce the length of your workweek
  • Administrative and billing staff collect all client balance and fees so therapists don’t have to
  • We charge and collect late cancel or no-show fees from clients so you get paid for those hours when collected.
  • We have built one of the most supportive, caring, compassionate, fun and lively group practices and have truly become a family.
  • Lastly, unlike private practice where you get paid when the insurance company decides to pay you (a feast and famine approach), we are able to pay our therapists for their billed hours every 2 weeks. Claim denials or claw backs are not put on the therapist.


All therapists are afforded their own office and accompanied furniture, electronic equipment, software licensing, and an addition $250 décor budget. 


To help support our group practice all full-time therapists must provide any 2 of the following: 1) 2 back-up on call appointments per month scheduled outside their normal schedule, 2) 2, 5pm appointments per week, 3) 1 full day off where an intern or Per Diem Therapist can use your office, 4) 1 mid-week half-day off per week (either 8-1 or 1-6), 5) supervise a graduate intern or Associate working towards licensure (get paid for supervision time)

Minimum Education and Experience Requirements:

  • Masters or doctoral degree in Mental Health Counseling, Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, Psychology or a related field
  • Licensed in one of the above fields in the state of Washington. We will seriously consider Associates who embody our mission and vision.
