The Wellness Arts Collective, a group psychotherapy private practice, is seeking qualified Associates and licensed therapists to grow and develop a part-time (5-24 weekly client hours) practice in the NELA community of Los Angeles.

This may be the job for you…

  • If you want the flexibility and warmth of working in a private practice but don’t want to deal with the “business end” of things.

  • If you’re a therapist with a heart for social justice                                               and community engagement.

  • If you are actively engaged in the critical analysis and dismantling of privilege and power – even (or especially) in your own personhood.

  • If you have longed to have more creative freedom in developing and facilitating workshops, groups, and/or an open studio practice.

  • If you wish to do your work in a supportive, collaborative environment that balances your needs as a therapist, along with the therapeutic goals of the clients.

 

We are a small group private practice aimed at working with individuals, couples, and families in the northeast area of Los Angeles. We work with adolescents and adults, providing trauma-focused, culturally affirming and intersectional mental health services to the communities of Los Feliz, Silverlake, Atwater, Frogtown, Glassell Park, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Echo Park, and Glendale from our Eagle Rock/Glassell Park office, as well as online via a secure Telehealth platform. Our business model allows for pro-bono/sliding-scale work with minority and underserved members of our Los Angeles community to be subsidized by full-fee clients, and as such we encourage our therapists to continue to pursue work with the populations they are most passionate about, without the concern that they will be unable to effectively meet their own financial and self-care needs.

We are seeking both pre-licensed and licensed therapists (AMFT, ACSW, LMFT, LCSW, or LPCC) based in California with strong clinical skills to serve individuals, couples, and groups. Responsibilities include providing psychotherapy services, attending psychotherapy/expressive arts therapy conferences (as applicable/feasible) and team meetings (monthly); and completing all paperwork and documentation as required. The ideal candidate has a strong ability to build rapport with clients; is deeply devoted to the decolonization of psychotherapy; works from a trauma-informed perspective; knows and respects the boundaries of California law & ethics; is warm, creative and engaging in sessions; is an effective problem-solver; possesses excellent written, verbal communication, and service skills; and can thrive in a “self-starter/team-player” environment which is simultaneously solitary and communal/collaborative. We are BIPOC, (im)migrant, LGBTQ+, sexwork, and poly/kink/BDSM -affirming. Clinicians with EMDR, Brainspotting, and/or other somatic training are strongly encouraged to apply.

All clinicians are paid as hourly W2 employees. For pre-licensed clinicians, the required clinical/art therapy supervision is paid at an hourly rate and is provided by a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT)/Board-Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC).

We are an equal opportunity employer offering a supportive environment that welcomes diversity and team participation. If interested, please send a resume and cover letter 1) outlining your strengths and specialties as a clinician, along with 2) a description of your ideal client and working environment (i.e. “dream job”) via the "Apply Now" button, below.
