Employment Opportunity

We are hiring Staff Counselors. 

Please do not make phone inquiries.

Are you interested in working with therapy-ready clients, along with a fantastic group which is a hybrid of counseling agency and private practice? We receive so many requests for service every week that we don’t have enough counselors to serve everyone!

Therapy Austin counselors report learning with us what they didn't learn in school -- specific treatments, the nuances of practice, how to work with wide-ranging clinical presentations, and how to do the business part of therapy. We are proud to offer all employees a formalized two-year training program. Staff counselors avail themselves of more than 20 different clinical trainings, weekly peer consultation, monthly clinical consultation with an expert on complex cases, a Professional Development series, and, in the second year, a Private Practice Foundations incubator. Therapy Austin garners praise from staff as a "well-oiled machine," maintaining effective systems and explicit policies and procedures, employing an outstanding Leadership Team, and adhering to the highest clinical and professional practices. 

Therapy Austin has a dual mission. We are committed to making high-quality therapy accessible to more Austin adults by offering a range of fee options and extended office hours. We are also dedicated to training, mentoring, and shaping counselors into compassionate, curious, clinically astute practitioners with the experience, skills, depth, and business acumen needed to thrive in private practice. These counselors learn how to run a successful counseling business without relying on insurance panels. The agency provides the marketing, the clients, beautiful offices, effective and unique business practices, a culture of support and encouragement, robust weekly CEU trainings, and direct access to ongoing expert and peer consultation. We employ clinicians who are dedicated to developing their own unique craft of long-term counseling.

Who makes a great candidate for Staff Counselor at Therapy Austin? Any therapist looking for a fantastic place to practice; has a passion for psychotherapy; desires a full caseload without doing the marketing; thrives in a well-structured, well-run environment; values peer relationships and the support of colleagues; enjoys practicing with autonomy; readily accesses available consultation; dedicates time to expanding knowledge and skills; strives to make professional development part of a successful career; appreciates beautiful spaces; and those interested in learning how to maintain a sustainable practice without joining insurance panels. If this is you, we invite you to apply to join the team of counselors at Therapy Austin.

How to Apply: 

Interested applicants should email a pdf file of their resume and a thoughtful cover letter to the Agency Directors at frances@therapyaustin.com. Resumes should reflect the applicant’s full training, working, and educational background. Cover letters should indicate where you saw the job posting. They should also be concise, well-written expressions of the applicant’s clinical orientation and interest and experience in counseling. Letters should give an overall sense of who the applicant is and how the applicant will show up as an employee and as a therapist. We really do read these, and sometimes the cover letter matters more than the resume.

We do not offer any practicums or field placements for pre-graduates.
