OptiMindHealth Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) - Wayland, MA (REMOTE) in Remote, Massachusetts
Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) $70K-85K/yr
Position Requirement: Remote Full-Time and Part-time Positions Available
If you are looking for a new opportunity to grow with a clinician founded and clinician led organization, look no further! As an authentic, unique, and skilled counselor, you have a plethora of options when it comes to work. Hospitals, community clinics, investment bank funded group practice startups, state agencies, and more.
At OptiMindHealth, we continuously strive to provide consistent, high-quality care and expand the reach of mental health care services in our communities. Unfortunately, the need often outpaces the services available to those we serve and only adds to the current mental health crisis in our nation. To combat this crisis and further our mission, we need more compassionate and skilled clinicians to join our cause. We are not interested in the “burnt-out” clinician that no longer finds meaning in their work and is just going through the motions; we are seeking people with a passion to provide excellent care, and the belief that we, together, can make a difference. If that's you, then you're in the right place!
Our approach with our team is simple, we take care of you, the clinician, so you can take care of patients. How do we do that? By investing in your growth, supporting you financially, holistically, and professionally, while being flexible regarding your personal needs and goals. The work we do with patients is hard enough and over the years we have found that our team often does their best work when the administrative burdens are taken off their plate and they are able to be fully present with their patients. Our administrative support team handles all non-clinical tasks so that you don't have to think about anything except focusing on your patients.
Why bother with the endless administrative burdens and isolation of private practice? Use your highly trained interpersonal skills to change the culture around mental health care, decrease stigma, and help people who need you, while being supported by an experienced multi-disciplinary team of clinicians. Let us take care of the rest!
Want to work part time? No problem. Want to do group therapy? Sure! Want to do long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy with all of your clients? We do it every day. Interested in treating couples? We can make that happen. Basically, what we are saying is that whatever outpatient care you are interested in providing, we can surely accommodate you. We know you have exceptional skills; we want you to be part of our team.
The perfect candidate will share our passion for improving and expanding access to high quality mental health care and will thrive in a culture that emphasizes creativity, authenticity, humor, compassion, acceptance, and determination. Telehealth or onsite, we support your authentic and unique growth trajectory, while being yourself and having some fun!
We prioritize the clinician's experience by offering excellent compensation, benefits, training/supervision, and flexibility. Whether you're working from home or in one of our physical offices, if you're doing it during your scheduled work hours, you're getting paid for it. Our compensation packages include:
Starting Salary range: $70,000.00 - $85,000.00 per year.
401K with maximum employee matching.
Health care benefits.
Generous paid vacation and sick leave time.
Paid administrative time for consultation, supervision, and documentation.
Full administrative support.
Here are a few extra perks our team loves:
Paid supervision, clinical rounds, and administrative time.
Customized schedules within available clinic hours.
Hybrid work environment if desired: Telehealth and/or in-person (in select locations).
Muti-disciplinary team approach to treatment.
Incredible administrative support team.
Company leadership that understands the practice of mental healthcare.
Inclusive, socially responsible, client focused leadership.
We are not a franchise or a big investor-backed company.
And most importantly, clinician-led and clinician-FOCUSED!
We know what it's like to work in an organization led by businesspeople instead of clinicians. We, on the other hand, have organically grown as a socially responsible company that started as a single provider on a mission to destigmatize and broaden the reach of mental health care, to an integrated and holistic group of exceptional providers with diverse backgrounds working toward that mission. We are fortunate to have significantly increased the reach of mental health care services in our communities, and look forward to continuing to provide consistent, high-quality care to those we serve for many years to come.
We will rely on your expertise to:
Evaluate mental health conditions, diagnose, create, and implement a treatment plan, complete ongoing documentation including further diagnosis, treatment plan reviews, and case notes according to company policy.
Provide excellent care for clients and collaborate with a dynamic team to further the mission of filling gaps in our community.
Utilize creativity in interventions to help clients achieve and exceed goals.
Prepare and submit individual documentation for each session per company guidelines and protocol.
For Full-Time status, clinicians must maintain at least 32 available hours for patient care per week.
Coordinate services with other care providers, families, work personnel, medical personnel, other OptiMindHealth staff, and school staff as needed.
Attend and participate in all clinical staff meetings and trainings.
