Choosing Therapy is Hiring

Choosing Therapy was founded in 2020 with three clear missions:

  1. Improve the quality of mental health content on web
  2. Increase the number of people participating in talk therapy
  3. Help therapists launch and grow a video-based private practice

Choosing Therapy is currently hiring a Clinical Director, SEO Associate, and Digital Marketer. Take a closer look at those roles below. If you’re a licensed therapist and would like to write for Choosing Therapy, learn more here.

Clinical Director

Choosing Therapy is a platform that helps therapists launch and grow a video therapy-based practice. Choosing Therapy will be providing many of the services that therapists would expect when joining a traditional private practice including patient referrals, “front desk” services like patient scheduling and intake, an EMR and HIPAA-compliant telehealth capabilities, as well as billing services.

The clinical director will be a key part of our management team. You’ll join a fast-paced, collaborative environment and a team that’s dedicated to expanding access to mental health care and increasing the earning potential of mental health professionals.

This position comes with the opportunity to become the public spokesperson for the next major national brand in mental health. There will be regular engagement with media outlets to introduce and promote the Choosing Therapy brand.

Core Responsibilities

Build Our Credentialing Program – The clinical director will create procedures for checking that therapists are properly licensed and in good standing in the states in which they practice. Furthermore, the clinical director will interview and vet therapists prior to them joining the Choosing Therapy platform. Therapists will not be employees of Choosing Therapy but will be approved for using our platform to ensure high-quality care for clients.

Create Client Screening Procedures – We are concerned about potential clients receiving the right care for them. Some potential clients may need more immediate care or a higher level of care than the therapists on our platform provide. We want to identify these potential patients and direct them to the right resources as quickly as possible.

Develop Best Practices for Onboarding Therapists – Comprehensive best practices will allow therapists who are new to the platform to be onboarded quickly and be “session-ready” from day one. You will be the expert on operational procedures and policies for our platform’s therapists.

Monitor and Respond To Client Feedback  – We want to take any feedback about the therapists on our platform seriously. You will monitor compliance to legal guidelines, internal policies, and enforce quality standards.

Continuing Education & Support Programs – As all therapists will be working remotely, Choosing Therapy needs to put extra effort into facilitating a community among the therapists who work with us. The clinical director will lead these efforts, which may include offering CE classes and facilitating peer-to-peer support networks.

Build a Team of Intake Specialists – You’ll be responsible for the initial recruiting of intake specialists (virtual front desk) and billing staff to ensure the department has qualified personnel. You will develop training and procedures for patient intake specialists.

Contribute as Part of the Senior Management Team – The clinical director will serve as the voice of the therapist community on the senior management team. Additionally, the clinical director will play a role in product design.
