Full job description

Independent Contractor Psychotherapist Position- Full time or Part Time

Josh Curie & Associates Therapy is a small but robust private practice that was established in 2019 and is located in Ferndale, MI. Our Clinical Director is a 2023 recipient of the Oakland County 40 Under 40 Award for excellence in advancing and promoting competent and inclusive mental health care services in the region, including economically disadvantaged populations.

Perks of working for Josh Curie & Associates Therapy includes as follows:

-A strong commitment to social justice and inclusive practices both in terms of serving clients and making space for clinicians who come from minority or underrepresented backgrounds. We are LGBTQ affirming and value antiracist practices and healing. Additionally, we believe strongly in economic justice and accept numerous Medicaid & Medicare plans.

-Unlike some other practices that expect a high-volume caseload, this position is suitable for individuals who are either looking for part-time work or who wish to carry a larger caseload. The expectation is an average of 10 clients per week but beyond that, it is up to you how many clients you would like to see. We value quality interactions over quantity of appointments.

-This position can be fully-remote, meaning you can always work from home or your own office and you can reside anywhere in Michigan. A hybrid approach (office-based and teletherapy) is also possible should this model be appealing to you.

-Operate from an abundance mentality, meaning there is enough work and space for therapists and clinicians and so no non-compete is in place.

-Credentialing and billing completed by owner, allowing you to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time adhering to client needs and concerns
