(Licensed Mental Health Counselor)

LOCATION : Bellingham, WA
JOB TYPE : Full-time (24+ client sessions per week)
HOURS : 4-5 shifts per week/ 8am-2:30pm or 2:30pm-8pm
LOCATION: Barkley and Bellwether
COMPENSATION : % per session ($37.50-75 a session)
LICENSE REQUIRED : Licensed Mental Health Counselor / Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist / Licensed Social Worker
MINIMUM EDUCATION : Masters in Counseling
MINIMUM EXPERIENCE : Counseling / Psychotherapy: 2+ years
START DATE: Due to the time it takes to panel counselors on insurance, it will be approximately 60-90 days from hire date.

JOB DESCRIPTION :
Being in private practice can be hard. We know, because we have done it! Setting up a business, working long, lonely hours, answering all of your own scheduling and reception calls as well as signing up for insurance panels, figuring out and then doing all of your own billing can be incredibly overwhelming. Add the isolation of working in a single office with few colleagues and you have a recipe for therapist burnout. King Health Associates has the solution. We enable you to see clients in beautifully decorated offices surrounded by like-minded colleagues, receive yearly CEU's, health benefits, paid vacation and most importantly, a supportive, collaborative environment.

If you feel overwhelmed by the thought of getting on insurance networks, daunted by the prospect of marketing, websites, advertising, billing, taking insurance and being financially responsible for all aspects of the practice, then King Health could be a great fit for you. Do the words business plan, website design, marketing plan and start-up costs cause you to tremble? Many therapists do not realize that as a counselor in private practice an average of 50% of session income goes to your expenses- before you even pay your self-employment taxes! 

King Health Associates helps therapists focus on the fun part of therapy by taking care of all aspects of the business side of a clinical practice. We provide a full client load, constant, effective marketing, billing services, office support, beautifully furnished offices and a fun and reliable team of counselors and both traditional and natural Psychiatric ARNPs to work side by side with.

This opportunity is ideal for the highly skilled therapist who would like to have a full caseload, and spend time only on the clinical side of their work with clients, with none of the business hassles.

The ideal candidate must be adept at performing ongoing aspects of electronic scheduling their clients, taking electronic notes, creating documents and templates in the EMR, sending and receiving emails, faxes, secure texts, attending to client clinical case details and the usual tracking of account and client status information. They must have an understanding of professionalism and precision in client communication, as well as maintain excellent clinical boundaries.

The ideal candidate will be able to see at least 24-32 clients a week.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS include a Master's degree and full professional license in Washington State including Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist or Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. (Currently, we are not considering applicants who are an Associate level of license. Please note that we will not be able to respond to your submission if you apply for the position without a full license. A license is needed to be on insurance panels. We would love to hear from you when you have your license.)

Responsibilities and Duties

Must be adept at performing ongoing aspects of electronic scheduling their clients, taking electronic notes, creating documents and templates in the EMR, sending and receiving emails, faxes, texts, attending to client clinical details and the usual tracking of account and client status information. (Head's up-if you are a paper only person, this practice is not for you!)

Benefits

Health benefits and more will be offered after 3 months of employment. An 18 month contract is required. Our Staff enjoy monthly team consultations and yearly provided professional trainings, beautiful and fully furnished office spaces, full-as-they-desire caseloads with a regular stream of referrals, work schedules that consider their needs, family responsibilities and life interests, all insurance contracting taken care of, freedom to choose desired amount of time-off, client and insurance billing established and tracked for you, payment between $40-75 per session and most of all a cohesive and supportive team. We also have beautiful trails nearby both King Health locations that you can meander on in-between sessions (or even in session). You don't have to give up self-care to have a full caseload of clients! Just let us do the business side of the work for you.

Qualifications and Skills

We are open to what specializations you have to offer, although we would love a couples specialist as well as a child and family therapist! We ask that health-mindedness be part of your repertoire, and that you are aware of mindfulness and interpersonal neurobiology.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL TO INQUIRE. SUBMIT YOUR RESUME AND COVER LETTER THROUGH OUR APPLY BUTTON. CALLS WILL NOT BE RETURNED DUE TO THE NUMBER OF INQUIRIES.

 


 

 

PSYCHIATRIC ARNP (Closed 11/2018)

JOB TYPE : Full time
HOURS : You set your schedule

LICENSE REQUIRED : ARNP
MINIMUM EDUCATION : (ARNP) Masters

Job Summary

 

Does the hustle and bustle of the big city make you long for a quieter and calmer life? King Health Associates is a unique Mental Health Wellness Center located in beautiful Bellingham, WA. Our current office is in the Bellwether area, and right on the water. Did you know the cost of living in Bellingham is estimated to be 33% less than Seattle?

 

Bellingham is a wonderful and relaxed place to live and work north of Seattle, with easy access to water, escapes to the San Juan Islands and mountain adventures. We are the "City of Subdued Excitement" with local cultural and University venues that support Theater, Music and the Arts in general. Bellingham has plenty of yoga and pilates studios, so self care and exercise are easily accessible and usually within a 5 minute bike ride. Life here is much slower and more contemplative, but still vibrant and interesting. This position is an antidote to high acuity community mental health work, and will allow you to practice your passion and still have a life filled with self care and vision.

We are looking for three Pyschiatric ARNPs to join our practice full time, and whom we can offer a flexible schedule. Would you like to work a 3 day work week or even a 4 day? That is just fine with us.

The perfect candidates will provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, prescription consultation and medication management, but also have an interest in alternative and complementary approaches to offer their clients such as yoga, nutrition and exercise. 

We work with clients whose diagnoses include PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders, OCD as well as clients who experience simple life stressors and come to us for stress management skills. We offer DBT groups, Braving Shame groups based on the work of Brene Brown, a Stepmother Support group, a group for Anxious Attached women, and a Meditation Class.

King Health Associates has a constant stream of patients and you will receive the benefits of ten or more referral sources in house, as well as referrals from our established and trusted medical providers in the community. We offer on site receptionists and full administrative support in addition to an in house biller. Our offices are beautifully decorated and relaxing, and our location is right on the trails at both locations. Our counselors work collaboratively with our psychiatric specialist, and we all enjoy a very amicable and friendly environment.

Health benefits and more will be offered after 3 months of employment. A one year contract is required.
 

Please do not apply for this position unless you currently possess or are currently working toward your certification to become a Psychiatric ARNP. We are looking for an ARNP to perform psychiatric evaluations and medication management services to our clients. We welcome a psychiatric approach informed by complimentary medicine. Due to the number of inquiries, we will not be able to respond to your request unless you are a Psychiatric ARNP.
