LMFT providing evidenced based therapy via Telehealth
Title: Fully Licensed Mental Health Therapist
Reports to: Director of Clinical Therapy @ Swell
Compensation*: $60,000 annual salary + benefits
Swell is on a mission to improve mental health through preventative programs and accessible treatment. We envision a world of healthier, happier, kinder, and more mentally resilient people. We’re making this world possible through evidence-backed technology built around both treatment and prevention.
Launching in October of this year, our flagship product, Therapy+ is a mobile-based telehealth therapy application, intended to help military members and their families access evidence-based mental health therapy when they need it, without paying out of pocket. Our product will combine traditional 1:1 video therapy sessions with a mobile application designed to enhance skill adoption outside of the session, and reduce the overall time-to-benefit in therapy.
We’re a small startup with founders passionate about mental health, looking for therapists to join our team and help us bring Swell to the market. If you’re excited about our mission and believe that together we can leverage technology to improve mental health care, then we want to talk to you!
We’re building a distributed team located across several states and leveraging tools and skills to make working remotely work for us. This role will be remote with options for in-person coworking and team building that will grow as we do. We’re looking for someone who can embrace the work-from-anywhere lifestyle while participating in a culture of collaboration and inclusivity across our team.
What you’ll do here:
What the next year will look like:
At first, you’ll be one of 3 people providing therapy at Swell, including your direct manager for now. We plan to start providing video care with our therapists through our app and begin our private-beta with a small group of military families in Fort Campbell in October of this year. We’ll spend the winter getting into a good working rhythm & improving our app and therapy experience for both therapists and our clients. This looks like working through bugs (both technical and operational) and implementing processes that will help us scale the things we’re doing. We expect this time period to be exciting and full of growth for the team as we learn each other and establish our company, but also anticipate healthy friction and a touch of turbulence as we encounter things we didn’t expect and learn from the mistakes we probably don’t know we’re making now.
In the first half of next year, we plan to start scaling video therapy to more people. This means hiring more therapists & supervisors and growing our community presence in and around Fort Campbell. We’ll also start ramping up work on our self-guided care modules and testing them in the market.
We’re looking for several therapists and one director to join our team and are open to folks who are fully licensed with the state of Tennessee and/or Kentucky.
We prefer our therapists to have foundational training in at least one evidence-based therapy modality and trauma-informed care knowledge prior to starting at Swell. We’re happy to support you in further developing these skills through ongoing training, supervision, and consultation.
Individuals of all colors, backgrounds, religions (or lack thereof), sexual orientations, and gender identities who are passionate about helping clients bring about meaningful, measurable change in their lives are encouraged to apply.
