Licensed Mental Health Therapist

Job Description

Thrive for the People, PLLC is a high-end group practice providing individual and couples therapy in Seattle, WA. We are located in the Ballard neighborhood. This practice serves clients who identify as helpers, givers, and fixers who are ready to focus on their own mental health needs. Our ideal clients are high functioning, high achieving, psychological minded, and insightful individuals who value mental health and therapy. They are willing to invest in themselves and the therapeutic relationship. 

We value establishing quality relationships over the quantity of clients. We strive to serve clients sustainably by focusing on caring for ourselves as one of the many people we care for. Here at Thrive for the People, you will join a dynamic team of therapists and administrative staff who value each other, practice self-care, and hold a mindset of growth and abundance. 


Thrive for the People offers a vibrant, thriving, and busy workplace. This is a process-oriented, relational, and emotionally focused group practice. We have a team of exceptional therapists and administrative staff to meet the needs of our diverse clients.

The leadership team is committed to the mentorship and training of all staff. We strive to create a community of like-minded professionals who are invested in each other’s growth as individuals and professionals.

We are looking for a full-time, fully licensed therapist (PhD, PsyD, LICSW, LMFT, LMHC) with specialties in treating trauma and working with couples. The therapist will maintain a caseload of at least 20 clinical hours a week. This is a W-2 position

The ideal candidate is a clinician who loves providing depth-oriented, emotionally focused individual and couples therapy, who enjoys establishing strong relationships with colleagues, and who is motivated to fill up their caseload through marketing and networking.

This is a partially remote and partially in-office position. The ideal candidate will have the ability to provide services in their home office and at our Ballard office.

Clinicians who are pursuing their own private practice alongside group practice with Thrive for the People will not be a good fit for this position.

This practice values social justice and anti-oppression and strongly encourages individuals who identify as LGBTQ and/or persons of color to apply.
