Join Our Team


You’re really good at what you do. Your clients come back, and they get better. But you’re feeling burnt out and ready for a change. You want a team culture with benefits and flexible scheduling where you don’t have to see a minimum of 30+ clients a week. Oh, and you don’t want to own your own business. Does this even exist? 

It does. And you know what? – There’s nothing wrong with wondering if there’s more out there than the status quo mental health practice. Blue Boat Counseling is anything but status quo. We’ve been working hard at bettering our client and employee experience, and now we need more people on our team to see it through. 

We want therapists who are first and foremost, badass clinicians. For Blue Boat Counseling, this means you’re confident in your clinical skills, professional and passionate about our clients and their stories. You’re energetic with a fire and see this work as much more than just a job; it’s what you were meant to do.

Some things we think you’ll love about us:

  • We offer our therapists a competitive pay rate along with a ton of flexibility and support. 
  • We have an onboarding program to support you through the first 90 days of employment. 
  • We handle setting up your digital marketing profile through our website and social media to highlight you as a source of empathy and authority in our community.

  • Our therapists must work hard for our clients by building rapport and crafting relationships. It’s what makes clients want to come back.
