People Bloom, a growing psychotherapy practice in Redmond, is looking for a part-time or full-time psychotherapist to join the tribe.

Current opening - 

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) or Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT)

Who’s People Bloom?

Located in the heart of Redmond, People Bloom is close to Microsoft and the growing Eastside. I’m the owner, Ada Pang, and I founded People Bloom in late 2015, after working in community mental health and behavioral health for almost 10 years. I specialize in couples counseling (EFT) and therapy for cancer (ACT, DBT, MCT, CBT). That said, a lot of individuals with depression and anxiety also find their way into my office. In the spring of 2018, Bob Russell joined my practice. He serves our teens and young professionals populations (CBT, Narrative, Structural, Bowenian, psychodynamic) and he’s crushin’ it!

Currently, we’re looking for another W-2 clinician to join our growing tribe. A provider with a gift in building relationships and an interest in providing goal-directed treatment with adults and/or couples is welcome!

Why People Bloom?

People Bloom’s vision is about “helping people flourish and live a life that counts!” That includes both the people we serve and the people who work here. We want to create a work environment where people are fulfilled seeing the clients they want to see, make a good living doing so, feel supported by colleagues, and have fun! We’re invested in your professional development and work-self-care balance. We want to accept you where you are and support you in your growth.

Perhaps you’re hoping to leave community mental health and do something different. Or, maybe you want the flexibility of private practice without the worries of running a business. Whatever the case, there’s a lot to learn at People Bloom.

A Caveat

While we get a lot of inquiries and we’re actively referring people out, we believe a good fit between our clinicians and the client is one of the keys to therapeutic success. When clients find you for you, the work feels different, and providing quality mental health care is what we’re about.

All that to say, if you’re looking for a group practice with referrals to fill up your caseload quickly, People Bloom is not that place for you. We’re a startup with very intentional and individualized plans to build up the caseload of each clinician and their specialties. These marketing efforts are collaborative and will require your time and patience. We’re looking for a clinician who’d be willing to step into that.

  • competitive wages

What People Bloom is looking for (requirements)

You might be a good fit for People Bloom if you:

  • hold an active, unrestricted LMHC or LMFT license in WA state

  • have at least 2 years of experience in community mental health or similar work experience* post grad school

  • are invested in pursuing professional development and providing goal-directed treatment

  • can build up to seeing at least 15 clients per week, including a weekend day

  • can build up to working at least 3 daytime shifts per week between the hours of 7:30am to 2pm, with flexibility on the weekend

  • are open to guidance and are able to work independently

  • are interested in developing or have already developed a specialization

  • are willing to grow your referral base and recognition in the community through blog post writing, networking, giving presentations, etc.**

  • either don't have a private practice on the side, or your practice is at least 7 miles from People Bloom's Redmond location

*Similar experiences include work in a residential placement, psychiatric hospital, behavioral health services, etc.

**I continue to do much of the heavy lifting in making my clinicians at People Bloom known. While I may be good, I’m not you. The only way clients will start calling asking for you is if you also do some of your own marketing. I can provide you guidance on how to do this skillfully.
