A Little About Us

We listen to the needs of our staff and offer a healthy work environment with emphasis on work/home balance.

We trust our clinicians to do work they are proud of without micromanagement or excessive oversight.

Even though we are a small group practice, we offer benefits including medical, vision and dental, to all full time employees.

We value growth and diversity. We provide opportunities for mentorship and supervision in a variety of areas including underserved populations and areas of social justice.

Each clinician has a $250 per year training stipend. Our generous supply budget supports a variety of non-talk modalities such as art, play, and horticultural therapy.

Our amazing Front Office Admin takes care of billing, scheduling, and more. Paperwork is virtually non-existent; and at our beautiful Olympia office is compassionate and low-stress.

If you are looking for a supportive opportunity to see clients in dynamic ways without administrative strings, office politics, or overwhelming policies and procedures – then this is the right place for you!
