Job/Position Details


Acorn Therapy, PLLC



7500 212th SW Edmonds , WA 98026


Position/Job Description:

Acorn Therapy, PLLC, is hiring a compassion-focused and trauma-trained clinician. We're excited to find a new colleague who is invested in building greater access to high-quality care for adult clients with PTSD, C-PTSD, and other trauma and stressor-related experiences. This is an ideal role for a clinician wanting to work in private practice without dealing with the administrative load of running a business. Maybe that's you!

This position can be remote or hybrid remote/in-person. Remote therapists are encouraged to apply as we do receive out-of-county client inquiries.


Employment Type & Benefits

This is a W2, hourly, flexible schedule position that can be part-time or full-time. Benefits include:

  • PTO accrual (with time off encouraged for your wellbeing!)
  • Monthly stipend for health insurance
  • Yearly stipend for CEUs
  • Support with caseload and marketing
  • Insurance credentialing (if eligible)
  • EHR and HIPAA-compliant phone, fax, email, and telehealth platform
  • In-house professional development and training
  • Consultation meetings
  • Stipend for supervision (if applicable).

Starting pay is $40-$55 per clinical hour DOE and licensure level; $25-$30 per administrative hour.



> Conduct trauma-sensitive intake assessments and MSEs for new clients.

> Provide individual therapy to clients on a weekly basis and/or as needed.

> Complete clinical, billing, and insurance documentation within specified time frames.

Required Qualifications

> Master's degree in clinical psychology, mental health counseling, or equivalent.

> Active and unrestricted mental health counselor license (or equivalent) in Washington State or be able to provide proof of forthcoming licensure.

> Knowledge of contemporary trauma theories that incorporate concepts such as attachment and safety-seeking, developmental psychology, affective neuroscience, psychophysiology, systemic/social-environmental factors, and grief in the context of trauma.

> Knowledge of specific trauma experiences such as intimate partner violence, sexual abuse, childhood bullying, and child neglect.
