The culture and environment at H2H is healthy, happy and relaxing with dedicated practitioners looking to help our clients move towards their best self and achieve personal goals.

H2H is located in New Albany, IN.

Job Description

H2H is looking for Indiana (IN) licensed mental health therapists (LCSW or LPCC) that are skilled at working with adults and children in an outpatient setting. You will have the unique opportunity to build your reputation as a therapist and case load to suit your personal clinical style, with the room and flexibility to grow as desired.

We value ensuring that our clients have a healthy and enjoyable clinical experience, but it is equally important that our therapists do too! A good fit at H2H will be a self-directed therapist who has ideas and passions that they want to see come to fruition and just needs the support and resources to do so. This is not just your typical stuffy, dark, outpatient office. H2H is a vibrant, energy filled space that needs engaging therapists that bring their knowledge and personality to their practice. Therapists must be willing to think outside of the box to meet client needs, work well with minimal supervision, and be a self-starter. Previous private practice experience is highly valued, as you will already be paneled with insurance companies, however it is not required. H2H will provide you with the clinical resources, marketing materials and support to build your clientele and fulfill your clinical passions as they align with holistic mental health wellness.

Compensation

Current compensation will follow a private practice model and be based on the independently licensed therapists’ ability to bill insurance or accept other payment methods. Additional opportunities for compensation are available and based on additional services the clinician is able to provide and/or desire for additional integration into the clinical practice.
