Friday, April 02, 2021 8:19 AM | Gal Szekely

Hi everyone,

The Couples Center is currently hiring LMFTs, PsyDs and LCSWs who specialize in Relationship Therapy. We dedicate our entire process to relationships and understanding how we can support couples in their time of need, so it is important to us that your passion is our passion!

We have established a solid reputation all over California, and we receive many calls and inquiries daily from new patients. Because of this, we can help you to build up or keep your private practice full – allowing you to enjoy a steady stream of referrals, so you can focus on your work as a therapist without working hard on marketing yourself.

We have a large, diverse team of nearly 40 therapists across California, and we pride ourselves on being inclusive and welcoming of all therapists and relationships. We welcome therapists from all therapy backgrounds, and we will train you under our modality, as well, giving you even more tools to approach your sessions with.

We love to get to know our therapists personally and stay in contact. We have a full-time intake coordinator that personally speaks to each client and will get to know you on a deeper level to ensure you are matched with the right type of clients for your practice.

If this sounds good to you and you would like to be part of our community or learn more, please view our job information here and send an email to contact@thecouplescenter.org with your resume and cover letter.

Required relevant modalities:

It is very important to us that all the therapists at our center will have a solid foundation in training to work with couples, so we can stand behind our words of providing couples therapy that we all can be proud of and that we are sure is a quality method and proven to work.
