Now Hiring Therapists

We are always looking to hire therapists who are the right fit for our practice, our mission, and our values; not just those who need a job! A list of our specific current openings can be found here.

Our immediate needs change from time to time but a perfect fit is someone who has a passion for providing excellent clinical care within the context of systemic and relational conceptualizations. We look for those with expertise (or zest for learning and building expertise) in:

  • DBT
  • RO-DBT
  • CBT
  • PCIT
  • EMDR
  • Gottman Couples Counseling
  • EFT
  • and other evidence-based therapies

The ideal candidate is self-driven, motivated, authentic, communicative, enthusiastic, and direct. Our therapists must be able to maintain strong boundaries with families with intense emotions. Candidates must hold an active Maryland license in a counseling field. Additional licenses in DC or VA would be cherries on top! Any MCCC team member must be affirming of all people and all families to be considered.

If this isn’t exactly a fit but you are still interested in working at MCCC, we are always open to conversation for potential opportunities. Please, don’t hesitate to reach out! And if you happen to know someone who might be a good fit, please send them our way or let us know!!

Reasons why MCCC therapists love working here!

We offer a team approach without the bureaucracy

At MCCC we value working together. Because we work with the whole system, it is not uncommon for one clinician to be treating an individual while another works with the parents or family or siblings, etc. Not only is this better for the clients, but it’s a great way to feel less isolated in private practice.

Supervision, Support and Trainings

We want to help you grow and learn! All provisionally licensed clinicians receive free weekly supervision from our Clinical Director, Sara Varga. Even if you are already fully licensed, you will still have access to both Sara and Laura, who are always available to support you! Whether you have clinical questions or logistical ones, we are here to help! We can arrange for either formal or informal support based on your preference.

All new employees will also have quarterly check-ins with Executive Director Laura Goldstein throughout your first year of employment. Our goal is to ensure both clinical excellence for our clients AND employee satisfaction for our people!

Lastly, we offer periodic in-house trainings and discussion groups for staff development. They are eligible for either Category A or B CEUs depending on the conversation. That’s right- free CEUS for all!

We’ll help you find and treat your ideal clients

Find your niche with us! We will never force you into taking a case you are not comfortable with. We will provide you with a stream of clients. And, we will support your efforts to network and market your services for the niche you want to build!

Our practice offers creative encouragement

If you have a dream to run a particular group or try out a new idea, Laura is 100% behind you. She will help harness your creativity, imagination, and interest into a practical reality. So, don’t let anything stop you from asking!

Our therapy practice values inclusion and social justice

MCCC strongly values equal humans rights and supports social justice efforts. We are inclusive to all people regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or any other identifying factor! We constantly strive to put these words into actions. The BIPOC Therapy Fund is one example of our commitment to actionable change. And Laura is in a variety of consultation groups for DEI as a therapy pratice owner.

You can have flexible work hours & use of our comfortable office spaces

Every office in MCCC is furnished and has windows. Our offices feels more like a living room than a therapy suite and that’s just how we like it! Coffee, tea, and water are available to clients and clinicians. Office pups make rare but adorable appearances!

  • Olney Therapy Office
  • Rockville Therapy Office
  • MCCC Rockville Office Waiting Room
  • MCCC Olney Office Waiting Room

All therapists are currently treating clients with a hybrid approach. While our values and goals are to be primarily in-person, we do support telehealth when it is clinically appropriate and helpful for the client and/or necessary for health and safety. With our office in Rockville and the use of telehealth, we can work together to create a schedule that blends your needs with our practice’s and clients’ needs.

Competitive Compensation And Benefits for Therapists

Employees (yes, we have w2’s not 1099s) are paid fairly! That means fair compensation with regular room for growth, 401k with matching, CEU reimbursement, access to health care and more! After all, we value the mental health of our mental health providers and that includes being cared for from your workplace!
