Careers at McNulty Counseling and Wellness

Are you seeking an enriching career with like minded professionals? 

Do you have a passion for uplifting the mental health of our community? 

Are you interested in creating your own schedule while earning bonuses? 

The team at McNulty Counseling and Wellness is excited to meet you!

McNulty Counseling and Wellness of St. Petersburg & Tampa have grown at an exciting rate, and we are thrilled to announce our expansion Wesley Chapel and Bradenton area! We are now recruiting part-time to full-time therapists to join our private practice in varying locations. 

So who is our ideal candidate? It’s not all about credentials

Our philosophy is to promote balance and wellness from a holistic approach. While you will be working on a team, we are looking for someone who is highly self-motivated. Someone who is not interested in being micromanaged, but who is naturally at their best when they’re given free rein to do what they do best and that’s to provide the best psychotherapy possible in every session you have with your clients. We’re looking for someone who also contributes to our twice monthly group supervision where we do anonymous case conceptualizations where you’ll have 10+ therapists, all having decades of a variety of experiences and therapeutic specialties, giving you the best suggestions possible to help you advance yourself as a clinician so you can continue to improve for your clients. Our practice has a commitment to excellence, so punctuality is imperative. Breaking the stigma of people getting help for mental health issues and improving the mental health of our community is our mission that we take very seriously. At the same time, the MCW environment is full of upbeat positivity filled with laughs and lightheartedness outside of session. We do a very difficult job fill that can be physically, emotionally, and spiritually taxing so it’s important to know that your team and the director has your back when you need it. If these values resonate with you, keep reading!

Working at McNulty Counseling

You will be required to see clients face to face, while adhering to national COVID prevention standards. We do offer virtual services through Doxy.ME. Our practice offers services to individuals, children, adolescents, families, and couples. We specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, self-injurious behavior, trauma, parent-child relationships, anger, divorce/separation issues, and grief counseling. All of your clients will be individual, one on one therapy, but if you need to do supplemental family sessions bringing parents or children in, we encourage it! Experience with seeing couples is a huge plus so please let us know if it’s something you’d like to incorporate into your practice. As a director who has worked in many different practices and settings, I have seen how much insurance protocols, over-promising and under-delivering by bosses, toxic workplace environments and relationships, along with poor management can severely hinder our individual growth as clinicians and more importantly, negatively impact the clinician’s effectiveness in session, so it’s very important to me that you get to run your therapy sessions how you want to in the 50 minute counseling hour without any outside influence (while adhering to legal and ethical standards at all times). I’m always open to new styles of counseling and implementation so if you have something that you know would help your client, I will always encourage you to go for it! Continuing education is required so that you’re constantly the best you can be for your clients.

We specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, self-injurious behavior, trauma, parent-child relationships, anger, divorce/separation issues, grief counseling and much much more. Depending on who your ideal client is, we make sure that we get you with the demographic that you’re most passionate about working with.

How Does the Day-to-Day Look? 

We provide you with furnished office space, 2 full-time administrative assistants, high speed internet, practice management software along with payment processing, no clinician responsibility for credit card fees, a huge budget for advertising and we work with a marketing consultant to advertise you as the expert in your field. All of this and much much more in an upscale building along with all the marketing you need to start generating a full clientele list.

Your main responsibility is a commitment to excellence when counseling your clients. You will be responsible for charging clients at time of service, completing progress notes, and some scheduling depending on client preference. Your job is as simple as coming into the office on time, seeing your clients for their 50 minute clinical hour, then taking the last 10 minutes for scheduling, progress notes, and treatment planning. At the end of the day you go home with zero overhead or management headaches. I’ve created this so that you can come in, do your best job counseling, and then head home!

I Can Earn a Bonus? 

This position will become full-time once you reach 22-30 clients. We do incentivise a bonus for 25+ clients a week, and 30+ clients is an option. While reaching these goals are important, the well-being of our clinicians come first. We try our best to practice what we preach. That being said, we are sensitive to clinician burnout, and will adjust these goals based on your personal wellbeing and practice development.

I Can Earn a Bonus?

This position will become full-time once you reach 20-30 clients. There is a bonus for seeing an average of 50 clients and up during a single 2 week pay period (25 clients per week+). While reaching these goals are important, the wellbeing of our clinicians always come first. We practice what we preach about healthy work life balance so we can best help our clients. That being said, I am very sensitive to clinician burnout, and will adjust these goals based on your personal wellbeing and practice development.

Our Business Model

Your focus should be on day-to-day responsibilities and reaching personal goals so again, all overhead is covered by the business. This practice was created so that those who are passionate about counseling can focus on counseling and counseling only.

Community Involvement

We are a family at McNulty Counseling and Wellness and we want clinicians who are looking to join us for the long haul. Because of the significant investment in each clinician, I do require you to sign a one year non-compete for the Tampa Bay Area if you are hired. I have it written in the contract that the non-compete will only be triggered after you’re employed for 45 days. This is what I consider the probationary period where you and I will see if we’re a good fit for each other. I’m very transparent with any questions you have about anything and everything so don’t hesitate to ask. It’s important to me that you feel comfortable and confident joining our practice because, again, I want people who are with us for the long haul. The clinicians we hire are experts in their field and will be advertised as such. It is required that our clinicians take an active role in building their own clientele which includes active involvement in community once a month.

We are trusted by News Channel 8 as the authority figure for mental health in the Tampa Bay Area. You will have the opportunity to be featured on NBC’s bloom once every other month in rotation with other therapists at our office. We discuss trending topics in mental health where you can deliver your expertise to tens of thousands of local viewers. This is negotiable and it’s okay if you don’t want to do it.

Job Requirements

Clients pay at the time of service and we do not accept insurance. This means that you get paid for seeing your clients at the end of every 2 week pay period. Say goodbye to trickled-in insurance payments. Our clients have the option to self-submit to their insurance companies for reimbursement.

  • All candidates must currently have an active FL license
  • Minimum Master’s Degree in a Mental Health field required
  • PhD applicants are a plus.

Before applying, please understand that a self-pay private practice is much different than organizations who do accept insurance.

Once onboarded, clinician expectation is 30 client hours of open availability with a minimum of 20 clinical face to face hours while averaging around 25+ per week. We work with a marketing agency to book client-specific services so that you can work with your ideal clients!

The more availability that you can offer, the quicker my team and I can build your clientele. You are paid per client seen, so we encourage applicants to take this into consideration when applying for this position. While it may be slower for the first couple of weeks, we have a very successful marketing on-boarding process for our new clinicians.

How Much Does it Cost to See a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner?

To get started with a Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner at McNulty Counseling and Wellness, an intake session (biopsychosocial assessment) will take place as the initial visit. This visit costs $350 for a 1 hour evaluation. After your intake session is complete, visits with your Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner thereafter will be 30 minutes long for $150.

Before Applying: A Note from Clinical Director and Founder, Travis McNulty

Thank you for your interest in employment at McNulty Counseling and Wellness!

Please check out our website, reviews, and consider everything discussed above to ensure you’re a good fit. If applying, please provide a brief cover letter including:

  • Why you feel you would be a good fit for our counseling center
  • Who your ideal client is
  • Why you chose to be a therapist
  • Your ideal caseload in a given week along with your ideal schedule
  • Weekends are a plus

Finding the best fit for our practice is important to us – so finding a workable and enjoyable schedule is something we like to achieve. Some clinicians choose to work 4 days a week and see 6-8 clients in a row. Others work 5 days a week with 4-6 clients a day. Either way if you’re full time, plan to see 20-30 clients a week.

It is required you dedicate at least two nights a week (until 7pm) to see clients who require evening accommodations. Note that 3 nights of availability would be the quickest way to build your clientele up. If you’d like to offer weekend availability, this would also expedite the accrual of a full client list. Some of your clients may request virtual, which we will arrange through doxy.me, a HIPAA compliant facetime service.

If you feel as though you are a good fit for this position, I invite you to apply and eagerly await your application!
