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 has grown at an exciting rate, and we are thrilled to announce our expansion into the Tampa, 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 a self-starter. Someone who is not interested in being micromanaged, but is open and happy to join the team setting when needed. Our practice has a commitment to excellence, so punctuality is imperative. Improving the mental health of our community is a job we take seriously, but at the same time we must remember to joke and laugh along the way. Put simply, our company culture believes in taking things seriously while breaking the stigma of therapy.

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. The majority of your clients will be couples, but you may be required to see individuals every now and then.

How Does the Day-to-Day Look? 

We provide you with furnished office space, a part-time receptionist (who works at our St. Pete Office), high speed internet, payment processing fees, 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. 

I Can Earn a Bonus? 

This position will become full-time once you reach 25-30 clients. We do incentivize a bonus for 25+ clients a week, and 30+ clients is an option. While reaching these goals are important, the wellbeing of our clinicians come first. We need to live our own message so that we can deliver to the community. That being said, we are 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. 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, we do require you to sign a one year non-compete for the Tampa Bay Area if you are hired. 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 the community. 

We are trusted by News Channel 8 as the authority figure in the Tampa Bay Area for mental health. 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 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. 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, our expectations are 30 client hours a week with a minimum of 20 hours and an average of 25. We work with a marketing agency to book client-specific services so that you can work on the cases you’re passionate about.

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 CEO, 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.

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.

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!
