Therapist- Hybrid Job Description

We are seeking a fully licensed (LCSW, LPC, or LMFT) contract therapist to add to our team.  This position is hybrid with 2-3 days working from home and 2-3 days working in the office in Salem, OR.

Our Mission Statement:


Rooted Mental Health (RMH) is a cooperative (co-op) group behavioral health practice focused on compassion for self, clients, and community.  We serve low-income and other vulnerable Oregonians facing barriers to wellness due to mental health difficulties and traumatic histories.  We believe that in order for individuals to truly heal from issues like mental illness, substance use, unsafe relationships, and others, we must address the underlying root causes of individual, family, and community trauma.  We combine evidence-based practices with innovative treatments to address mental health from a whole-person perspective.  Our goal is to help clients thrive, not just survive.


What makes us different:


At Rooted Mental Health, we believe in putting our values around equity, integrity, simplicity and transparency into practice.  We believe in taking care of our staff by providing paid leave, clinical supervision, and consultation in a supportive team environment.  Most importantly, all full-time staff have the opportunity to be invited to buy into co-ownership built into their contracts.  We are committed to developing a truly cooperative model of delivering behavioral healthcare.


What we offer:

  • A 70/30% split of all revenue, including client sessions, case management time, etc. with an additional differential for bilingual therapists and therapists who identify with marginalized populations as defined by OHA’s Health Equity Initiative.

  • A steady stream of referrals with a full caseload within 30 days of starting.

  • Support with insurance credentialing and contracting.

  • Support with scheduling, client insurance verification, payment collection, and other billing services.

  • Support from Office Manager for administrative duties.

  • Access to Case Manager for clients with complex needs.

  • Flexible working hours- you make your own schedule.

  • Options for buying into co-ownership on a three-year plan by invitation (As a co-op, all of our company decisions are consensus-based).

  • Support for contractor/self-employment PTO contributions through Paid Leave Oregon program.

  • Financial support for CEUs.

  • Salary is dependent on caseload, licensure type, and average billable hours; for example, with 20 billable hours per week for 48 weeks, average salary is $96,000/year. 

Our expectations for therapists:

  • Diagnose and treat mental health disorders from a trauma-informed lens.

  • Conduct bio-psycho-social-spiritual assessments of clients and complete regular updates to assessments per CMS and Oregon Medicaid guidelines.

  • Create individualized treatment plans and conduct regular updates to treatment plans per CMS and Oregon Medicaid guidelines.

  • Follow all agency policies and procedures.

  • Follow all state and local policies and protocols regarding COVID-19 safety guidance and other infection control measures.  

  • Attend monthly staff meetings in Salem, OR.  



  • Minimum of a Master’s degree in psychology, social work, counseling, or related field from an accredited program.

  • Fully Licensed as a behavioral health provider in the State of Oregon (LCSW, LPC, LMFT, or Licensed Psychologist).

  • Willingness and comfort working with diverse populations, including individuals with mental illness, and experience in providing culturally-responsive care. 

  • Ability to complete all necessary client documentation within National CMS and Oregon OAR requirements.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

  • Strong ability to manage time and prioritize tasks. 

Individuals with diverse backgrounds and lived experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
