At Whole Valley Therapy, we combine the best of everything to create an exceptional workplace.
On the client side, we meet the needs of exceptional folks who don’t fit the mold.
They’re the outliers for one reason or another—often times having been labeled as too smart, too sensitive, too different from others, too capable, too rational or too emotional. Whatever the reason, these are folks who are traditionally overlooked in private practice mental health based on their identity and/or abilities. While Whole Valley Therapy welcomes clients from all backgrounds, we focus on gifted and LGBTQ+ folks. We pride ourselves on depth knowledge of our niches and know we’re providing something different (and more effective!) than the standard therapy fare for these folks. We aren’t interested in cookie cutter approaches.
As a business, we’re leading with generosity and abundance.
We want to ensure you have a manageable schedule that works for your life, receive pay that reflects your talent, and exist within an ethics of care so you can feel good about yourself and the work you’re doing. We’ve intentionally created opportunities for fully paid health benefits, time off and learning. We want you to do well, and be well.
On the provider side, we’re as quirky as we are serious about doing good work. We are good at what we do, yet not afraid to ask questions or learn what we don’t know. We’ve taken traditional and non-traditional pathways to this work and value the ways in which we each do and don’t reflect the communities we serve. We have done (and continue to do!) our own work, and are therefore able to bring exceptional awareness and insight to our client interactions.
Check back often to learn about the ways you can join us. We’re growing and excited to have you along!
