Full-time Licensed Clinician - Start date August 2023

Friendly City Psychology is searching for a full-time licensed clinician to join our thriving group private practice in Harrisonburg, VA. The primary responsibilities of this role will involve conducting initial diagnostic intakes and providing individual counseling sessions. However, additional professional opportunities are available based on clinician interest and professional experience (e.g., couples, family, and group counseling, testing & evaluation, consultation, etc.).

Minimum Qualifications

Qualified applicants will be licensed or license eligible in Virginia as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist or Licensed Professional Counselor. Qualified unlicensed clinicians will be considered if they are license eligible the first date of employment.

Desired Qualifications

We want a colleague who appreciates a good sense of humor, wants to be a part of a healthy community, loves sharing good food, and has a passion for providing high quality mental health services. We want someone who enjoys consulting and collaborating with colleagues and works well autonomously.


We pay people what they are worth to do what they love. We have a compensation-based pay schedule where clinicians are paid a percentage of what they bill, even the owner. We all contribute to the success of the practice. We have designed our contract to be the most competitive one in our market. Compensation depends on a few variables (e.g., reimbursement rates, services provided, sessions billed, etc.). Our current annual compensation range for LPCs is approximately $70,000 - $100,000 and LCPs is $80,000 - $120,000. However, it is possible to make more than that and maintain a healthy work-life balance. We have a very low minimum billing requirement and encourage everyone to take at least 4-5 weeks of vacation a year. The autonomy and flexibility this position provides is hard to find in any other system. You get to create your own caseload, pick the populations and clinical issues you want to work with, and design your own schedule. Most of us work four days a week.

The practice pays for all the business, administrative, and operating expenses, as well as the employer contribution for payroll taxes, yearly licensure renewal fees, professional development budget, continuing education, and professional liability insurance. We provide furnished offices, all the necessary software, EHR platform, equipment, and marketing and advertising materials. We have an amazing office manager who provides administrative, credentialing, and billing support. We also offer health insurance, dental, and vision benefits.

About Us

We are proud of the community we have created and want to make private practice healthy and sustainable. We’ve tried to accentuate the aspects that make private practice appealing and minimize what makes it challenging. You don’t need private practice experience to make a meaningful contribution to our staff. Everyone on our team brings a unique perspective and expertise. However, if you have a particular expertise related to private practice, we’d love to learn from you. We have created a community that provides as much support, care, and resources for each other as we do for our clients. We also make time to schedule long lunches outside of the office throughout the week to support our mental health and our local restaurants! Our main goal is to create an environment where you enjoy what you do and look forward to coming into work every day.
