Are you a licensed therapist looking to work from home? Luckily, thanks to the boom of telehealth in recent years, there are plenty of opportunities available.
Many people who struggle with day-to-day life or suffer from mental health issues want therapy but are unable — or lack the desire to — leave home to get it.
Thanks to telehealth jobs, I've been seeing many remote job openings for therapists, counselors, and more from companies that provide online platforms for these types of services.
So if you have the required education, experience, and licensing to do mental health work, keep reading to see what's open now. It's worth mentioning in advance I'm noticing most of these are independent contractor roles.
5 Work at Home Jobs in the Mental Health Industry
1 – BetterHelp
BetterHelp is always looking to add social workers, marriage & family therapists, mental health counselors, professional counselors, and psychologists to their roster. You must be located in the US to qualify.
With BetterHelp, you are free to work full- or part-time hours. They take care of client referrals and billing details.
Per the BetterHelp website, you must be licensed by a State Board to provide therapy (e.g., LCSW, LMFT, LPC, PsyD, or similar credentials). Unfortunately, if you are an intern or require supervision to provide therapy services, you cannot be a provider at BetterHelp at this time.
Also, they are unable to accept substance abuse therapists, school therapists, registered nurses, career therapists, Christian therapists and business/life coaches (unless they have an additional license as a mental health therapist).
