Who is Ellie?

Ellie clinics are structured to remove many of the daily obstacles that get in the way of providing world-class mental health services.

Not to mention providing centralized administrative, technology, referral and inquiry support, scheduling, client/therapist matching, billing and collections, and even CEU programs. Ellie strives to lower the administrative aspects of providing care to the absolute minimum, so our practitioners have more time to focus on what they love - serving clients! We want our people to be happy because happy therapists do better work and provide better client care!

  • Provide excellent customer service for clients and collaborate with a dynamic team to further the mission of filling the gaps in our community
  • Utilize creativity in interventions to help clients achieve and exceed goals
  • Prepare and submit individual documentation for each session per company guidelines and protocol
  • Full-time clinicians are expected to maintain a minimum caseload of 25 hours of client visits, as well as actively engage with the community and our valued partners
  • Coordinate services with case managers, families, work personnel, medical personnel, other Ellie staff, and school staff as needed
  • Attend and participate in all clinical staff meetings and trainings
  • Other stuff we probably forgot to add but just as meaningful and important to your role ;)

  • Required experience with completing treatment plans and clinical case notes
  • Effective written and verbal communication skills

  • Comfort and familiarity working with a diverse client base
  • Proficient in the use of Office 365 and Electronic Health Record systems
  • Credentialed with insurance panels is a plus!


  • Paid Time Off
  • Health Benefits
  • Holiday Pay
