Online Mental Health Counselor Jobs: Why PresenceLearning?

Including all licensed behavioral & mental health professionals

Join the leading teletherapy network and take back control of your career and life! PresenceLearning provides exceptional, high-quality, and innovative teletherapy tools and services for preK-12 students to help them grow and thrive. We connect you with schools who need your services and provide you with our award-winning therapy platform to deliver personalized, engaging therapy experiences for students. We also provide you with live support and opportunities for ongoing professional learning to effectively deliver services in the online environment.

 

Work as an Online Mental Health Counselor

Working as an online mental health counselor offers you a powerful career choice—you’ll work when you want and how much you want; you’ll practice at the top of your license on our platform that gives you exclusive access to our digital content library of assessments, interactive games, and other clinically curated activities. You’ll serve a broad diversity of students, all within a supportive community of professional colleagues.

We’ve seen how technology can play a key role in the expansion of equity and access in education. In an on-the-ground career, you’re constrained by geography and limited opportunity in the range of students you can serve. A career in teletherapy can expand your professional experiences.

Take a look at our clinicians FAQ and our clinician blog featuring Five Reasons for a Teletherapy Career along with spotlight interviews with our providers.

 

 

“When I first started offering counseling services online, I wondered what it would be like to establish rapport with my students because that is critical. Would they trust me online? But the reality was they did and so much more. What I actually saw versus in-person sessions was that students just felt really comfortable opening up to me in the online format.”

Robin Corder, Ed.S., NCSP

Why Join the PresenceLearning Network?

When you join the PresenceLearning network, you join an organization that is leading the way in teletherapy. Since our founding in 2009, PresenceLearning has delivered more than 3,500,000 therapy sessions.

Experience the Leading Edge

Here’s what sets PresenceLearning apart:

We care. We’re here because we care about helping kids.
We learn. Everyone has something to teach and something to learn.
We help. No one works in isolation; we help each other.
We strive. We ask how things can be better rather than assuming things can’t change.

A teletherapy career with PresenceLearning lets you work when, where, and how you want.

  • Work from home according to your schedule and needs.
  • Personalize learning for each student with our exclusive, ever-growing library of interactive games and activities to increase engagement.
  • Conduct evaluations with ease using our digitized assessments from top publishers like Riverside, Pearson, and more.
  • Spend more time on therapy with our simplified data collection and progress monitoring.
  • Eliminate drive time between sessions and spend more quality time with your students and your family and friends.
  • More schools partner with us—which means we have more opportunities for you—and a variety of schedule options to meet your needs.

Community of Support

When you join the PresenceLearning Network, you tap into the wisdom, knowledge, and experience of our active, online community of 1,500+ clinicians—whenever you need it. You’ll have the opportunity to network with other mental health counselors so you can practice online therapy techniques and become familiar with the therapy tools available through our therapy platform. Here’s what one provider has to say about the PresenceLearning network:

 

“It’s super nice to have connections with all the therapists in The Lounge—you can follow different threads. You can share what you’re doing with a student and ask for any suggestions. This opens up so much opportunity and learning for us as therapists to have so many people to collaborate with whereas if you’re just at a school, you might have maybe one or two other [clinicians] if you’re lucky, unless you’re at a big district. I’ve really appreciated that.”

Kaitlin Hurley, MA, CCC-SLP

Nationwide School Network

When you join the PresenceLearning Network of providers, you become a part of our nationwide network serving a wide range of organizations in a majority of states. Our providers currently serve students in hundreds of public, charter, and virtual schools plus regional education agencies. And through cross-licensure, mental health counselors in the PresenceLearning network can expand their assignment options and have more control over working hours.

 

FERPA and HIPAA Compliant Platform

Privacy and security matter more than ever today. Protection of student/patient data and information should always be a top priority. PresenceLearning takes privacy and security seriously. The PresenceLearning platform was built to be FERPA and HIPAA compliant.

 

Teletherapy Support

You’ll have lots of support to ensure your success. New clinicians learn how to use the tools in the PresenceLearning platform through an online comprehensive orientation. You’ll have the opportunity to network and share best practices with other online mental health counselors. You’ll be able to join in a range of special events that put you in community with your colleagues and support your professional development. And you’ll have a personal empowerment manager and tech support team dedicated to helping you from the moment you begin with PresenceLearning.
